Stretched Too Thin, by Jessica N. Turner, is written for working moms who face the daily struggle of finding time in their day for everything. She covers topics such as taking care of yourself, your home, your children and spouse as well as fulfilling job duties. Some of the things that the author mentions in her book that stand out to me are: to separate the “need-to-do” from the “nice-to-do”, setting realistic goals, taking advantage of time spent in the car and at meal times to connect with your family. But the things that stands out the most to me is taking care of yourself. Take care of your physical as well as spiritual needs. Connect with others, take care of friendships and make time for your spouse.
The author has written this book using her life experiences to help other moms who may be struggling. The one thing I like about this book are the reflections at the end of the chapters. I was not really impressed with this book, as most of the things the author mentions are just common sense things that most moms struggling with life have already thought of. I also was let down with the fact that there is minimal mention of Christian life in the book. I expected a little more since it is published by a Christian publishing company.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads Blog Program. This is my honest review.
