Balanced: Finding Center as a Work-at-Home Mom -- a Litfuse review

Balanced is a book that comes straight from a mom who juggles six children, a husband, and a writing career, as well as church duties and support groups. Tricia Goyer, author of some wonderful non-fiction and Christian novels (contemporary, historical, and Amish to name a few), has written this book as a help for other work at home moms (WAHMs). However, you don't have to have a WAHM paying career to appreciate this book. If you're a stay at home mom raising your kids, this will benefit you.

This book will help you organize your busy schedule and keep you grounded on what's important and what's not. Interspersed in this book are tips for how to "get 'er done", keeping a relationship with God, and keeping your sanity amid a chaotic schedule.

I truly appreciated this book. It has come at a timely moment for me. I'm seriously struggling to keep my head above water, and with Tricia's advice, I hope to get more organized!

If you're looking for a well-organized, easy to read and enjoyable book for balancing your life, I would highly recommend this one. This one's a winner!
