Nourished- Sunday's Book Review

Authors and bloggers Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph address the common daily stressors of women with humorous stories, trial-and-error plans, and practical take-away insights.
Order-loving Rachel Randolph and her laid-back mother Becky Johnson might be opposites in some ways, but there’s one thing they both want to figure out: why is life so hectic and draining? Through interviews with friends and lots of research, they determine the most common stressors that mess with a woman’s mind. Together, they cook up a plan to live a less depleted and more nourished life.
The wise and witty co-authors of the heartwarming We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook, Becky and Rachel share their successes and failures as they make peace with their imperfect bodies, create living spaces they love, get wiser in their relationships, tame jam-packed schedules, settle into God’s love, and more. In short, they stumble and journey together toward a life that better nourishes them—body, mind, soul, and spirit.
With humor, honesty, and faith, this mother-daughter duo offers a breath of fresh air for readers of all generations and life-stages who find themselves drained, discontent, or discouraged—and know there has to be a healthier alternative.

My Review:
Are you running around feeling empty? Burned out? Is your cup empty? Nourished  is a self-help book that both Becky and Rachel wrote to tell of their own successes and failures as they learned they need to nourish themselves. They learned that not only by doing this for themselves was beneficial, but also for their entire families, their health and their happiness. This book is filled with practical tools like menu planning, exercising, organizational advice, how to handle stressful dinner situations with children, making peace with your worries and things to soothe your soul. These are just many of the ideas found in this book, but there are so many more. This book isn't just for moms, but for women in general and can be applied to so many working women I know who are burned out and stressed too. I loved the practical advice it gave. As a stressed out, worn out woman, this book was perfect for me! Why not start making yourself a priority?
Thank you to Zondervan for providing me a complimentary copy of this book. I was not compensated for a positive review, but provided this book for review purposes only.
