My Thoughts:
"Only Love Today" is one of my new favorite non-fiction books. I adore this book. Instantly from the first chapter, your heart immediately feels lighter than it did the day before. As a wife who has struggled to just be or to let things go, this book has helped me breathe easier. As a person who loves to serve and never stops, this book has been made me thinking about stopping and wondering how to just be and to enjoy. Life isn't in the performance, but in the small moments that you don't get to ever have back. I am learning to just enjoy and just be. If you've ever struggled with the questions of am I enough, this book will make you know that you are exactly who God created you to be. I love the practical, heartfelt and simple tips. I feel like I am having coffee with Ms. Stafford over things in my life that matter and issues that keep arising. This book comes at a perfect time in my life and I love it. I give this book 5/5 stars because this book is for the mother, wife, single woman. It spans across for women of all ages, spaces and stages of life, which I can glean from. Thank you to Zondervan for providing me a complimentary copy for review. I was not required to write a positive review. 
About the Author:
Five years ago, Rachel Macy Stafford admitted the honest answer to the question that had been a long-time source of pride: "How do you do it all?" Rachel's answer was painfully simple: "I miss out on life, and what I miss I cannot get back." That very day, Rachel began her Hands Free journey to let go of distraction, perfection, and societal pressure to grasp what really matters in life. This life-long writer and certified special education teacher felt compelled to share her journey with others through the blog, "Hands Free Mama." Using her skills as a writer, teacher, and encourager, Rachel provides readers with simple, non-intimidating, and motivating methods to let go of distraction and connect with their loved ones. Rachel's work has been featured in USA Today, TIME.com, MSN.com, PBS.com, The Huffington Post, Reader's Digest, and hundreds of other online and print publications. Her blog currently averages two million visitors a month. Rachel loves being outdoors, baking, and doing acts of kindness for those in need with her husband and two daughters who inspire her daily.
