I had heard such great things about this book that I was excited when I saw our library carried it. I'm not sure what I was expecting from the book, maybe some suggestions on ways to change your life, but whatever it was, it didn't come through. I felt pretty disappointed throughout the entire book. It was like the author spent the whole time saying that her life used to be hectic and always chasing movement and perfection and busyness but now she isn't. But how? Why? What tips and tricks do you want to share with the rest of us? "Make the decision to slow down." "Get a basketball hoop." "Throw candy." Again, maybe those resonated with others, but for me I walked away expecting and hoping for so much more.

I enjoyed the book and it was like reading my inner voice that is always saying, "Don't forget you're important in your own life." It is definitely spiritually based, so if you are a non-religious person, this might not be the book for you. If you look past all of the "God stuff," it is a motivational and easy read. As a religious person myself, I enjoyed the spiritual component.

Way more God and church in the text than I was lead to imagine. It took a long time to arrive on my hold shelf and I am returning it immediately. No thank you.
