Hey Mamas! I’m back with another book review. To my surprise much sooner than I imagined. Apparently, the literary Gods have smiled upon me and granted my wish for reading time. This week I’m gonna give you the scoop on Tightropes & Teeter-Totters by Lisa Pennington.
First a little more about the author. Lisa Pennington is a blogger at ThePenningtonPoint.com and author of Mama Needs a Do-Over. She’s a wife and Mama to nine kids. Lisa also has a hobby farm and an essential oils business. Now, onto the book.
This was an easy and eye-opening read. Lisa talks about finding balance, what it is (and isn’t) and gives real life examples on how to do so. I felt like I was having a cup of tea and chatting with a friend while reading this book.
Lisa breaks balance down into and acronym:
She takes those seven steps and applies them to the following areas of life:
- Me, Myself & I
- Being Married
- Home Sweet Home (this chapter literally made me get up and move some things around!)
- Getting Out of the House
- The Blessing of Friends
- Money Matters
- Taming the Tongue
Each chapter also has an assignment at the end to help you absorb and apply the info you just read.
I like that the book has real life examples but isn’t a memoir. It’s not your average “I did it this way” kind of read. I think it’s a great read for women from all walks of life as we all struggle to find balance in all the many things we have our hands in.
Verdict: Grab this book for yourself and a friend. This would also make a good book club or women’s group read.
