Balanced by Tricia Goyer

Disclosure: I received a complimentary free copy of the book for the purpose of writing a review. I was not entitled to give a positive response, but my own thoughts and opinion of the book.

My Review of Balanced:

Tricia Goyer’s new book, Balanced, is a useful book in terms of having someone who faced her share of struggles in the matters of balancing out time.  Her writing reminds me of that a conversation from one woman to another.  She is down to earth and approachable two things that make her book smooth easy reading.

One of my favorite gleanings from her book:

“Balance is not possible—at least not in the form of a perfect schedule or a perfect routine.  Even if we find balance one day, it most likely will slip between our fingers the next.”

This impacted me for too often I feel the need to reach a perfect schedule where things fall in step to the beat of the clock.  Too often I feel the frustration and stress of keeping that "balance" that is not even possible as Goyer stated.  And is it not so true that many times we hold ourselves to a state of perfection that cannot be attained?  

These are one of the many tips that I have gleaned from this book.  I tell you that I found Balanced an encouraging read.
