I have learned one thing in the last few years: there is no such thing as balance in life. If you are doing one thing – then you aren’t doing another thing. And so many of us women try to spin about 1000 plates.
Whether we are mommying and working, or mommying many, or doing a ministry at our church or teaching bible studies in our home, or being involved in creative communities, balance is hard to get right.
When I was younger I wasn’t very good at the balance beam in elementary school PE, but now that I’m older I have gotten better at the tree pose in my yoga practice.
Lisa Pennington gets the life of balance. In her book, Tightropes and Teeter-totters, she doesn’t appear to have it altogether, but instead, through humor and great tips, she helps us all maybe not fall completely off.
She hits on marriage, parenting, having a peaceful and clean home, all done with humor, personal illustrations, and biblical truth. Its a quick read and one you can for sure pull some tips from.
Thanks to Litfuse for this book. All opinions are my own.
