About the Book:

She is a master hat juggler, and one of her roles is that of lighthearted mentor for overwhelmed women. Her qualifications include being a wife, the mother of three young adults, a popular public speaker, and the author, co-author, or ghostwriter of many books, articles, and short stories.

My Review:
 Today, we as women juggle many tasks on a daily basis. We have many opportunities so therefore we have a lot to accomplish in 24 hours. In the Bible it tells us...to much is given much is required (paraphrased). So we ladies go along our marry way and drift from task to task until we can't drift anymore. Such an arduous task but task we don't take lightly. Even though the roles of mother, caregiver, wife, etc. has changed it still remains the same, in the fact that we are doing it all and are exhausted.

 The author Joyce K. Ellis, has revised her book from all those years ago to include more modern day information to apply to our lives.We don't need an instruction manual that tells us how to organize our lives so that we can take on even more roles than the ones we have been given. We need to know how to appreciate the God given ones we have already obtained.

 God has been so good to us, we need to appreciate the roles of wife and mother more fully. The dishes can wait!
