Review&Giveaway: Nourished by:Johnson/Randolph

 Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness, and a Full Night S Sleep
About the Book:
With humor, honesty and faith Becky Johnson and her daughter Rachel Randolph determine to tackle the stuff that is stressing them out, once and for all. From interviews with friends and lots of research they came up with The Ten Most Common Stressors That Mess with a Woman's Mind: daily challenges that routinely steal her sense of peace and joy. Together Becky and Rachel cook up a plan to live a less depleted and more nourished life. Opposites in many ways mom and daughter share their successes and failures as they make peace with their imperfect bodies, create living spaces they love, get wiser in their relationships, tame jam-packed schedules, settle into God s love, and more. In short, they stumble and journey together toward a life that better nourishes them body, mind, soul and spirit."

About the Authors:
Becky Johnson is the author, coauthor, or collaborator of more than forty books. She's a natural storyteller who has inspired and entertained audiences for years. Most recently, she co-authored We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook along with a blog by the same name with her daughter, Rachel Randolph.

Rachel Randolph writes and speaks about parenting a toddler, young married life, and her and her husband’s unlikely journey to a plant-based diet with humor and honesty. She co-authored We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook (Zondervan 2013) with her mom Becky Johnson. Rachel is married to Jared, a high school football and baseball coach. They live near Dallas, Texas with their son Jackson.

My Review:
 In all aspects of our lives, we need to be nourished. In our church life, our married life, in our eating, in our living. Mother and daughter duo Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph team up once again to show us the meaning behind Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness, and a Full Night's Sleep. The chapter that I appreciated the most was the one on Nourished Relationships. I liked the one on the secrets of the happiest couples. I read with much delight Becky's experiences with young couples.

 I can attest to many of the suggestions or tips in the book listed in this section. I have been with my now husband since we were 15 and 16 years old and I will have to say that she is so right on many of her points. My husband and I have flirted with each other in almost every way she suggests for the whole time we have known each other. I told my husband that he should be proud that it is possibly that by that one fact alone, we have nourished our relationship with each other. Of course, he got a big kick out of that and frankly so did I.

 The authors provide some really good information to help young women as well as the seasoned variety. I read along to make sure I hadn't forgotten anything in all my years. I really enjoyed their writing style and the book is full of humor---which was very light-hearted and fun to read!
