 Tightropes and Teeter-Totters: Finding Balance in the Ups and Downs of Life
About the Book:
Lisa Pennington knows how to get up after losing her balance, even with a full house, a not-so-full bank account, and never enough energy. In her latest book, she offers readers:

Strategies for finding balance in marriage, motherhood, and bad moods
Playful yet Biblically based tips for turning hard days around
Inspiration for shaping obstacles into opportunities
Ways to respond to irritations with gratitude
Enthusiastic encouragement for living out God’s purpose.

For every woman who wonders if her satisfaction in life will ever match her dreams, Pennington has real-life answers full of hope and humor.

My Review: 
 Being a wife and a mom and a daughter among all the other things that women have to be in this life is daunting, if not more so especially these days when we hold down even more jobs than we use to in times past. Lisa Pennington shows us that through God's help we can master all things. She provides tips, strategies, and lessons learned from herself and others to help guide us along on this road called life.

 The author explains that many times when we run into a crisis situation as a mother with our children and we start freaking out because things are not going right. It is usually our faults for expecting too much or that we expect the plans we make to line up flawlessly with out children and in reality many times it doesn't. So we as the mom and the adult need to change to fit the situation. 

 The author did a fantastic job of relating the things I need to work on to balance everyday life within my household.
