Tightropes and Teeter-Totters (Review)
This review is for the book "Tightropes and Teeter-Totters" by Lisa Pennington. In this book, the author understands that we are all on this "see-saw" of life, trying to balance everything between work, family, being the perfect spouse, being the perfect parent, feeling guilt over what we do, feeling guilt over what we don't do,etc. etc. She talks about balance and how it looks different for everyone. She uses an acronym for balance that will help you go through situations and: begin, assess, learn, account, notify, change, and endure. As the reader goes through the book, Pennington will help the reader apply all of these things to personal growth, spiritual growth, marriage, parenting, maintaining the household, finances, mood swings, friendships - basically every single tenet in life that we probably feel we're out of balance in and failing at!
This book is an easy read but it is great for self-reflection! I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to all my mom friends in particular.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book.
