Subtitle: A search for health, happiness, and a full night’s sleep.
By Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph
Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph comprise a mother-daughter writing team. This is their second time writing as a team, their first being a cookbook, called “We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook”
In this latest book, they share with their readers points that enrich and nourish lives. Becky describes Rachel as, “an extreme get-er-done type gal.” She describes herself as, “more of a ‘porch swing and hammock’ girl. In one short passage, Becky tells of ‘loving acceptance’ when unforeseen things happen and how the calm, cool, and collected attitude helped them when they were on a trip. She and her husband worked within the parameters of the circumstance and received some special perks because of the way they came across to those in their path.
Rachel’s life is that of a young mother with a very busy husband and a very active toddler. Her husband is a high school football and basketball coach. She gives interesting ways to nourish herself, her marriage and her soul. In one section she tells readers to make a list of activities to calm their souls. She shares her list to get them started.
I enjoyed reading this book; I can almost identify with the stage of life that Becky is in.(Becky's husband works as a literary agent,traveling with his work. Mine is retired and a homebody. That and I am a few years her senior.)
I applaud Rachel for her creativity in finding time and energy to write and in finding time for herself amid her busy life.
I would recommend this book to anyone who finds herself bogged down by the details of her life.
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through its BookLook bloggers program. All I was asked to do was give an honest and unbiased review.
