Book Giveaway: "Life Management for Busy Women"

It's time for a GIVEAWAY!!! And to go with this weeks theme I'd like to giveaway the book titled "Life Management for Busy Women" and the study guide that goes with it! So this is two books - one to read and one filled with verses and a place for you to write down what you have learned.

These books are by Elizabeth George - one of my FAVORITE authors. Here
are a few of my favorite quotes from this book:

"Remember we live life one day at a time...yet we are living for eternity in that one day."

"Behind the passionate life of every passionate saint is a passion for God and his word."

"Discipline (in reading God's word) do it because it is what you need to do and are supposed to do and because it is the right thing to do...somehow...the duty of the discipline turns into sheer delight and we reap the blessings of a priceless, tender relationship with the Lord a thousandfold."

"Never major on the minors."

"We must never allow ourselves to be mastered by anything or anyone other than Jesus.We aren't meant to live as we please. We are not meant to have what we want. We are meant to live a life of self-denial, self-restraint and self-control."

"Paul's secret to discipline...he wanted to please God."

"Strive, reach, press, endure, fight, run and continue!"

I definitely struggle in making sure that my walk with God is consistent.

I think I'm a big, old mess...I struggle in all of these areas, but my walk with God is where I'm struggling most right now. I NEED to carve out time first thing in the morning to give to Him, but I don't do it. I need to remember to go to Him first when making decisions, but I don't. He seems to get lost in my busy days, and I need to remember that's He's right there--I just need to let Him in. :)

Do I only have to pick one? I think I struggle equally in all areas - thats the point of working mom. You feel like you never do anything 'enough'.

I've been awar erecently that I'm spsending lots of time reading about (and some time doing) things re: home management, while my relationship with God is kind of stagnant.

(Not sure if I can enter the contest. I live in Scotland but will be in America visiting my family 30 July - 16 August!)

And I subscribe to your blog via bloglines - does htat make me a follower? ;)

I struggle the most with making God the center of my life in all I do. Specifically reading his word always seems to elude me. I find something to put before that.

Elizabeth George is one of my favorite authors too! I love this book. I need to read it again...the last time I read it I was as a stay-at-home mom, I have a different set of "life managament" challenges. I'm struggling with finding the balance between managaing my housework, time with my little girl, and time in ministry as my husband is a pastor. This has been on my mind a lot lately! Thanks for the giveaway!

It's a toss up between my physical life and my homemaking skills. Sigh
Maybe the book will help! ;-)

In this season of my life, I just feel like I'm trying to balance the collision of marriage, mothering, ministry, and trying to be a daughter, sister, friend, and "person." :) Causes me to be in much prayer daily and always asking God to help me use my time His way each day.

I know I could not pick just one. I struggle in all of these areas.

Which area of your life do you struggle the most to manage?
Your walk with God, your physical life, financial life, your homemaking skills, your marriage, parenting, your friendships or ministry life.

For me as well it is a struggle to manage all of those areas at once. There are days when one stands out more but really I struggle with balancing my life. I have recently been encouraged by remembering that it might not totally matter WHAT I am doing as long as I am doing it FOR HIS GLORY. That helped me even this morning as I woke up in a slight panic over all that is on my plate this week.

I think that I sometimes struggle in my marriage. I am not as compassionate towards my husband as I should be. I also struggle with my homemaking skills. I feel like I should be more available to my family and more willing to take care of my house :) Thanks so much for the giveaway!

I don't know what area that I DON'T struggle with (at least at some point). I have a hard time balancing everything. I feel if I get a handle on one area, I look around and I've neglected another area.

How fun Courtney!!
This is an area, life management, that the Lord has been working with the Wood girls on! This would be a wonderful resource for us to learn from. We are currently working on adding exercise to our daily routine, keeping our priorities- His priorities and living with that gentle quiet spirit He finds pleasant!
P.S. we are following you and LOVIN it! :-)

I work FT and homeschool my 2 boys, ages 11 and 9. I feel like I have the management area down but I would definitely like a closer walk with God. Actually, a closer walk with God would make all the other options listed easier!

Wow. Do we have to pick just one?! I'm having a hard time in many areas right now. My walk with God is suffering, my house is suffering, my physical body is suffering... my time with my son is suffering. I feel like I need a break. It's hard to keep pushing onward! I could use some encouragement.

I would have to say that I struggle with my housekeeping skills unlike when I was single and on children. There are only so many hours in a day and I feel like this is the one area I put on the back burner when it comes to purging and cleaning out.

Love this book and the quotes you have listed - perfect read for me and now!
