Genre: Non Fiction, Religion, Christian Life, Women’s Issues
Release: January 6, 2015
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.
Deal with Stress: Nourished by Becky Johnson
If you’ve ever asked yourself “How can I possibly deal with stress without losing it?” you need to read this book. Don’t get me wrong, my life is pretty good. I love my job. I love my family. There are no huge issues that are causing me stress in my life. For me, and probably you, it’s a lot of little things. It’s not being able to find that form your son needs signed for school right now. It’s being late for an appointment. It’s your toddler’s temper tantrum. It’s your teenager’s detention.
There are a lot of things that cause women stress. From this book, I’ve learned that things like clutter, busy schedules, negative body image, marriage, kids and feeling like a spiritual slacker compared to others are common for many of us. In this book, Becky and Rachel share some of the causes of stress in their lives and how they deal with them. I love the outlook from 2 different perspectives. Rachel is a young, new mom and Becky is at a later stage in life where she is just becoming a grandmother. I could relate to both of them in different ways.
In Nourished, you’ll look at each of the most common causes of stress and how Rachel and Becky are dealing with them in their lives. Then they’ll share ideas that you can use to deal with those stresses in your life. For the most part, I found their ideas helpful and to be things I could really apply to my life. The only thing I wish they had gotten into was dealing with older kids specifically rather than just younger kids. Play dates and nap times aren’t a part of my life right now but dealing with stress caused by rebellious teenagers would have been very welcome.
