Proper Perspective on Time
Miss Pickwickian of Oregon, 8/31/2011
Carolyn Mahaney and daughters challenge the way we spend our time and how it shows our priorities while offering perspective, tips, and strategies to accomplish what we're really here for.
I'd reread this book a few times now, and benefited from each new read.
"Shopping for Time" does not simplify life to a 12 step guide towards the perfect existence. Instead, it explains five ideas to help the day fall into place and get what really matters DONE. Rise early, pursue Christ with Bible in hand, take time to plan (alone if necessary), evaluate and pursue proper relationships, and be productive in daily life by depending on Christ.
A great encouragement if you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. (Guilty as charged.) And it's short and direct enough that you won't even feel bad taking the time to read it. It's an even more beneficial break than Facebook. Promise. ;-)
The style is easy, humorous, and doesn't take itself to seriously.

Every woman loves to find a good bargain. We spend much time and effort in hunting for just the right item, at just the right price. In Shopping For Time, the Mahaney ladies use the metaphor of shopping to help us see that using our time well is just as if not more important than using our money well. With humor and grace, they give tools to help us to shop for the best 'bargain' for our time.
