"Bounce Back: When Your Heart is Empty and Your Dreams are Lost" by Julie Clinton is a life coaching style Christian based book on helping women who are hurt or struggling, to learn to: breath, believe, and bounce back. Clinton gives in a text book format using scripture and women's life stories to share how to do those three things to recover from pain and enjoy life again.
I read this book when I didn't have any true problems or struggles currently happening in my life. So, I found it to be a bit of a downer. However, about in the middle of the book, Clinton takes on a chapter about the common "overwork" of women, especially mothers. You know, where you hide in order to have a little peace. This part of the book I sat up and took notice. I completely absorbed this area of the book. It actually made me feel better that what I go through on a regular bases is common enough to be given a whole chapter. I would expect that the rest of the book, though not pertaining to me at the moment, would be exceptionally helpful to someone who is struggling. I received this book for free from First Look.
I have a spare (courtesy of Worthy Publishing) to giveaway to a reader. Leave me a brief message on the moment in motherhood when you knew you needed to breath, believe, and bounce back.
