"Like most women today, I struggle with feelings of 'too much to do and too little time to do it'! My friend Carolyn Mahaney, along with her daughters, offers practical, biblical advice to help us plan, evaluate, strategize, and make wise choices concerning our time and priorities. As a godly mentor, Carolyn takes us by the hand, points us to God's Word, shares out of her own life experience, and shows us how to apply God's timeless truths to the contemporary challenges we face as women."
—Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts
"'We can actually do all that God has called us to do . . . and we can do it in a peaceful, joyful manner and get sufficient rest beside.' When I read that, a light flashed on in my soul. Of course! I knew that! Once again Carolyn, Nicole, Kristin, and Janelle have created a book that's fun to read and filled with truth that resonates because it's biblical and practical and manageable."
—Noël Piper, Author, Treasuring God in Our Traditions, Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God; Wife, Mother, Grandmother
"Shopping for Time offers a glimpse into the delightful Mahaney household. This book offers no simplistic solutions to the perils of superwoman syndrome. Instead, it deliberately leads women to the bedrock of biblical priorities and then suggests real-life methods by which to apply them."
—Mary K. Mohler, Director, Seminary Wives Institute; Wife of R. Albert Mohler Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The Mahaney women invite you to pull a chair up to Carolyn's kitchen table for their weekly Q & A. The Feta cheese and French fries will be flying as will some valuable wisdom and encouragement for whatever season of life you find yourself in today.
Every woman knows that a good day of shopping begins with proper planning. Women spend time searching out coupons and special sales, making lists of what to buy and who to buy for, noting which stores to shop and which ones to avoid, marking the days for the biggest sales, memorizing which seasons certain items are on sale, and most women who love to shop know exactly which racks have the biggest mark-downs. They know exactly where to go and when so that they do not waste any time.Read more ›
So, when I saw this book pop up on my Amazon suggested products page I was excited, especially because Caroyln wrote it with her three grown daughters who all contribute to the GirlTalk blog. I didn't want to even waste time waiting for it to come in the mail so that same week I visited the local Christian bookstore and bought it and after reading this review, I hope that is what you will do too!
Shopping for Time helped me think through my days and how I spend my time and I easily saw how I need to readjust a few priorities, step-it-up in some areas and completely overhaul others. I know that I don't always manage the time God has given me with the intensity and purpose that I ought to, so as I read this book I began to see that even though I thought, "I'm doing my best" managing my time, I really wasn't.
What I enjoyed most about this book were the five practical tips to help me evaluate and accomplish the things that God has called me to do as a Christian woman. Too often we are harried, frazzled and overwhelmed as we run around trying to get done all that we think we need to do each day. This book is not a "system" or 5-step plan to life success. It is simply the disciplines the Mahaney women have exercised over the years that have greatly maximized their usefulness for the Lord.Read more ›
