From the Publisher

Are you tired of being all things to all people? Are you overwhelmed by busyness, guilt, and stress? In Women Who Do Too Much, Patricia Sprinkle shows the woman who does too much how to do less. By tackling the larger issues of goals and commitments first, she helps you determine what God created you to do - and helps you to focus on doing just that. In addition, she gives tips to help you handle the demands of everyday life - plus exercises at the end of every chapter to help you apply what you learn. Who doesn't need help taming the tiger of time? With a warm mixture of practicality and humor, Patricia Sprinkle creatively offers hope for all of us who need to capture, conquer, and control the ever-running hours on the clock. When finished, we see time not as a ferocious animal, but rather, as a friend - a precious gift from God. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Trying to be everything to everyone causes feelings of frustration, resentment, stress, and fatigue. How do you do everything you are expected to do and still have time for yourself? The answer is that sometimes you can't. That is where "Women Who Do Too Much: How To Stop Doing It All and Start Enjoying Your Life" can help provide solutions.
The book starts with an analysis of why we often do too much. The price you pay for this is a loss of your inner peace and happiness. If you want to be at peace and happy you have to stop doing so many things that you don't necessarily like to do and do more of the things that you want to do, the things that bring joy to your life. Of course, that is easy enough to say, but how do you actually go about doing it? That is the subject of the remainder of the book.
A serious subject written in a fun and insightful style it is a practical guide based on Biblical principles. A recommended read for anyone feeling the frustration of too many things to do and too little time to do them.

Format: Paperback
At a time when there is a glut of books telling women how to squeeze more and more into each day, Patricia Sprinkle tells us how to say the "N" word--NO! I love it. As wives, mothers, employees, Christians, daughters, sisters, friends, we are constantly being given MORE to do. Ms. Sprinkle shows us the way to sift the wheat from the chaff and do the things that matter most...to ourselves as well as to others. I'm a big fan of Sprinkle's terrific mysteries, but this book will stay with me a lot longer.

The book comes with very good practical and insightful advice and tips for the busy woman. It incorporates the practical with the spiritural realm which helps to put things into proper perspective. I highly recommend this book for the woman who does too much.

Format: Audio Cassette Verified Purchase
I grew up in a church that felt subtly misogynistic, in which "Serve the Lord with gladness" often seemed to mean "do what the narcissistic male minister wants." Nourishing ones own God-given spirit was routinely dismissed a selfish, and going to therapy was a big no-no; problems should be shared only with God. As a result, I haven't been to church in years. As I was listening to these tapes, I laughed as the author used a sense of humor to share the anger and resentment that arose from time to time in her efforts to serve God in the way she had been taught she should. I thought, "If I had grown up with the author's curiousity and pluck guiding me, I might still be a Christian." She offers the message that each one of us is a child of God, made to reflect some aspect of the divine, and that inner callings--whether they are urgings to write, to make art, or just take a nap--are worthy, important, and valid. She encourages listeners to explore these callings through a variety of means--women's groups, journaling, counseling, etc.

The program ends with some hints about how to live more efficiently which, although helpful, started to feel a little like a to-do list--eg clean up your cupboards so you can find things more easily. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars.

The book arrived promptly in good condition. It is filled with positive affirmations, but light on useful guidelines for how to better manage a busy lifestyle. Not exactly what I was looking for.
