Two lines from Jennifer's book that sum up the whole nicely is: "Balance doesn't demand that I 'do it all', wearing myself out for what matters little. It only encourages me to 'give it my all', pouring myself into what matters most".
This book is broken down into three parts. Part 1 begins with three chapters which explain what balance is, why we need balance and how we can find balance. Part 2 includes seven chapters with each chapter creatively breaking down the word BALANCE with practical strategies on how to live a balanced life. Part 3 closes with two chapters that give a quick review of the previous chapters as well as an encouragement and sums up balance from an eternal perspective.
Sprinkled throughout the book are thought provoking quotes in boxes. At the end of each chapter there are a few questions and sometimes simple charts for you to answer and fill in to help you define what balance looks like for you.
Overall, a very refreshing and encouraging book based on Biblical principles. A must read if you find yourself not having time to do "what matters most".
