"You were made for more than living a stressed-out, guilt-ridden, always-behind existence! This book rescues you from being stuck in crazy mode and provides a road map for finding peace and joy in the middle of your everyday life."
—Crystal Paine, founder of MoneySavingMom.com and New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode
"In a culture where overwhelmed is not only accepted, it seems to be the norm, (Don't believe me? Just scroll through your Facebook feed!) this helpful book helps you dare for more. Kathi and Cheri don't just tease you by dangling the promise of peace in front of your eyes, they gift you with this practical tool that will help you discover a deeper relationship with the Prince of Peace. Loaded with measurable steps and memorable stuff, this is one book you'll want to re-read every year in order to regain your perspective and reclaim God's peace."
—Karen Ehman, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and New York Times bestselling author of Keep It Shut and Listen, Love, Repeat
"For many years, my business card could have read, 'Glynnis Whitwer, Chronically Overwhelmed.' Oh that I had read Kathi and Cheri's book back then...my family (and soul) would have thanked them! In Overwhelmed, Kathi and Cheri address the drowning cry of this generation with honesty, humility, and hope that speaks to the depth of my heart. This isn't a 'pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps' approach, but the kindest most encouraging look, with innovative solutions, at a problem that plagues women everywhere. I loved this book!"
—Glynnis Whitwer, Executive director of communications Proverbs 31 Ministries; author of nine books, including Taming the To-Do List and I Used to Be So Organized
"Wow! What a practical resource! We all experience feelings of being overwhelmed but often don't know what to do about it. Kathi and Cheri provide practical wisdom to dissect the feelings, determine the causes, and help us discover new strategies and healthy habits. My stress level decreased just reading these pages!"
—Jill Savage, Founder and CEO of Hearts at Home, author of Better Together
"In a culture that measures success according to crowded calendars and impossible commitments, Kathi and Cheri promise rescue. No more flailing about in the Ocean of Overwhelm. No more panic and empty promises to 'slow down' and 'say no.' Instead, a practical and personal plan to escape the chaos and come up for air. Hang on, my friend. Help is on the way."
—Michele Cushatt, author of Undone
"If you've picked up this book, you're probably in over your head. Take courage—Kathi and Cheri have been there. Boy, have they been there! And they have hard-won, hands-on, priceless advice on finding your way to calmer waters. The best part is: They know that everyone has a different life and show exactly how to tailor their advice to suit your personality and your own set of ongoing challenges. Don't miss this. Overwhelmed is a quick read, but an invaluable one for every woman."
—Shaunti Feldhahn, Social researcher and bestselling author of For Women Only
"Although we live in a world that views busyness as a virtue and overwhelmed as our trophy, Kathi and Cheri gently lead us with humor, personal stories, and powerful practical steps into a life of more order, peace, and space to breathe. They're the girlfriends extraordinaire who let us know we're not alone but won't let us stay on the crazy treadmill we've been pounding. I'm off to apply their awesome applications!"
—Amy Carroll, Author of Breaking Up with Perfect and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer
"Warning! This book might just mess up your maxed out, emotionally overloaded life...if, and only if, you take the suggestions seriously and choose to move toward the mentoring offered by Kathi and Cheri. Their help is pragmatic...practical, possibly even painful at times, but always purposed. Overwhelmed is page after page of the motivation and inspiration you need to progress beyond your body-mind-and-soul stress."
—Gwen Smith, Author of I Want It All and Broken into Beautiful and cofounder of Girlfriends in God

That’s been me too many times to count. As a youth, I never learned the life skill of time management or organization. Mostly, I learned the hard way. Too often, I’d find myself under water.
Overwhelmed has taught me some ways to manage my time much more efficiently. I now feel freed up to be more of what I’m made to be!
Kathi Lipp and Cheri Gregory have written tons of great examples from their own lives, how they learned to get out from under overwhelmed. I could have read this book in 2-3 days, because the stories were so engaging. Instead, I took a couple of weeks. I wanted some extra time to implement their suggestions into my daily routines before moving on to the next chapter.
If you’re looking for a book to help you manage time, money, relationships, and clutter, I highly recommend this book.
Rather than lists of to-dos and tips that make you want to scream: "But where do I start!?!?", Kathi & Cheri lead you, one small step at a time, to a more peaceful you. It feels like I just sat down with two close girlfriends who, on hearing that I’m overwhelmed, make me a cup of tea (and scones!) and listen to me. They’ve been there before, and they’re going to come alongside to help me get out.
They don’t presume to know what’s best for me. They know I’m an individual. They know God made me different than he made them — or you. And they know that the way for ME to get out of overwhelmed is to look at MY personality, MY values, the size of MY plate.
And they know that the way to help YOU get out from overwhelmed, to quiet YOUR chaos and restore YOUR sanity, is to first look at who God made YOU to be. They’ll come alongside and guide you step-by-step through that un-overwhelming process to restore your sanity. (Or in my case, some of my sanity; they can’t be responsible for genetics!)
