Publisher's Description

In Jump Off the Hormone Swing, Lorraine Pintus shares openly about the inner tension a woman can feel at certain times of the month between wanting to love her neighbor on one hand, and wanting to strangle her and shoot her ugly dog on the other. While many books discuss the physical and emotional symptoms of hormones, this is the first to explore in depth the spiritual aspects. Jump! is a mentoring book, not a medical book. The focus is on attitude, not anatomy. Lorraine shares insights from her own journey as well as wisdom from 1,500 women she surveyed. Sound biblical wisdom is laced with humor because after all, when it comes to hormones, you either have to laugh or cry, and laughing is better!

Get answers to these questions:

  ·   What is the number one thing I can do to feel better physically?

  ·    How does PMS and perimenopause affect me spiritually?

  ·    Which foods ease PMS symptoms...which make them worse?

  ·    How do hormones affect my brain?

  ·    Why does stress make my PMS worse and what can I do about it?

  ·    Are there benefits to PMS and perimenopause? (you'll discover 10!!)

  ·    How can God possibly love me when I hate myself? 

Includes a 10-week study for individual and group use.

    The author is both frank and funny while also presenting the spiritual side to womanhood. Without a lot of medical jargon, she gets down to the point with practical applications for dealing with PMS. I loved the book so much, I bought copies for my mom, sisters and best friends! I wish I had had this book when I reached puberty! A must read for any Christian woman - from puberty to post-menopause!

    After hearing the author interviewed on Focus on the Family, I bought this book as a gift. One of my gal friends really struggles with personality changes, depression and a host of other issues - only when she is hormonal. She has some hope after reading this book. She told me, "This writer sounds like me!" She likes the Scripture used throughout and plans to share this book with her daughters.

    This book was so good for me, and I would recommend it to all women! I can't tell you how many times I thought, "How does she know exactly what I am thinking?" or "I am so glad I am not the only one to think/feel/do that!" while reading this book. Bringing the spiritual aspect into this topic really tied everything else (the practical, the mental, the physical) together into a whole.

    There is also a 10-week Bible Study in the back of the book, which was such an excellent resource. I was able to incorporate it into my regular Bible study easily.

    Lorraine Pintus has created a wonderful tool to help women understand themselves more fully while realizing that ultimately we are accountable to God. This book helped me come to a place where I can better handle every day of the month knowing that God's grace, strength, and forgiveness are always available to me.

    Lorraine Pintus has given us a valuable resource in Jump Off the Hormone Swing. If you suffer from PMS or perimenopause... or even if you don't... you'll want to read this book. Before I read it, I didn't think I had any hormonal problems. But then I read this:

    "Oh, the inner turmoil when one moment I was on my knees compassionately praying for my neighbor, and the next moment I wanted to strangle her and kick her ugly dog."

    It startled me! It made me laugh out loud... And then I thought "How does she know me?" Page after page she was writing my story. I couldn't put it down. I couldn't believe what I was reading. She knows exactly how I feel and what I'm going through. So that must mean... I'm not the only one!

    Before I read this book, I would have never related my feelings to hormones. I thought I was just a weak woman. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get it all together. Now I know. Hormones.

    Lorraine takes on tough questions like:

    •How do I manage the swing between feeling super confident and energetic one day, and incompetent and listless the next?

    •How do I handle my self-hatred after downing an extra large bag of peanut M & M's the day before my period.

    •How is it that I suddenly find my husband so annoying?

    •How can God possibly love me when I hate myself?

    Unlike a medical book, Jump Off the Hormone Swing addresses EVERY aspect of PMS. Physical, Mental (Mood), and Spiritual. She gives a very simplified explanation of what part each hormone plays in your body... the effects of too little, or too much. Lorraine gives advice on diet and exercise, relieving stress, planning ahead for the days that you know will be the hardest for you (Who would have thought?), and most of all... she reminds us to invite God into these issues as well.

    Lorraine shares from her heart and a Biblical perspective. She shares many of her personal 'aha' moments with us. She shows us how to 'do' life... how to be a Godly woman even in the middle of a hormonal storm. You will also find a 10-week Bible Study in the back of the book, along with a symptom tracker.

    There is so much in this book I'd like to share that I can't recommend it highly enough.

    *I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review. ~Thank you!
