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.

Editorial Reviews

"You'll laugh, you'll cry, not because of whacky hormones but because this book is both funny and tender. Through Lorraine’s teaching  I found ME! Her words touched my  heart and soul with God's love and grace. Thank you, Lorraine, for this passionate, inspired guide of God's truth, God’s hope, and God’s help and healing for weary women everywhere. "     
Annette Hazuka, Sr, Sales Director, Mary Kay Cosmetics

"Your BFF just moved in with you!  As Lorraine Pintus courageously exposes her struggles through the challenges of womanhood you’ll think you’ve been friends forever. Sacred truths, startling revelations and intriguing research are laced with corny humor that’ll keep you reading right through to the endnotes. You might even find yourself saying, "I know you, right?!" to her picture on the back cover."
Sandy Clark, freelance writer and editor.

"After 20 years of involvement with women’s health issues, I’ve witnessed not only the physical  obstacles women battle with hormone issues, but also the spiritual struggles. Lorraine’s book serves a unique yet largely untouched need by addressing the spiritual component. She offers godly wisdom wrapped in delightful humor. This precious book, written by a precious lady, is certain to make a positive impact on many levels."
Kristine Klitzke, RN, BSN, Speaker, Author of Hormone Balance: A Matter of Life & Health

"Lorraine is a powerful voice speaking God’s message of hope and redemption when it comes to dealing with tough women’s issues. Now she addresses the hormone swing in a way no one else does—through the lens of God’s Word. Get this book for yourself and share it with your daughter. The refreshing view of womanhood in these pages transcends generational lines."
Tammy Maltby, author, speaker and media personality for It’s a Good Life TV.

"Love the prayers, the transparency and the humor in this book. I've dog-eared pages, used it as a coaching tool for my clients, and devoured it for my own purposes. I’m planning to do the Bible Study with my clients. Thank you for this invaluable resource."
Ginny Edwards, complete health make-over coach

"When I read the opening chapter title, "Confessions of a PMS – Crazed Saint," I thought, PMS and Saint should never be put into the same sentence—they don’t belong together!  But as I read the book, I was relieved to find that I wasn’t alone in my battles to fight the demons that come with my monthly cycle, and that the hated time of the month could, instead, be a blessing from God. This book is an incredible encouragement to those of us who feel like failures and horrible women when it comes to PMS.  Thank you for reminding me that even when my hormones are out of control, God is still in control!"
Melinda Hughes, who can now put PMS and Saint in the same sentence!

"As a follower of Jesus, mother and sufferer of  EXTREME PMS, I most adamantly recommend this book for women of all ages. Lorraine's insights, testimonials and practical wisdom helped relieve myself as well as my daughter, from the unnecessary PMS drama in our lives. Her wisdom, through the book and a few emails and phone calls, helped us approach PMS with a much more rational mind-set. I am forever grateful for her counsel."
Laurie Jackson, health coach

I dare you to find anyone more passionate, dynamic, or Kingdom-minded than Lorraine Pintus.  Whether writing or speaking, Lorraine ministers to women right where they are, guiding them to deep truths, but always with hope and humor.  Her new book, Jump of the Hormone Swing, provides both practical and biblical wisdom for an issue that many struggle with yet few understand.  Ladies, put it on the top of your must-read list!
Jerusha Clark, speaker and author of Every Thought Captive, When I Get Married, and Living Beyond Postpartum Depression

"I loved the way Lorraine explained through "drama" how the menstrual cycle works.  I also loved that I was able to take the strategies she suggests to stand against PMS, but also in other issues in my life"
Tammy Ansari, just another woman in God’s army that needs continual  guidance to fight the good fight

"Finally!  A book on PMS that you'll actually love to read! Insightful, inspirational, and wonderfully entertaining!  Lorraine tackles an age-old problem from a new perspective to bring help and hope to women everywhere! A brilliant blend of information, illustrations, and heartfelt stories - you'll want to read this one more than once!" 
Patti Gordon, speaker and author of Press Play: Taking the Single Life Off Hold


"With an incredible passion for God and helping women, Lorraine jumps into this mysterious subject (PMS) with a vigor that will radically change the way you've always viewed your hormones.  You'll come face to face with your Maker and understand, finally, how to be victorious through PMS, not just endure it."
Ralina Ankrum - wife, mom, aspiring writer, and former PMS bad girl

"The description of Eve and God’s forgiveness changed my view of Eve and my attitude towards monthly periods.  Your dramas and word pictures are awesome and I love your sense of humor!"
Fran Upton, Bible study leader

"This book has saved lives on the ground (i.e. my husband’s) AND  30,000 feet in the air (i.e. the passengers I serve as a flight attendant)! The wisdom, prayers, scripture, and advice in this book saved my sanity when hormones were making me crazy. I’m sure Lorraine wrote this book just for me."
Kit May, Flight Attendant, wife and mom

"Imagine my surprise when, having plodded through the cyclical symptoms of PMS for decades, Lorrraine pointed out what I’d been missing all along—the spiritual symptoms of hormones.  Her book encourages women with practical tips and tools to joyfully embrace this unique aspect of womanhood."
Rebecca von Boeck, nutritional enthusiast, aspiring author and hormonally challenged saint

"I thought I was the only one who suffered spiritually with PMS!  To read Lorraine’s experiences shared with such honesty and humor, and most importantly with a biblical perspective, was one of the greatest blessings I’ve ever received.  This book was life-changing – for me and for my whole family.  Thank you Lorraine!"
Jenny Abbott, wife, mother, grandmother, menopausal and loving it!!!

"I thought this book might be "too little too late" for me since I’m beyond PMS but  Lorraine totally surprised me.  This book is for women of all ages & stages of life. It’s packed with practical information to lessen hormonal stresses, but it also takes a woman into a journey in her soul.  Here you’ll grasp the specialized love that God has for you in a fresh and absolutely new way."
Mitzi Paradise, Mom and Nana who is beyond PMS but not beyond the reaches of God's love and plan for women

    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!
