    This book by Lisa Pennington is subtitled: Simple Steps To Turning A Hard Day Around. The back cover captures the intended audience perfectly:

    Dirty dishes overflow the sink. Your two youngest kids just began their third round of hand-to-hand combat today. And now the washing machine wont start. Visions of putting a home-cooked meal in the oven while the family plays happily in the living room evaporate amid scramming, complaining, and slammed doorsand thats not even counting what the children are doing!

    The author gives personal stories, practical advice, all mixed with a dose of humor! At the end of each chapter, there are simple assignments which may consist of questions, instructions, scripture to look up and read, charting, journaling, etc.

    To be honest, I am not a huge self-help book fan. I accepted the opportunity to read and review this book because the title was intriguing and it turns out that this book is a good read! There was not a whole lot of new advice that I felt I should follow, however, there were plenty of reminders of tools that I already knew but havent practiced in awhile. For a mom who has not had the opportunity to be mentored by experienced women, this would be a great book to glean practical advice and tools! The authors humor and positive attitude made this book an easy read (even though I cant relate to the desire of tearing apart a kitchen and remodeling it on my own)! I also loved how she sprinkled scripture throughout her chapters which was very encouraging! I can definitely see how this book would be especially helpful to a busy mom of young children (and/or many children) but it could be helpful to all moms in various stages of parenting!

    In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission I am required to disclose that David C Cook (through Shelton Interactive) provided this book for free in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

    As a reader, I have an aversion to non-fiction. I want to like them, I just generally dont. Mama Needs a Do-Over was just the opposite for me!

    Lisa Pennington is an amazing writer with a great sense of humor. She reminds us with these simple mother-to-mother words how to overcome ourselves and live the fulfilled life God has intended for us. Were given quick and easy tips to get to the bottom of our daily challenges to overcome and be the conquerors God intended instead of victims.
