Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


“I feel so stressed out! I just can’t do it all!” How many times have you said that? If you’re like me, more times than you want to admit.

Author Carolyn Mahaney and her daughters, Nicole Whitacre, Kristin Chesemore, and Janelle Bradshaw invite you to join them at Carolyn’s kitchen table for some girl talk about Shopping for Time. The hostesses of the blog girltalk, they offer five biblical principles on “redeeming the time.”(Ephesians 5:15-16) Although the book includes some organizational tips, it deals more with the spiritual principles that allow you to get the organization right with the right attitude.

Warm, friendly and packed with personal anecdotes, this little book is inviting and refreshing. – Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

Overwhelmed. Miserable. Exhausted. These are often the words that women use to describe their high-demand lifestyles. How are women who are always on the go expected to cope with the demands of work, family, and ministry?

Carolyn Mahaney and her three daughters, Nicole Whitacre, Kristin Chesemore, and Janelle Bradshaw, recognize the needs of Christian women today. Shopping for Time offers the solution to women who truly desire to glorify God with every use of their time.

These authors offer five tips to help ladies do it all without becoming overwhelmed: rise early, sit down, sit longer (occasionally), choose friends wisely, and take fifteen minutes. By weaving biblical principles of God’s Word into these keys, these authors give women practical advice on how to fulfill—and excel in—their daily responsibilities.
