Overview

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.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Like most women today, I struggle with feelings of 'too much to do and too little time to do it'! My friend Carolyn Mahaney, along with her daughters, offers practical, biblical advice to help us plan, evaluate, strategize, and make wise choices concerning our time and priorities. As a godly mentor, Carolyn takes us by the hand, points us to God's Word, shares out of her own life experience, and shows us how to apply God's timeless truths to the contemporary challenges we face as women."
Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts

"'We can actually do all that God has called us to do . . . and we can do it in a peaceful, joyful manner and get sufficient rest beside.' When I read that, a light flashed on in my soul. Of course! I knew that! Once again Carolyn, Nicole, Kristin, and Janelle have created a book that's fun to read and filled with truth that resonates because it's biblical and practical and manageable."
Noël Piper, Author, Treasuring God in Our Traditions, Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God; Wife, Mother, Grandmother

"Shopping for Time offers a glimpse into the delightful Mahaney household. This book offers no simplistic solutions to the perils of superwoman syndrome. Instead, it deliberately leads women to the bedrock of biblical priorities and then suggests real-life methods by which to apply them."
Mary K. Mohler, Director, Seminary Wives Institute; Wife of R. Albert Mohler Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
