This humorous, yet compelling first-person look into the lives of two women explores the complexities of continually balancing marriage, work, parenting, and self in ways that our mothers and grandmothers could not have imagined. The authors' perspectives on faith, family, and careers are surprisingly similar in some ways, yet quite different in others.
"What I most appreciated about this book was its honesty and because it made me laugh. When Jane talks about throwing applesauce at her husband because he asked her how much money she had spent that week, I could totally relate. Her take on Pampered Chef parties made me call my best friend (who is getting ready to host a Pampered Chef party) and read parts of it aloud to her. I also really liked seeing behind the curtain at these women's professional lives. Jane is an English professor and Sue is a pastor, and I like the ways that they talk about what it's like to teach and preach. Sue's thoughts about attempting to comfort parents who have just lost a child were beautiful, even more so because she has three children. My husband said that the authors are also neighbors, and I wish I lived on their block! Enjoy the bookit's a treat." Leah Jenson, Kansas City, MO (as reviewed on Amazon.com)
"I saw myself in these chapters in some pretty amazing ways. These women write well, are honest in their mistakes and successes. My husband read it too and laughed at how these women talked about things I do all the time." as reviewed on Amazon.com
