Nourished I would really like to give this book 3 1 2 stars, but in the absence of half stars, I am choosing to round up because overall the book was an enjoyable read I particularly enjoyed the conversational tone of the book, which was comfortable, but not too familiar A couple of the chapters were particularly encouraging and I found myself thinking of young women I would like to share the tips with Being a parent of adult children and a new grandparent, I particularly identified with some of Becky s stories, while Rachel seems like a very typical young wife and mother in today s society, with all the modern struggles of having it all and doing it all Both are excellent writers The book was engaging and funny as well as practical I enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter.What kept me from loving this book were a couple of things First, I felt like the book tended to a self help mentality, while using Scripture and the occasional churchy terms as a way to keep their book in the Religion section I do have some disagreements with them over some of the doctrinal content And second, while Becky alluded numerous times to big struggles in her own life, in fact, writing an entire chapter on her depression, she stayed deliberately vague on what those struggles were She speaks One of my favorite books is Danielle Laporte s The Desire Map After reading, I identified my CDFs, or Core Desired Feelings the way that I want to feel in my life most of the time One of them is Nourished.As a new mom of a 3 month old, I have been struggling with my CDFs and after a particularly malnourished week, where I was completely exhausted, overwhelmed, and did I mention exhausted, a friend mentioned this book Nourished in her Facebook post Well of course, I had to go and get it that very day I read it in one week and I must say, it may just be my Book of 2015 I felt like Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph were talking directly to me I could relate to so many of the stories and the feelings that were expressed But the book went beyond expressing my feelings for me the authors provided ways to With Humor, Honesty And Faith Becky Johnson And Her Daughter Rachel Randolph Determine To Tackle The Stuff That Is Stressing Them Out, Once And For All From Interviews With Friends And Lots Of Research They Came Up With The Ten Most Common Stressors That Mess With A Woman S Mind Daily Challenges That Routinely Steal Her Sense Of Peace And Joy Together Becky And Rachel Cook Up A Plan To Live A Less Depleted And Nourished Life Opposites In Many Ways Mom And Daughter Share Their Successes And Failures As They Make Peace With Their Imperfect Bodies, Create Living Spaces They Love, Get Wiser In Their Relationships, Tame Jam Packed Schedules, Settle Into God S Love, And In Short, They Stumble And Journey Together Toward A Life That Better Nourishes Them Body, Mind, Soul And Spirit.
