I really enjoyed reading "Tightropes and Teeter-Totters: finding balance in the ups and downs of life," as I felt like it was something I really needed to "hear" (read) at this time. Lisa begins the book by opening her heart and sharing some struggles in her life. This made me feel as if I knew her, but also made me ready to dive into reading thinking hey this woman understands struggles and will be easy to relate to and I was not disappointed. I love the variety of topics that are addressed in his book, each chapter focusing on a different one, from being a mother, having a home that reflects you, managing money and emotions. I felt as if Lisa was having a conversation with me instead of me sitting by myself reading this book, it was flowed that nicely and I felt connected throughout reading the book. Each chapter has stories, suggestions and some steps to take and each chapter ends with an "assignment." The guided assignment is a push to really take charge and put into practice what was discussed in the chapter. I love being left with the thought that we each need to be ourselves and create a life and a balance that works for us, not for someone else, and each person's balance and life is going to be different. I highly recommend this book for mothers to read, you will be encouraged.
