Hot to Do It All and Not Be Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed. Miserable. Exhausted. These are the words that women often use to describe their busy lifestyles. How are women expected to keep up with all the demands of work, family, and ministry? Carolyn Mahaney and her three daughters, Nicole Whitacre, Kristin Chesemore, and Janelle Bradshaw, understand these pressures and offer hope from God’s Word to women who truly desire to glorify God with every use of their time. These authors present five key practices to help women see that they really can do all that God has called them to do—finding joy, peace, and rest in the one who has designed every season of their lives.

"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 DeMoss Wolgemuth, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts
