Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness, and a Full Night's Sleep {A Flyby Productions Review & Giveaway}

About the authors:
Becky Johnson is the author, coauthor, or collaborator of more than forty books. She’s a natural storyteller who has inspired and entertained audiences for years. Most recently she co-authored We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook alone with a blog by the same name with her daughter, Rachel Randolph. She and her husband, Greg, live in Denver, Colorado. Website/blog: www.laughcrycook.com

Rachel Randolph writes and speaks with humor and honesty about parenting a toddler, young married life, and her mostly plant-based cooking adventures.

About the Book:
Order-loving, thirty-something Rachel, and her laid-back, messy mother, Becky, are opposites in many ways. But they both believe that women long for a life that nourishes them inside and out. In this book, the mother-daughter duo will help you make that dream a reality by tackling the “Top 10 Stressors” that mess with a woman’s mind, such as:
•Cluttered Surroundings
•Exhaustion of parenting
•Time-starved marriages
•Feeling like a spiritual slacker
•Crowded Schedules
•Negative Body Image
Following a series of trial-and-error experiments, Becky and Rachel share laugh-out-loud stories, fascinating research, and practical tips to design and a nourished life that fits your personality. By learning how to embrace “nourishing compromises,” you’ll never put happiness on hold again. If you are feeling drained, discontent, or discouraged, join a couple of understanding, entertaining companions on the journey from overwhelmed to nourished.
My Take Away:
This dynamic duo hit the nail on the head with this book!  I love how the topics discussed come from both points of view. Although, I have raised small children, I am no longer in that season of life, but the fact that this book is co-authored in such a manner touches all types of women! I love that!
We as women tend to pile so much on our plates, and then we stress out about the piles on our plate! This humorous, challenging and touching book will lift your spirits and give you a new perspective on things.
I believe women of all ages will love and appreciate the helpful tips and Godly wisdom contained in the pages of this timeless book. It is wonderfully written with a beautiful balance between the challenges of a young working mother, and a more seasoned woman/mother.
I have no doubt that somewhere between the discussion of "negative self-talk" to "learning to love your jiggly bits," you will identify to the stories and be able to relate to the heart and message of this wonderful book. You will find yourself, laughing through tears as their message of hope rings true in your hearts. Although this book is not designed or written as a self-help book, you may find yourself viewing it as such. The authenticity and vulnerability that is shared between these pages is helpful to anyone reading it!
