Item Description...
The ideas in Busy but Balanced are for the people who need them the most-those of us out in the world putting our longings, goals, and ideas into action and balancing that with creating a nourishing home and deeply connecting with our children.It's not about giving up desire but, instead, creating a right relationship with all aspects of ourselves and our world.Rather than breathlessly grasping at the shards of our lives, we can boldly and calmly expand to embrace all aspects of it-alert and relaxed.A mother of two young children expressed what many of us feel:"I want a simple life; I want a busy life.I don't want it cluttered with junk, but I want it vibrant.My relationship is with my family, and I want that at the core of my life; but I also want meaningful work. My family is forever so I want that to thrive, but I want the day in and day out at work to be good too."Fear of change locks many of us into rote living-treadmill days.Busy but Balanced, a practical and inspirational guide, will help you take action month by month, manage change, even invite it in, to create a full life lived with no regrets.Making choices allows you to live sanely with more joy, energy, and success-without sacrifice. ---From the IntroductionAUTHORBIO: Mimi Doe is the author of the award-winning Ten Principles for Spiritual Parenting and Drawing Angels Near, and she inspires thousands of parents across the country each year with her personalized workshops and a popular on-line newsletter.

Love It! Makes my Life Sane!  Nov 4, 2004
So as the mother of twins life is never dull...This book, which I read each morning, keeps things balanced for sure. I love the ideas and inspiration.
 
Mimi Doe is an inspiration.  Dec 11, 2003
Mrs. Doe is such an inspiration. She is my second mother, and I love her!
Even more so, she is such an amazing author. She continues to inspire my life and my familial relationship through her writing.
Thank you Mrs. Doe.

EVERYONE BUY THIS BOOK.

It will change your life.

 
tons of great advice  Sep 18, 2003
Mimi Doe writes with clarity and grace about what we as parents should be doing but don't always make time for. She organizes the book by months and seasons and gently guides us through the maze of parenting. The tips are not only useful but inspiring as well since they are all doable if we make time for them.

Parents should keep this guide right by their bed and refer to it on a daily basis to keep their lives balanced and to be a strong force in their kids' lives as well. While reading this book, I wanted to go hug my daughter and say sweet things to my baby son. Must reading for parents with kids of all ages.

 
Mimi helps little miracles happen.  May 25, 2002
This book pushes past the "yes, but's" so gently, it doesn't hurt a bit. Fresh perspectives about how to interpret what is going on and practical suggestions about things to do (and not do), make this a virtual parent's handbook for sanity.

As a psychotherapist and author (Embracing Fear, HarperSanFrancisco 2002) I have made good use of two contrasting metaphors for parenting that have always made sense to me. One is that children are clay and parents sculptors, assigned the job of molding the clay into what they believe is best. The other metaphor is that children are seeds, and parents gardeners, with the job of caring for the enviornment surrounding the seeds so that they can grow into whatever they are meant to be. Mimi Doe is a master gardener with a wonderful ability to teach other gardeners.

 
Readable and rewarding!  May 23, 2002
I found this book to be extremely easy to read, especially in my "busy" life. The chapters are broken into months but can be read at any time. The ideas are explicit and concise and realistic. Mimi writes with the knowledge that readers will pull ideas from her book that will work for each family individually. There is no "must do" chastising in Ms. Doe's work, simply suggestions for things that will help every busy person feel more balanced about family life and taking control of what may feel like an out-of-control situation. Definitely worth the time!
