Book Review: Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit

It is pretty obvious I like Karen Horneffer-Ginter’s book Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit. I have already referenced her in these three posts:

I Carefully Selected My Word For 2013

My Love Hate Relationship With Lists

How to Regain Balance.

I also have twenty-two more passages marked to put further thought to.

So, why do I like it?

Partly it is timing. The sub-title of the book is Nourishing the Soul When Life’s Just Too Much. I have a part time government job, two businesses of my own, and a large old house that requires constant tender loving care. Add to that attempting to stick to a gluten-free and dairy-free diet, and keeping my body fit, and yes, sometimes Life’s Just Too Much.

My word for 2013 is Pampering, and Karen’s book not only explores how I can pamper myself, but more importantly why I need to slow down and pamper myself.

The other reason why I really enjoyed this book is Karen is funny. In places, laugh out loud funny. Most of the time I was laughing at her … or more accurately with her about her.  As an author, business owner, and mother, Karen is no stranger to a thirsty spirit, and she shares her moments of ‘physician heal thyself” with the grace of humour.

If you are busy with busyness, Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit shares compassionate stories of how other people slowed down, and practical action steps on how to slow down yourself.

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for providing this book for review.
