Look! Nourished officially releases today! It's in all the major online bookstores: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ChristianBook.com. I know this is only my second book, but I'm especially fond of this one and also sort of terrified of it releasing into the hands of "real" readers. It's vulnerable, and personal, was sometimes painful to write. But it's me. It's my mom. It's the struggles women of all ages and stages face. It's the strength and more often the sense of humor it takes to be enough to everyone else and still be a fully nourished whole person with her own identity. I think it's good and I hope you like it too.
The book has five major sections, each broken further down into three chapters:
Nourished Spaces and Routines
Nourished Bodies, Nourished Selves
Since so many of us this time of year make goals regarding our bodies, I thought I'd share this excerpt I wrote in Chapter 7, At Home in Your Own Skin: Nourishing Self Acceptance on Pink Pants and putting our life on hold until we meet said goals.
What are the "pink pants" you're putting on hold?
