    "Applies More to SAHMs"

    While there were many useful tips, I needed advice directed more at juggling the responsibilities of self, work, and family.

    "So applicable!"

    This book was a lifesaver in a time that I was too overwhelmed to actually read the book. I looked forward to a piece of advice every time I put my headphones on. I feel much more managed and relaxed in myself and my daily routine. Must take a few minutes of your crazy day to listen to this one if you want to end the book with a not so crazy life!

    "The Honest, Noncondemning Approach to Homemaking I Needed"

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book - it's honest, noncondemning, reality-based, and grace-based advice. I have it in hardcover and am so glad I got to listen to it as well. For me, listening provided the comfort, the "you're not alone in this struggle and it's okay," that is helping me to get beyond my fear of failure as a homemaker and offer myself grace to take it one step at a time. I have mixed feelings about the author reading this book. While it helped it feel more like a conversation, at times I wished there was more variation. Thank you, Crystal Paine, for this book!

    "Perfect book for a beginner"

    I really enjoyed this book. I am at a very hectic point in my life. Trying to figure out how to destress, be a wife a mom and a working professional. Crystal's wisdom and insight is so profound yet simple to apply. I see a more positive brighter and better future for my family and I.

    "Fan of Crystal Paine"

    I love Crystal and her testimony and have been a frequent visitor if her site for years. I really enjoyed this book! There were several inspiring lines I wrote down as inspiration to get or keep my act together and on tract! The only problem I had with this book was the recording. It sounded echoey and at one point I heard what sounded like someone kicking a file cabinet. Just be prepared for that. But it is a book almost all women could garner something from! Worth a listen ladies.

    "More story than a tool."
    What disappointed you about Say Goodbye to Survival Mode?

    Rhythm and novelle style.
    More appropriate for women than for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe if narrated by man will provide more rhythm to this audio book.
