Best for new mothers

Although full of good advice, this book is best suited for new young mothers. Most of the information and stories have to do with juggling the responsibilities of motherhood with staying true to yourself. The narration is great, an easy listen and fun. Tons of reminders of a young woman’s self worth, which is really needed as young mothers become consumed with taking care of families.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Quality

I fully support the idea to have more fun in life is a wonderful thing. However, this book is a little shallow and kind of pushes a feminist agenda on scriptures that aren't really there. In one part of the book she describes her relationship with God like two fat people in a boat bumping into each other and laughing. because there is a spiritual element to this book, I feel like it trivializes God into a fun-loving friend that takes away a bit of his serious side. I thought it was fine to help people lighten up, but wasn't very theologically sound and was a little bit too trivial for me. If you like Eat Pray Love signs, you will probably like this.

Surprisingly great

This is the type of book that I would not normally finish. It’s the kind that I would put a bookmark in halfway through. Yet, in the face of that, I found myself reading and reading. It ended up being worth the trip in the end.

A must read for anyone

Don’t let the beautiful woman on a pink cover fool you-this book is for EVERYONE! I laughed so hard I peed, I cried so hard my husband questioned if I was ok. I enjoyed it from the first few minutes and couldn’t stop listening. Mandy’s stories are surprising, sometimes outrageous, funny, personal, heart warming & life-changing. Stop thinking about getting this book and just click buy. You won’t regret it. Start having more fun right now.
