I've followed Jessica Turner since her BK [before kids] days I've loved watching her grow into the mom she is today! I've also enjoyed seeing her work really hard to carve out her niche on social media as she encourages other working moms to be their best selves - This is her second book and I know you'll love it as much as I do! She gives practical tips on how working moms can be there for their kids and family, carve out times for themselves, and still get it all done without going completely crazy! #stretchedtoothin

This new book by Jessica Turner is fantastic. I had access to the audio version as a part of the launch team and listened to it in just days. I honestly loved everything about this book and ordered 10 more copies on pre-order to give away as gifts to family, friends and teachers. The messages and ideas in the book are simple and yet profound. She uses stories from her own life and backs it up with statistical data to show working women how to find ways to lose the guilt and thrive in their work, home and personal life. Every working mom should read this book!

In "Stretched Too Thin," the author provides encouragement and motivation to working moms who feel overwhelmed by the demands of life. Each chapter looks at the different aspects (kids, marriage, friends, self-care, etc) that moms have to balance each day. The author provides examples from her own life, as well as reassurance and suggestions for ways to handle it all (which, she reminds us, sometimes means not handling something ourselves). She does not pretend that this book is a solution for being able to "do it all." She is very real and honest, and encourages moms to set realistic expectations about how much we can do with the schedule and resources we have. I found it to be very validating. Each chapter concludes with questions to help the reader personally apply the material they just read. These reflections allow the reader to process the information and set goals in her own life. I loved this practical application aspect. While the book was written for working moms, I would also suggest it to moms returning (or considering a return) to the workforce. It covers areas that someone may not consider when mentally preparing for that transition. I received an advance reader copy from the publisher.
