Diffusing The Tension – Book Review

NEW Book Review! Thanks Diffusing the Tension for taking the time to read and review my newest book!

…This book answers the highly debated question: “What does it mean to be a woman?”

…I am really interested in gender politics and what my place is in 2020 as a woman, so this book was right up my alley. To be honest, when she contacted me for the review, I was skeptical when I read the title. I have very strong views about gender roles that I’m extremely passionate about (another topic for another day). So, I was worried that this book might not align with values that matter to me. I am so glad I was wrong!…

…I love the 6 truths she shares about being a woman. They really gave me a lot to think about.

Takeaway #1- You are more than your physical body
Takeaway #2- Life is a gift no matter what
Takeaway #3- Your purpose is to be happy
Takeaway #4- You can achieve your dreams!
Takeaway #5- If you want all good things, you have to ask!

…In short, I loved this book! I would sincerely recommend it to everyone who is looking to discover their purpose in a really challenging year.

A Day In The Life Of Mom – Boy Mom Stories

NEW Book Review! Thanks BoyMomStories for taking the time to read and review 🙂

…Recently I had the privilege of reading a fantastic book called Parenting Through The Eyes of Lollipops.

…When I first read the synopsis I was a little leery because it seemed so different to how we parent. With having 2 adopted children and 2 bio children that are all so different I wondered if I would be able to utilize the information that was going to be presented.

…I loved how the book helps you to shift the focus from being in charge to the realization that you and your child need to work together to ensure a healthy and happy family.

…The Harmonious Dance: Reading this made me think about that parenting is like a dance. In the book it shows how this Harmonious Dance is a entwined dance between physical and spiritual.

…It’s Never The Child: One sentence that stood out to me in this area is ”Having to make mom and dad feel good is a heavy weight to carry.” This section also helps you look at reasons why a child may misbehaves and realize its not just because they want it there are underlying causes.

…The Love Cycle of Parenthood: With having 2 teenagers and a preteen this pillar really hit home to me This section helps you explore each age and phase of raising your child. It speaks on important growth aspect of love and nourishing yourself and your child.

…I feel the book is an excellent resource to any parent. Even if your parenting style is not the same there are so many ideas that there is something that can be beneficial to anyone.

We are ONE heart beating and ONE love loving!

We are ONE heart beating and ONE love loving

Love, kindness, support, listening, understanding, personal evolution, willingness to learn and do better, and doing whatever it takes to be a good person is our responsibility.
It’s what we promised to do when we said yes to being alive, it’s what matters, it’s what heals, and it’s what life is all about—what we are all about.

…What it Means to BE a Woman is one of the most uplifting books I have owned. It is written for all women, whether they came in to the world as a woman or chose to be in later life.

…some of my favourite parts of the book:

Female Energy vs Masculine Energy: It is safe to say that this chapter changed my perception on feminism as a whole.

Why a Woman and not a Man? This was one of the chapters that has stuck with me the most since reading it.

You own two apartments – did you know that? This is my favourite chapter in the book.

Activate Yourself… Before reading this book, I never knew how much of my being I neglected.

Your trauma highlights what, exactly? One of the most beautiful ways I have looked at trauma in my life is because of what I read in this chapter.

Does your love want to spread or not? In this chapter, we are invited in meditation to feel complete love in our being.

…I would recommend this book to all the women in my life.

…I laughed at some things she said as if I were talking to a friend, and reflected on a lot of the rest.

Emma Newlyn Yoga – Bookreview!

Thanks Emma Newlyn Yoga for taking the time to read and review my newest book!

…If you’re anything like me, you may be a little resistant to a book that’s supposed to tell you ‘how to be a woman’, but in all honesty – couldn’t we all use guidance sometimes? In a world where we tend to primarily see the skinny, shiny, perfect and pouting versions of women, it’s refreshing to read a book that focuses on what’s actually happening on the inside, in the mind, soul and spirit of women.

….Jacqueline’s enthusiasm and excitement virtually jumps out of every page – so much so that I feel like I can actually hear her voice echoing; “We – women, men and everything in between – need to get out of our forgetful fog and into our remembering ways to recall who we really ARE and how everything really IS. We need to rewind back to the basics and the beginning where energy is all there is – equality is all there is!”…full of ways to work with it in order to feel empowered.

…If you’re not a woman, this is actually a really insightful book that shows just how much stress, pressure and trauma most women experience…

…take great inspiration from living life as a woman authentically and without fear.
