I was so excited to get to read and review Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine! I have been a follower of Crystal's blog, www.moneysavingmom.com, and had read and reviewed her first book a couple of years ago. Aside from the colorful and catchy looking cover, the title completely drew me in. I was feeling a bit worn-out and overwhelmed with my life and was totally in survival mode. And I didn't like it one bit. It's not a good feeling to feel as if your life is whirling out of control and you don't know how to stop it or where to begin. Crystal has been there too and she shares in her newest book how to take back control of your life once again...and actually enjoy it!
Each chapter in her book focuses on a goal to achieve as well as practical advice on how to achieve it. From getting on track financially to getting more sleep, the author shares her experience in that area and how she was able to overcome obstacles in that area. From cover to cover the author guides us step-by-step to a less chaotic life...the life God created us to live! She urges us not to live a life that is overwhelming and out of control in several areas, but to live a life on purpose, with a passion for living it!
This book was a very easy read. I was greatly encouraged and motivated to make changes in my own life and putting her tips into practice. I really enjoyed the various quotes she used throughout the book and I was also excited to see an extra section in the book for additional resources. I have added several of her recommended books to my to-read list! If you are feeling down and discouraged about your life right now, this book would be a great read for you!
