Say Goodbye to Survival Mode Online Summer Book Study

on June 5, 2014 by Jami Balmet 15 comments

This Spring, I started reading a book that has had a profound influence on my homemaking and my life. It has greatly impacted how I view responsibility, priorities, and managing my home. I decided that since this book is so packed full of practical exercises and hands on challenges, I needed to go through it slowly and with purpose. Will you join me this Summer as I work my way through: Say Goodbye to Survival Mode?

Calling the super busy, the stressed out, the overtired. Join this FREE online book study so you can say goodbye to survival mode!!

Starting next week on June 17th I will be going through a 10 week study on Say Goodbye to Survival Mode. Each week I will share on Tuesday and Thursday we will work through one chapter together. On Tuesday we will discuss the main idea behind each chapter and then on Thursday we will dive into and do the challenge for that chapter together.

About the Book

Calling the super busy, the stressed out, the overtired.

“You know you’re made for a more fulfilling life. With this book, you’ll know where to start.

You wake up tired. Your to-do list is too long. The commitments—and the laundry—are piling up, but your energy keeps dwindling. You feel like you’re simply making it through the days, not living or enjoying any part of them.

In Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, you’ll find both practical ideas and big-picture perspective that will inspire you to live life on purpose. As a wife, mother of three, and founder of the wildly successful blog MoneySavingMom.com, Crystal Paine has walked the road from barely surviving to living with intention. With the warmth and candor of a dear friend, she shares what she’s learned along the way, helping you:

  • feel healthier and more energetic by setting priorities and boundaries
  • eliminate stress with savvy management of your time, money, and home
  • get more done by setting realistic goals and embracing discipline
  • rediscover your passions—and the confidence to pursue them

Packed with straightforward solutions you’ll use today and inspirational stories you’ll remember for years, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode is a must for any woman who’s ever longed for the freedom to enjoy life, not just survive it.” – Amazon Description

Who is This Book Study For

The author, Crystal Paine is a stay at home Christian mommy blogger who runs Money Saving Mom. She wrote this book when she hit rock bottom trying to manage her home, her blog, her life, and kids. She felt completely overwhelmed and that she was just going from moment to moment – trying to survive.

I can tell you, I’ve felt that desperate survival mode many times in the last 17 months. My daily life with twin toddlers boys can be rough. I’ve felt so overwhelmed with dishes, laundry, diapers, making meals, cleaning up meals, wrangling my kids, and the 50 other things I have to do each day. It can all feel so overwhelming sometimes! 

If you have ever felt this desperation at trying to manage it all and feeling like you are barely treading water (or maybe you feel like you are drowning!!), then this book is for YOU! Even if you don’t go through it in this study, I highly recommend you get a copy of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode.
