Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight by Karen Scalf Linamen(AND GIVEAWAY)

***Leave a comment by January 5 at midnight to be entered to win a copy.***

Every woman longs for change in some area of her life. Unfortunately, fear, fatigue, adversity, heartbreak, past failures, and even the choices of other people get in the way and make lasting change seem out of reach. Having been there herself, Karen Linamen knows exactly how to take readers from where they are to where they want to be.

In Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight, she examines 52 powerful actions readers can apply to any change they long to embrace. Her insights apply to career, finances, personal health and fitness, relationships, faith—in fact, every facet of a woman’s life.

Blending laugh-out-loud humor and sage advice, Linamen shows readers the link between dissatisfaction and transformation, how to remodel habits, the little-known truth about procrastination, how to generate the energy they need to pursue the life they desire, how to benefit from options and resources they never dreamed they had, and much, much more!

My Review:
I am not finished reading yet. I keep stopping to think. For me this is not a book to sit and read all the way through in one sitting. There are questions at the end of each chapter to help prompt you on the questions to ask yourself.
