A nice short book, the subtitle ("how to do it all and NOT be overwhelmed") appealed to me. The message of this book is that God gives us time to do everything we should be doing. First we need to realise that there is a difference between what God has ordained for us to do and what we might want to do. Second, follow their five tips: get up early, have a quiet time, spend some time thinking about your priorities, evaluate relationships, and depend on God. I found the writing style jarred a little (I'm English, that could be why) but overall a reasonable book. I intend to follow their advice, but the shortcoming of all such books is that it's hard to put into practice. ( )

The women's ministries team at my church used this book as the basis for this year's Ladies' Day Away. From it we learned how to find the best deals (experiences, etc.) for each season of life we go through. I came away from the Ladies' Day and from reading this book with a wealth of information and tips to apply to my daily life.

I highly recommend this book. ( )

“There is no such thing as simply a busy month or a busy year. It’s a busy life, pure and simple…[But] we can actually do all that God has called us to do” (p. 13).

Sound far-fetched? Absolutely it does – it did to me! I’ve read stacks of books, just trying to learn what my schedule should look like, what my to-do list should look like…and on and on. Shopping For Time has been one of the simplest, most concise, and clearest helps in this process. “We wouldn’t dream of going to the grocery store without a shopping list, or buying a car without haggling over the sticker price, or purchasing new shoes without checking the price tag, but we throw away our time as if we had an endless supply” (17).

In a sweet, conversational style, the Mahaney girls paint with appropriately broad strokes a picture of a life that is joyfully submitted to God’s to-do list. This short (under 100 pages) book clearly, helpfully, and gently offers five tips on how to “shop for time,” and it recognizes some things that many other time management or “Godly woman” books barely touch on or miss altogether:

The authors explain that we need to rise early (remember, flexibility!), sit at Jesus’ feet, plan, consider the spheres in which God has placed us, and humbly recognize our dependence on God to be productive. The main thing this book has going for it is flexibility. What’s required to act wisely will look different across the spectrum of women who’re reading the book. What works for one won’t work for all in exactly the same way. There are different seasons in each life, and application of these principles will look different during each one. Managing time wisely for the glory of God isn’t something that can be done haphazardly. Your effort will depend on how complicated your life is, but there will be effort. Motivated rightly, though, our lives can be fruitful and joyful expressions of our love for the Savior and delight in serving Him.

“In the end, our highest goal each day is not flawless execution of our plans or increased productivity. It’s our relationship with God, walking in dependence upon Him throughout the day. …This book will help you become a wise shopper of time in every season of your life, so when you pass from time into eternity, you can know the intense and indescribable joy of our Savior’s pleasure and commendation” (90, 94).

I did it! I joined the 6 A.M. Club....and I don't go to bed until 11pm!
This book is short and to the point. It equipped me to get my schedule in order, which gives me more time to do things that are important and things I enjoy. It isn't another "How To" book because it teaches you WHY you do what you do. ( )
