When I was given the opportunity to read and review Nourished, I hesitated. While I love reading, I’m a very picky reader because my time to read is very limited. In the end, I decided I liked the title and what I had read about the book, so I read it and I am SO glad I did! This is definitely a MUST READ book!
Becky and Rachel are a mother and daughter writing team that make you feel like they are old friends. I really appreciated the honesty they both shared. It is never easy to admit our faults or have some one we love point them out, but because of that honesty, I really felt I could connect with what they were writing.
Becky and Rachel are from different age groups, in different phases of life, and handle things, like clutter, in different ways. Their differences make it easy for a wide variety of people to see themselves in them. Rachel is in her 30s, chasing an active little boy. Becky is in her 50s, enjoying her grandchildren. Rachel likes things organized and Becky is ok with things a little messy. Each one shares her journey with us to being happier, more organized, and accepting of who they are and what they look like!
My favorite section of the book is about clutter and how to tackle it. Right now I’m tackling the clutter in my house, along with just under 2,000 facebook friends, and I found Becky and Rachel’s stories of decluttering inspiring! I literally laughed out loud when I read “My goodness, I’ve kept those three M&Ms in the zipper pocket of my purse for two months, sure they were painkillers. Whaddaya know?” That was said by Becky, who at one point in the book references Erma Bombeck, one of my favorite authors. Becky, I think Erma would have loved you!
The book offers practical advice that both ladies are actually using, not just offering to readers. I really like the “$1500 secret”. Implementing just that one thing has made me a happier person. No, I can’t give away the secret, but it is written out in the book just waiting for you to read it.
Becky and Rachel take turns writing and their name is above the section they have written to make it easy to know who is saying what. The book really feels like a conversation. Becky and Rachel going back and forth and the readers along for the fun afternoon of visiting.
