About the Author
Lisa Pennington is a homeschooling mom of nine who shares her life—one laundry load at a time—on her blog, The Pennington Point. She is a sought-after speaker at conferences and women’s groups and is the author of "Mama Needs a Do-Over." Lisa and her family live near San Antonio.
Lisa Pennington was truly inspired when she wrote her book Tightropes and Teeter-Totters: Finding Balance in the Ups and Downs of Life. As the title indicates, this book discusses how to find balance in life. Whether it is during the good times or the bad times. Pennington discusses different ways to find Balance by using acronyms—Begin; Assess; Learn; Account; Notify; Change; and Endure. These can be used in all aspects of life, including finding time for oneself, finding time as a couple, finding time as a mother, etc. Life can be rough, finding balance can be a key to unlocking true happiness. Readers will love Pennington’s down to earth writing, as well as feel a kinship with her as she shares personal examples to help inspire readers. I would recommend this book to mothers that are striving to find ways to better balance the many challenges in life.
