    The Beautiful Balance
    By Michelle Wilson
    Whether in your family, your ward, or your community, you've observed them: those noble individuals who are strong, patient, and stalwart in the face of adversity. When times are tough, how do they manage the challenging shift from victim to victor? Chances are they have figured out the balance of control—what they have charge of and what is in the Lord's hands. Trying to manage the ups and downs of life can feel overwhelming, but fortunately we're not alone on this journey. With inspiring doctrinal insights and a healthy dose of humor, author Michelle Wilson inspires readers to let go of fear and find peace, even in the midst of lost jobs, health challenges, or everyday chaos at home. In a world that seems so tempestuous, The Beautiful Balance is a sweet reminder of exactly what we can control—ourselves—and what God controls—all the rest.

    This was a very inspirational book most people can benefit from! Michelle Wilson discusses the importance of realizing proper balance in our lives. There are many things we cannot control but there are four basic ones we can. It is crucial to obtaining a feeling of positive, well-being to decipher which ones we can control and which situations we must trust for God to be in charge of. The first part of the book offers examples and ways to control what we can in our lives. The second part encourages us to trust God and ways to accomplish this.   The book is a quick read, written with the perfect balance of example and inspirational counsel. It never drags. The reader will feel motivated to find this balance in His/her own life. This is written primarily for an LDS audience but many Christians will truly benefit from it as well. *I received this book as a gift and am in no way obligated to offer a positive review..

    Reading this book was a really good reminder for me that I can't control really anything but myself. I have a tendency to expect perfection from everything and everybody around me and that's something about myself that I really need to work on being better at not doing. I loved this book. I love Michelle Wilson's writing style. She includes plenty of personal anecdotes and her takes on scripture stories. I love that she is able to write about difficult subjects like this and not sound overly preachy. I loved that there was a chapter in which she wrote about 3 amazing women and their life stories. These inspirational women are amazing at remembering just who is in control of their...and each one of our lives. That is Heavenly Father. He loves us, He wants what is best for us and he knows that if we have all the control we are not going to get what we need to grow and develop in the way that we should. Make sure you set aside some time to read this great book and think about how you too can achieve The Beautiful Balance that Michelle teaches us about. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
