Life Management for Busy Women by Elizabeth George

Life Management for Busy Women: Living Out God’s Plan with Passion and Purpose by Elizabeth George 

For my birthday this year, I had a long list of books on my wishlist, so here is my review of one that I enjoyed!
Elizabeth George makes life simple by listing seven major areas of a woman’s life and then going into detail about God’s guidelines for managing them. These areas are: your spiritual life; your physical life; your home life; your financial life; your social life; your mental life; and your ministry life.

Reading the book it was amazing to see how although Elizabeth has separated this areas of a woman’s life, it is quickly obvious how overlapping they really are. I really enjoyed the fact that the first area that she covered the spiritual life first. Without this vital area of life being managed, there is no hope that any of the others will work as well as they can! 

Elizabeth writes the book as a true Titus 2 older woman! She is not criticising, but doing her best to offer what help and encouragement she can, having started her married life as a non-Christian with skewed priorities, she has made managing her life a priority and wants to help others to manage their life under God’s guidelines!

Real life examples from Elizabeth’s life or others she has known help to make this book very practical, and one that could be read more than once in a lifetime to keep one on track. With the busy-ness of life it is easy to lose sight of the most important priorities, but yet we are accountable to God for how we live our lives!

"the key to life management... is doing God's work God's way!"

But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31
