Cortney’s book is the perfect reading material for any mom. It is packed full of bite sized nuggets that are thought provoking and game changing. It is ornanized in a way that you can take in just a few bits and turn around and change your whole day or maaaybe your whole life. I recommend it to all busy moms who don’t have time to get cozy with “chapter books”!
