    1. I didn't know what to expect when I got the book and saw how big it is (I like looong books)! ;) But I was very pleasantly surprised! The advice of a full length book is in here - without all the fluff! These gals give some wonderfully convicting advice. I found myself convicted several times of things that need to change in my home - and that God will give me the time for the things on HIS to do list! I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels overwhelmed - which isn't that all of us?!?

    2. Really good little book that is pithy and practical, yet founded in biblical truth. Managed to be challenging and specific about action points without being legalistic. Suitable for women in all seasons of life. Having read it in one sitting I'm going to go through it again with my notebook and write down the parts I want to focus on and use to change my life! Only criticism is that again the Mahaney family are of a fairly high economic status and often assume their readership can afford the sam [...]

    3. An enjoyable shot in the arm! Contains simple and helpful suggestions on redeeming the time. The chapters on listing life and relational priorities and taking action on those were inspiring.

    4. Shopping for Time is a wonderful book! The wisdom, grace, and guidance given in this book was and is so helpful to me. Reading this book gave me so much peace. Life doesn't need to be stressfulwe CAN do all that God wants us to do and not be overwhelmed or insanely busy. I'll share the last quote from the last main chapter:"In the end, our highest goal each day is not flawless execution of our plans or increased productivity. It's our relationship with God, walking in dependence upon Him through [...]

    5. Carolyn Mahaney and daughters challenge the way we spend our time and how it shows our priorities while offering perspective, tips, and strategies to accomplish what we're really here for.I'd reread this book a few times now, and benefited from each new read."Shopping for Time" does not simplify life to a 12 step guide towards the perfect existence. Instead, it explains five ideas to help the day fall into place and get what really matters DONE. Rise early, pursue Christ with Bible in hand, take [...]

    6. This is a thin little book; not even a half inch thick. But, it took me about two weeks to finish it. Shortly after I started reading, I told my husband, Jeffrey, "I am reading a book that I think will change my life." That's why reading it took so long. I had much to ponder. You might be wondering how I gave such an impacting book only four stars. Oh, I just couldn't give five stars to a book that isn't really well written. The content and instruction in this book is incredible. The writing is [...]

    7. Helpful advice for me, though nothing I haven't heard beforejust all together in one concise read. Challenged me about the importance of making a habit of waking up early to MAKE SURE quiet time happens. Would recommend if this is something you struggle with too.

    8. I read this book in one 2-hour sitting last night. The authors make a Biblical case for spending our time wisely and then offer very practical and useful suggestions on what that looks like, anchored in gospel-centered living. One suggestion that I took away from reading this book is to plan a personal retreat once or twice a year to withdraw and pray alone, seeking God's grace and wisdom to evaluate our priorities, to see where changes need to happen, and then to create a specific strategy for [...]

    9. This is a solid book that did a great job of dealing with an important practical area -- one in which I happen to be very weak.It's all about time management, and the GirlTalk girls do a wonderful job of making this often intimidating subject approachable and simple. They use the analogy of smart shopping (planning your day, prioritizing, etc.) to "shop" for time -- basically, if you are wise in allocating your resources, you'll ultimately get more bang for your buck.Carolyn Mahaney and her daug [...]

    10. This book is currently being offered free on amazon for kindle/kindle for iphone/itouch readers for the month of September. I love free things, and have been interested in reading this book for awhile, which made it an obvious choice. :)There are parts of the book that make me cringe a bit on account of it being too conservative for my tastes. The book applies more for mothers and those with families than those in the single stage of their lives, though they do try to make an effort to appeal/ai [...]

    11. This was a great book!First of all it was a quick read which made it feel like you were accomplishing something!Second it was filled with challenges and easy to apply application. Not too deep, but not shallow by any means!This book was to my life what a frappaccino is to my energy level in the afternoon hours! A pick-me-up for my time management that crossed over into my time with God, time with family, time with friends, and how to balance them all.Have 2 hours of time? Invest them in this gre [...]

    12. i give this book five stars - for those who don't follow the girltalk blog (girltalks). unfortunately, since i check it every day and am already familiar with its content, i felt like i spent $12 to re-read it in paperback form - and at 90 pages with large font, it only took me an hour! if you're interested in maximizing your time and finding some strategic ways to do just that, this is a good read. you can also check their (free) blog, with handy-dandy archives already organized for your perusi [...]

    13. Almost a year ago, my mom had a free night at a hotel in the area. My mom, sister, and I headed out for a night of monk episodes :) and we went through this book. It is a great book because it helped me to understand how much planning makes your day better! When I say better, I mean that when you have a plan of what you are doing, there is less opportunity to waste your day away. They also reminded me of how important it is to spend time in the Bible at the beginning of the day. I highly recomme [...]

    14. I didn't read this book when it first came out, even though I've loved Carolyn Mahaney's other books, because I didn't think I needed to read *another* time-management book. I'm glad I decided to pick it up! It's a fantastic little book definitely NOT your run-of-the-mill time management book! It is short and to the pointless than 100 pages. I read it in one afternoon. It was very convicting and motivating for me. Highly recommendedeven if you've read every other time management book out there!

    15. The book that inspired me to buy a diary.A friend recommended me this book; said it had been exactly what she needed and helped her to get her days and life heading in the right direction. An interesting enough read, very quick, and some good no-nonsense principles.This book does stick to principles alone, and I tend to like a little more practical discussion, but inspiring stuff, and I'm certainly trying to carry out the rise early and plan your day commands.

    16. Make choices based on Scripture; Plan ahead; Evaluate in terms of Scripture. If we do not do our Scripture reading, we are being self-sufficient.What do these verses reveal about God?What do I learn about myself in relation to God from these verses?Priorities*grow in godliness* love my family* serve in the church*fellowship with Christians*evangelize non-Christians*attend to my work*care for my physical healthI wish I had listened to this book more when I read it.

    17. Carolyn Mahaney did it again: wrote a book that addresses real issues in a biblical, practical way. Testimony can be found throughout. I really like her approach. It's not a superwoman manual, but a realisitic look at prioritizing, scheduling, and choosing the things you spend your life on, for time is life after all.

    18. A concise book on time management with practical advise on prioritizing. I wasn't wowed by the content, but it was a fresh reminder to put the principles I know into practice. I read this with an accountability group and we have continued to encourage one another to spend time at Jesus' feet each morning.

    19. I cannot recommend this book enough for any woman feeling overwhelmed by the demands on her time--whether you're a single career gal or a stay-at-home mother of five or anywhere in between. Learn how to prioritize in a lasting way. This book helped change my entire attitude on calendars, schedules, mornings, and what they all really mean.

    20. The main points are organized into short chapters, written to be understood and put into practice. Not only was this book logical but also practical. The ideas were hopeful enough to be encouraging, not so far-reaching to invite failure. Most of all, it is inspiring to see daily life as a way to express Christian living to the smallest of decisions.

    21. I learned a lot from this short book. It offers a lot of practical advice about using your time wisely and serving the Lord. It was really short and easy to get through. One of it's tips is waking up early (5 am!)--I modified this for me (childless, jobless) to 6:30 (eventually 6)! It might look like a flaky book but really, it's not.

    22. The women's ministries team at my church used this book as the basis for this year's Ladies' Day Away. From it we learned how to find the best deals (experiences, etc.) for each season of life we go through. I came away from the Ladies' Day and from reading this book with a wealth of information and tips to apply to my daily life. I highly recommend this book.

    23. If you are overwhelmed, this book is for you! Practical ways to evaluate your priorities and commitments in light of God's plan for you. This is a book that I will read over and over -- probably every fall when I need to "get back on track" after the summer!

    24. Wow. Although it was an easy, quick read, it left me so convicted about my relationship with Jesus and consequently my family. It spurred me on to strive for consistency in "quiet times" and to be less selfish with regards to time/family. I highly recommend it.

    25. Life changing -- to do more and to submit more to God for the many many demands in life. I love the section it talks about how we should plan our day, our week, our year prioritize relationships, etc. A very short book but quite powerful!

    26. I love books on scheduling and really like how this book is not about scheduling every hour but looking at your life during each season or year to set scheduling goals. I thought it was very practical as an overall guide to scheduling and making right priorities.

    27. A little book filled with helpful suggestions on making each day & season of life a day that matches God's standards & meeting your values & priorities.

    28. Learned some things - the personal retreat chapter was the best for me. Mostly this was a good reminder and certainly encouraging.
