BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: 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.


I enjoy reading inspirational books like this one by Michelle Wilson.  Somehow in the busyness of each day, it's easy to forget to seek balance.  I get too busy feeling guilty over one thing or another.  I fret over the next thing that needs to be done or that I didn't get done.  The Beautiful Balance takes a look at these thoughts and feelings as the author shares some of her own struggles and the stories of others who have struggled as well with finding balance and accepting the fact that there is much in each of our lives that we can't control.  But Wilson also points out something I've been thinking a lot about recently and that is accountability: stepping up and being responsible for our own actions and thoughts and choices.  By doing this and then turning the rest over to God, it's possible to find peace and beauty in our lives.  If you as a reader are looking for a book to help you find peace, to inspire you to focus on the things you can do something about, or a book to comfort you with stories of others like you, look no further.  This book fits that description to a tee.
