I have been following Heather on Instagram and reading her blog for the past 2 years. She has been a light in my life and encouraging to me because she is around my age (a 30 something), runner, and mommy. Well, I’m not a mommy yet but she continues to encourage me in the fact that I can still do everything I love AND be a mom (in the future).
Heather recently wrote and short book and I have to admit I was so excited when she announced it on Instagram! I couldn’t wait for the release date to come and I quickly volunteered to get the word out for her.
I love how the book is titled, “The Average Girl’s Guide to Living an Above Average Life.” I hate the word average sometimes, I feel it dictates that we should all be the same and not excel to be better or excellent at the gifts that God has given us. Through out the book she is able to break down different areas of our lives, as women, that we feel we may need some fixing. This was a great book for me to read because as a wife/newlywed (been married a little over 1 year now), a woman in full-time ministry, a friend, daughter, runner, adventurer, puppy mommy, and blogger I really felt I need to straighten up some areas of my life. The book also was only 60 pages so I was able to zip through it on the plane to Cancun with the hubby.
I love how Heather put her own southern flair throughout the book and admitted that she doesn’t have it all together either but is a continued work in progress just like we all are. I have to admit I love her frequent use of “y’all” it made me feel like I was having a conversation with her over coffee. She is very relatable and if you are a woman who needs help trying to figure out how to put some pieces of your life back into order this book is a quick and easy way to get on track. Heather also summarizes each chapter at the end so you can easily reference back to highlight certain parts as reminders.
Thank you Heather for opening up and writing your thoughts down on paper. I am truly grateful for your wisdom and friendship (even though it is mostly through social media). If you would like to check out Heather’s Blog click Here.
