I read the 1st edition of this book many years ago (when my life was much busier). Sprinkle also writes mysteries that I have enjoyed, so I decided to pick up this second edition (written in 2002). Written from a Christian perspective (Sprinkle was the wife of a pastor), I think it's one of the best books I have read on time management for women. She goes beyond simply giving tips to help you fit more in each day and helps you think about what you want to do and setting priorities, and talks abo ...more

I appreciated how practical this book was, but it was often so practical, it sometimes left God behind. I would say, read this book, take the practical applications, but instead of focusing on what YOU want for your life, first ask God, what he wants for your life and then use the practical in the book to help you focus on God's response. I suppose you can only say, "pray over your decisions" so much, but as someone who has a tendency to put "to-do" lists above God's plan and being flexible abou ...more

I had trouble getting through this book and almost put it down a few times because I so strongly disagreed with the author's assumptions, particularly about the workplace, financial information, and the parents relationship to their children. I felt that while the author was trying to provide good tips on time management, her style definitely did not appeal to me. I have had much better success with other time management books.

Literally changed my life. And that's not a phrase I use flippantly. As someone who has always been too busy to spend time on things that are important to me, I gained some very valuable Christian insights and truths from this book that completely changed my mindset on this whole issue. I am going to start weaving its truths into my life tapestry starting NOW. I highly recommend this to all Christian women!

The beginning is slow. I found the book to be full of ideas & tips. Even though some of them I've heard of before, she presented it in a new way.

One quote that spoke to me on pg 36. "Just think: The very traits you are trying to change in somebody may be what God will eventually use in their lives to build up the kingdom! Don't get in the way.

I read it for a book group at my church. I didn't get anything remarkable out of it. It was an easy read. Maybe if I were busier? The book group was fun, though.

Aka Patricia Houck Sprinkle.

When I met and married Bob, he looked over our budget and demanded, "Why don’t you write a mystery to pay for all the ones you buy?" I immediately knew I wanted to put a body in a building where I’d once worked. However, being over-endowed with the Protestant ethic, I wrote "important" things first and only wrote the mystery in my spare time, so my first mystery, Murder
