Help with our Resolutions January 3, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — erikaivory @ 2:44 am

Okay time for another book review:) I have to admit with all the crazy holiday fun and busyness I haven’t finished it, but I am going to because it is a really funny book. It is called Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight. As I have mentioned before I love a good old self-help book and one that can make you laugh! Wow! So I am thoroughly enjoying it!

Here is an amazon link from which you can order it:

And below you can also find a summary, bio, etc. Enjoy and I hope with all the New Year’s Resolutions before us, if you need a bit of motivation this is a good one to pick up:)

Summary: Every woman longs for change in some area of her life. Unfortunately, fear, fatigue, adversity, heartbreak, past failures, and even the choices of other people get in the way and make lasting change seem out of reach. Having been there herself, Karen Linamen knows exactly how to take readers from where they are to where they want to be.

In Only Nuns Change Habits Overnight, she examines 52 powerful actions readers can apply to any change they long to embrace. Her insights apply to career, finances, personal health and fitness, relationships, faith—in fact, every facet of a woman’s life.

Blending laugh-out-loud humor and sage advice, Linamen shows readers the link between dissatisfaction and transformation, how to remodel habits, the little-known truth about procrastination, how to generate the energy they need to pursue the life they desire, how to benefit from options and resources they never dreamed they had, and much, much more!

Author Bio:

Karen Linamen is a popular speaker and the celebrated author of ten books for women, including Due to Rising Energy Costs the Light at the End of the Tunnel Has Been Turned Off and Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt. She has been featured on more than one hundred radio programs, including FamilyLife Today. Publishers Weekly describes her as “funny, forthright and unforgettable.” Linamen lives with her family in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Visit her website at
