Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness, and a Full Night's Sleep Book Review & Giveaway 2/17 US/CAN


Order-loving, thirty-something Rachel, and her laid-back, messy mother, Becky, are opposites in many ways. But they both believe that women long for a life that nourishes them inside and out. In this book, the mother-daughter duo will help you make that dream a reality by tackling the “Top 10 Stressors” that mess with a woman’s mind, such as:

•Cluttered Surroundings •Exhaustion of parenting
•Time-starved marriages •Feeling like a spiritual slacker
•Crowded Schedules •Negative Body Image

Following a series of trial-and-error experiments, Becky and Rachel share laugh-out-loud stories, fascinating research, and practical tips to design and a nourished life that fits your personality. By learning how to embrace “nourishing compromises,” you’ll never put happiness on hold again. If you are feeling drained, discontent, or discouraged, join a couple of understanding, entertaining companions on the journey from overwhelmed to nourished.

Becky Johnson is the author, coauthor, or collaborator of more than forty books. She’s a natural storyteller who has inspired and entertained audiences for years. Most recently she co-authored We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook alone with a blog by the same name with her daughter, Rachel Randolph. She and her husband, Greg, live in Denver, Colorado. Website/blog:

Rachel Randolph writes and speaks with humor and honesty about parenting a toddler, young married life, and her mostly plant-based cooking adventures. Rachel is married to Jared, a high school football and baseball coach. They live near Dallas, Texas with their son, Jackson. Nourished is her second book.


This is one of the books I've read that I totally connected with. I was able to relate about the close relationship of Becky and Rachel because they reminded of my relationship with my mom. I was also able to relate with the day to day experiences of being a stay-at-home mom and the ways and feelings on how I juggle my everyday schedule - add to that writing on my blog, doing the chores, cooking, de-cluttering and going to and from (2 ways) my daughter's school to bring her and pick her up.

I enjoyed reading this book because it tackles tips and ways on how to be fully happy and enjoy everyday life. It has the right amount of humor and reality with real situations (some or most of them I've already experienced) which also includes tips on how to face these challenges.
