Balancing It All By Candace Cameron Bure

How do you do it all?”
That’s the question that wife, mom, actress, and best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure is often asked. And it’s a question that women everywhere are asking themselves as we seek to balance all of our roles, responsibilities, and opportunities.

So, how do we do it? Working since the age of 5, Candace has been in a balancing act for nearly her entire life. She is the first to tell you that there is no miracle formula for perfect execution in every area of your life, but there definitely are some lessons to be learned, lessons that come to life in Candace's story.

Come along and dig into Candace’s story from her start in commercials, the balance-necessitating years on Full House, to adding on the roles of wife and mom while also returning to Hollywood. Insightful, funny, and poignant, Candace’s story will help you balance it all.

Candace Cameron Bure first became known to millions as a co-star on the hit ABC television series Full House. Today, like her brother Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains, Fireproof), she is the rare Hollywood actor who is outspoken about her Christian faith and how it helps overcome certain obstacles, like her struggle with food addiction.
Bure's healthy lifestyle has been featured in US Weekly and People magazines as well as national talk shows including The View and NBC's Today. In Reshaping It All, she continues the story, inspiring women to embrace a healthier lifestyle by moving faith to the forefront, making wise choices, and finding their worth in the eyes of God. Candace shares a candid account of her struggle with food and ultimately her healthy outlook on weight despite the toothpick-thin expectations of Hollywood.

I don't even know how to write a review for this book. It was fantastic and I will reread it again.
Candace has it all together and her spiritual life is one to be very proud of. She is the type of person that you want for a mentor for your daughter.
Candace's first priority is her faith and her walk with God. This book is a fantastic reminder that that is how it should be. You can be wife, mother, sister and friend and still put God first, Candace tells you how she does that every day. She lets you know that she is not perfect but she gives it her all. She gives you great verses in the Bible to read and keep in mind each day, in this book as well.
I think that this book is a book all women and young ladies should get a copy of and start reading today.
I for one will always have a copy of this book on my book shelf.
I gave this book 5 stars two times.
I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I was given this book as a birthday gift!
