Loving My Actual Life

Loving My Actual Life
By Alexandra Kuykendall
Baker Books, 2016. 224 pgs. Nonfiction

Alexandra is a mother of four, looking for balance in her life, just like all of us. She decides to spend nine months focusing on ways that she can love her actual life, not the idealized version of her dreams. Working on one specific thing each month, she strives to find ways to more fully enjoy the season of life she is in.

I found this book reminiscent of Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project with more of a Christian slant. Filled with Bible verses and quotes from religious leaders, this book gives the reader many things to ponder as they evaluate their own lives. I listened to this eAudiobook from Overdrive and enjoyed the conversational feel of this book. While I'm not a mother balancing the needs of a family, I still found many things to think about as I decide how to love my own actual life!
