Peace and Plenty: Finding Your Path to Financial Serenity Giveaway!

PEACE AND PLENTY: Finding Your Path to Financial Serenity
By: Sarah Ban Breathnach

Thanks to Hachettebook, I am able to give away 3 copies to my readers! Continue reading to find out how to enter.

Description
"When money is plentiful, this is a man's world. When money is scarce, it is a woman's world." Unearthed in a 1932 Ladies Home Journal, this quote is the call to arms that begins PEACE AND PLENTY, Sarah Ban Breathnach's answer to the world's-- and her own personal-- financial crisis. As only Ban Breathnach can, she culls together this compendium of advice, deeply personal anecdotes, and excerpts from magazines, books, and newspapers-- particularly those of the Great Depression-- to inspire readers who are mired in today's financial difficulties.

Focusing on her own personal path, Sarah Ban Breathnach will relate never-before revealed details about how she fell from the financial top to the bottom. Readers will immediately see how deeply she understands the plight of those trying to maintain a happy and comfortable home, while at the same time not even knowing if they will be able to make the mortgage to keep that home.

Sarah has proved to be the voice of comfort for years to women who are spiritually bankrupt, and now she will reach to those who are financially strapped, showing them how to pull themselves out of their psychic and fiscal crises while providing deep comfort and reassurance throughout.

My Thoughts
I received Peace and Plenty yesterday, and I'm already 1/3 through the book. I originally wasn't sure about the book, as the front cover didn't peak my interest. The description of the book is what caught my attention, and got me to read past the first page! The book is inspirational, and quite comical at times. My favourite quote that got me hooked:

" When money is plentiful, this is a man's world. When money is scarce, it is a woman's world.When all else seems to have failed the woman's instinct comes in. She gets the job. That is the reason why in spite of all that happens, we continue to have a world.

Once more the job of managing the households is up to the women. To many the job seems utterly impossible. They find themselves working against strange, unseen forces that relentlessly destroy.

The old rules - the rules that were set to jazz by the stock sellers and the politicians - simply do now fit... Everyone has lost something in terms of money, and a few have lost everything. It makes no difference if the  income came from investments or from a job. For those who have lost everything, there is nothing but a fresh start needed."

- Ladies' Home Journal, October 1932... author's inspiration for the book!

  6. Hi Kimberly!

    I kinda stumbled on your blog through another blog and well.... frankly, I loved the name of your blog. That brought me here and then I saw the stuff about PCOS (I was diagnosed with it way back in the 80's) anxiety (had it now for the last 3-4 years) Plus, I now have all kinds of other health issues, possibly an autoimmune disorder and oh, yeah... I have 3 cats and I treat them like they're my babies. (just a wee bit obsessed)

    Sooooo, I thought we had a bit in common and that I'd enjoy following your blog. That's my story! I'd love it if you stopped by my blog sometime to say Hey! and maybe follow back?

    Peace,
    Martha from A Real Upstate NY Housewife
