The 500 Hats of a Modern-Day Woman (Book Review)

cover graphic for The 500 Hats of a Modern-Day WomanBalance. Juggling multiple roles. The never-ending rat race.

The list of duties and responsibilites – the hats I wear on a daily basis – seems to get longer by the day.  Sometimes it seems as though I simply can’t do it. I can’t go on one day longer. I can’t homeschool my kids. I can’t be maid+chauffeur+cook+laundress+business woman+church pianist+…

Joyce Ellis has been in my shoes. And she has been in your shoes. See, being a woman automatically means wearing an outrageous number of hats. There’s simply no escaping that fact.

Written with warmth, empathy, and humor, 500 Hats takes you to the mirror and helps you examine the various hats you have to wear. This is no quick and shallow examination, though. By the end of the book, you’ll most likely have discovered how to wear several of your hats more gracefully and with less stress. And, as you know, less stress is something for which nearly every woman seeks!

I really enjoyed the questions and discussion section at the end of each chapter as well as the points to ponder. I think this would be a lot of fun to study with a group of close friends or some other type of small group.
