REVIEW:
This book is such a useful tool for people who want to learn how to have work-family balance. These tips that Tricia gives the reader are geared to mom's who raise children and work from home, however, these tips can be used by anyone, male or female. These are just guidelines you can try, to see what works and what doesn't work for you. Your days will not always go as smoothly as planned, and some of the tips shared in this book help you to manage through those times with more ease.
Having faith in God, yourself and your loved ones helps, as long as you believe it does. This book helped me to realize that not every day will go right or even meet the expectations you may have, but with faith, patience and love, you can get through anything.
I definitely think this book is beneficial to anyone who is need of balance and works from home. The book has great tips and resources to figure out what your balance is and how to implement it.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
