Jump Off The Hormone Swing

Lorraine Pintus, probably known best for co-authoring Intimate Issues, has penned a new book that women should RUN (not walk) and get their hands on.  

If you’re having menstrual periods, I promise you, you NEED this book!   Moms and daughters can read it together because Jump Off The Hormone Swing covers issues from puberty to menopause.   Linda offers practical explanations and advice for the hormonal issues that most all women deal with.  While she does touch on the medical aspects of our ever-changing bodies, she explains everything very clearly and in a manner that is down to earth.  This book is easy to understand, easy to relate to and hilarious at times!  Lorraine writes as if she’s sitting right there with the reader, having a “girlfriend” conversation.

I appreciated Lorraine’s honesty in this book.  Writing very openly from her own experiences with PMS, menopause and hormonal mood swings, I could relate to so much of what she shared in this book.  Lorraine writes about the physical, mental and spiritual sides of hormonal issues and offers physical, mental and spiritual advice on how to sail through the choppy waters of raging hormones.  She talks about what worked for her and what didn’t, and what she wished she had done differently during the tumultuous years of mood swings.

Lorraine is very direct in this book and hits head on the issue of using PMS and other hormonal fluctuations as an excuse to sin.  She points out that we cannot allow our flesh to dominate and rule us even though we’re feeling lousy.  I really like that she writes about the importance of God’s Word in our life and how we can fight the enemy’s tactics and not be ruled by our hormones.  I felt very encouraged and empowered after reading Jump Off The Hormone Swing.   It is SO helpful to know that you are not alone in this “war” of emotions and hormones and Lorraine validates women of all ages with this new book.  Lorraine also includes a 10-week study in the back of this book, which is good for either individuals or groups. 

Each chapter of the study has a video to go along with it that you can access on Lorraine’s website for free.  Thank you Lorraine, for FINALLY “going there” and talking about a subject that many people try to sweep under the rug.

Disclosure of Material Connection:
I received this book free from Moody Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

From The Publisher:
In Jump Off the Hormone Swing, Lorraine Pintus shares openly about the inner tension a woman can feel at certain times of the month between wanting to love her neighbor on one hand, and wanting to strangle her and shoot her ugly dog on the other. While many books discuss the physical and emotional symptoms of hormones, this is the first to explore in depth the spiritual aspects. Jump! is a mentoring book, not a medical book. The focus is on attitude, not anatomy. Lorraine shares insights from her own journey as well as wisdom from 1,500 women she surveyed. Sound biblical wisdom is laced with humor because after all, when it comes to hormones, you either have to laugh or cry, and laughing is better!
