Hott Review:

Mama Needs a Do-Over is a must-have book!

As a reader, I have an aversion to non-fiction. I want to like them, I just generally don’t. Mama Needs a Do-Over was just the opposite for me!

Lisa Pennington is an amazing writer with a great sense of humor. She reminds us with these simple mother-to-mother words how to overcome ourselves and live the fulfilled life God has intended for us. We’re given quick and easy tips to get to the bottom of our daily challenges to overcome and be the conquerors God intended instead of victims.
