Podcast #54 // Jessica Turner from The Fringe Hours

When Jessica contacted me about her new book, The Fringe Hours, I knew I had to interview her for the podcast. This book speaks to everything I’m all about. I used to feel guilty for taking any time for myself, my own interests, and my own development.

But now I see how time for me only makes me a better person, mom, wife, and friend. For me, it’s not at all selfish. It’s imperative. And like Jessica, I steal hours here and there – sometimes hours that nobody notices and sometimes hours that I need to arrange – to ensure that I get time that fuels me up inside.

But this book isn’t just for moms or even moms of young kids. When I read this book, I thought about my mother and my good friend, both of whom lead lives that look completely different from mine, yet I know both of these women would benefit from this book.

Another thing I love about this book and Jessica are the various ways to connect with Jessica, the book, and others reading the book. Check out these links for more information:
