Penny Wise-Windy City Neighbors by Neta and Dave Jackson

I read this book in one night because I was caught up in the story line about the Jasper Family and how the book was going to end.

I haven't read anything by this author and although this is book 3 in the Neighborhood Windy City series, it could also be read as a stand alone book.

The Jasper family is a family of 5 who are Godly, kind and overly busy! Throughout the book the mom struggles with every day balance and trying to get things done for her family, work, and church responsibilities.

It was a good reminder for me to not be so busy and  that I need to prioritize my own life before my two boys get older. Just reading about Mrs Jasper's daily schedule made me anxious! LOL.

Some events towards the end of the book help Mr. and Mrs. Jasper prioritize their life and recognize God's help in their lives and struggles. I really enjoyed reading this book and will be making a trip to my local library to find more books by this author.

You can read about this book and series here:

About the book: Penny Wiseintroduces us to yet another family in "the neighborhood"---the Jaspers, busy with demanding jobs, busy with church, busy volunteering, parents of three active teenagers, juggling sometimes crazy schedules. All good things. Until all those "good things" feed into a series of crises that affects the whole family. Something's gotta change!

The third in the Windy City Neighbors series, Penny Wise is a contemporary peek at an urban family wrestling with the spiritual and practical challenges of real life. The series employs the innovating storytelling technique of "parallel novels," each with its own drama and story arc, but whose characters' lives become intertwined with their neighbors and affect one another. Welcome to Beecham Street---a typical, isolated American neighborhood that is beginning to come out of its shell . . . for better or worse.
