Last Day for Overwhelmed December Bonuses

Last Day for Overwhelmed December Bonuses

24 hours.

That’s how long the marketing experts told us to offer the special pre-order bonuses for Overwhelmed, our new book that officially releases on January 1.

“You have to create a sense of urgency! Otherwise, nobody will buy.”

We almost did what the experts said. We almost ran a high-pressure, TODAY ONLY, Cyber-Monday special.

But at the last minute, we changed our minds.


Well, for one thing, we knew that the last thing our readers needed was us pushing a our “sense of urgency” on them. (If there’s anything overwhelmed women already live with 24/7, it’s a sense of urgency!)

But more than anything, we had a feeling that our readers are just the kind of women to prove the experts wrong.

So, we said “no” to 24 hours of pressure tactics and “yes” to two full weeks of sharing the love, instead.

Your response?

You proved the experts wrong!

We’ve been totally blown away, in the best possible way.

A Gentle Reminder

In just over 24 hours, the December pre-order bonuses will expire. For each and every copy of Overwhelmed you pre-order, you get:

About Overwhelmed

Feeling overwhelmed? Wondering if it’s possible to move from “out of my mind” to “in control” when you’ve got too many projects on your plate and too much mess in your relationships?

Kathi and Cheri want to show you five surprising reasons why you become stressed, why social media solutions don’t often work, and how you can finally create a plan that works for you. As you identify your underlying hurts, uncover hope, and embrace practical healing, you’ll understand how to…

  • trade the to-do list that controls you for a calendar that allows space in your life
  • decide whose feedback to forget and whose input to invite
  • replace fear of the future with peace in the present

You can simplify and savor your life—guilt free! Clutter, tasks, and relationships may overwhelm you now, but God can help you overcome with grace.
