If I Am What I Eat, Does That Make Me a Donut?

That's the title of a chapter in Mary Byers' delightful new book, The S.O.S. for PMS.

Here's a peek at the book:
Have you noticed changes in your positive attitude every month? Do you become short-tempered and more demanding? Are you worried that your shifting emotions negatively affect your children?

For years Mary Byers struggled with dramatic mood swings and other confusing symptoms. When she finally realized a pattern, understanding came: PMS.

In The S.O.S. for PMS, Practical Help and Relief for Moms, author Mary Byers offers hope, help, and relief as she shares what she's researched, discovered and tested. Along with plenty of encouragement, you'll find:

  • specific symptoms and their causes
  • foods and activities to avoid or indulge in to minimize PMS
  • ways to ease the PMS impact on your kids
  • how to enlist help from your husband and friends when PMS strikes (without ripping off their heads)
Mary Byers is a professional speaker and writer whose passion for transforming lives is evident in every project she takes on. In her first book with Harvest House Publishers, The Mother Load: How to Meet Your Own Needs While Caring for Your Family, Byers teaches women how to take care of themselves so that they can nurture a happy, healthy family. 

The mother of two lively children, she offers down-to-earth suggestions, spiritual truths, and real-life advice on how to juggle family responsibilities while creating a balanced life through supportive friendships, stress-relieving laughter, regular exercise, rejuvenating solitude, and an intimate relationship with the Lord. Byers and her husband, Stuart, reside in Illinois with their two children.
