In Jump Off the Hormone Swing, Lorraine Pintus shares openly about the inner tension a woman can feel at certain times of the month between wanting to love her neighbor on one hand, and wanting to strangle her and shoot her ugly dog on the other. While many books discuss the physical and emotional symptoms of hormones, this is the first to explore in depth the spiritual aspects. Jump! is a mentoring book, not a medical book. The focus is on attitude, not anatomy. Lorraine shares insights from her own journey as well as wisdom from 1,500 women she surveyed. Sound biblical wisdom is laced with humor because after all, when it comes to hormones, you either have to laugh or cry, and laughing is better!

"Love the prayers, the transparency and the humor in this book. I've dog-eared pages, used it as a coaching tool for my clients, and devoured it for my own purposes. I'm planning to do the Bible Study with my clients. Thank you for this invaluable resource."
Ginny Edwards, complete health make-over coach
"When I read the opening chapter title, "Confessions of a PMS – Crazed Saint," I thought, PMS and Saint should never be put into the same sentence—they don't belong together! But as I read the book, I was relieved to find that I wasn't alone in my battles to fight the demons that come with my monthly cycle, and that the hated time of the month could, instead, be a blessing from God. This book is an incredible encouragement to those of us who feel like failures and horrible women when it comes to PMS. Thank you for reminding me that even when my hormones are out of control, God is still in control!"
Melinda Hughes, who can now put PMS and Saint in the same sentence!
"As a follower of Jesus, mother and sufferer of EXTREME PMS, I most adamantly recommend this book for women of all ages. Lorraine's insights, testimonials and practical wisdom helped relieve myself as well as my daughter, from the unnecessary PMS drama in our lives. Her wisdom, through the book and a few emails and phone calls, helped us approach PMS with a much more rational mind-set. I am forever grateful for her counsel."
