'Tis a Gift to be Simple: Embracing the Freedom of Living with Less

'Tis a Gift to be Simple: Embracing the Freedom of Living with Less

Often we find ourselves busier than we want to be and buying more than we really need. We long for a more leisurely pace, a life less occupied with material possessions and with more time for our family, friends, and God. This book offers help for all of us who would like to make our lives less complicated but aren't sure how to begin. We are invited to look at our own lives and begin with the things that seem within our reach, knowing that the rewards will be great. As we slow down and create more breathing room for ourselves, we are better able to hear God speaking to us. Barbara DeGrote-Sorensen and David Allen Sorensen provide biblical and spiritual foundation for making changes that reflect God's priorities for our lives.
