My baby is due here very soon! My book baby, that is.
This one is near and dear to my heart. In its pages are so many lessons I am still learning about how to make this simple life a real thing. There are so many things I have learned thus far as my family and I took some tentative steps towards living the simplicity I think so many of us crave.
This book is more less a journal of my learning as took those steps. It is a real time, chronological documenting of the thoughts and feelings that went into the experience of moving from our "Big House" to our current lovingly named, "Little House."
I kept all the goodies - even the stuff I wish I could un-admit I thought or felt as I transitioned our life to another level of simple. My hope is that it will encourage and inspire some of you who are desperate for simplicity. I want you to trust that if I, my three boys, my home-loving husband and all our crazy can do it, so can you.
I want you to believe that you have what you need to make the big decisions and say the big "no's" and the bigger "yeses".
I want for it to be a practical guide, with lots of tips and already learned stuff you can take my word for as you make your own big changes.
My prayer is that you will read it, and feel you have a friend and sister who wanted the same thing you crave. I want that to motivate you to giving up stuff you need to, embracing the right things, letting go of the hindering things and finding confidence in the focus we so much need.
Right now, Lord willing, I will get to share all the things starting on or near November 13th. It is available for pre-order now, right here. All orders from this little corner of the web will come with an autograph and a prayer that you will find encouragement and inspiration in its pages.
I am realizing more now than ever, so many of these heart-deep lessons are rooted in the promises I learned to embrace during the Everything You Need Bible study. If you are really ready to give over to a life that is fully supplied, you might want to grab that one too. It's even on sale!
I can't wait to see what you add to and feel empowered to do with this book ...do, let me know!
