Book: The Heart of Simplicity: foundations for Christian homemaking
Format: PDF file, Kindle, Nook
Release date: May 30, 2012
I had the pleasure of being asked to join a project that I feel will benefit moms and homeschool families. I was asked to write a chapter for a new eBook coming out called The Heart of Simplicity. I wrote the chapter on homeschooling. The focus is on making life simpler and honoring to Christ. We tend to complicate matters and that leads to feelings of discontentment and overwhelmed hearts. Along with 12 other women, this book attempts to restore the simplicity so you can fulfill your calling and be joyful.
So what’s it about?
Today’s typical lifestyle is marked by busyness, consumerism, and stress. We, as women, often complain that there’s not enough time to “do it all.”
Do we suffer from a lack of time? No. We suffer from a lack of eternal perspective.
How we invest our time on earth will impact eternity in a million ways. Join over a dozen Christian women as we learn how to simplify our lives from the inside out and build homemaking foundations focused on Christ.
When we are faithful to focus on what is truly essential in our homemaking, we can build an eternal legacy . . . one simple day at a time.
