I loved this book! It came at very stressful point in my life and I needed the perspective to step back and simplify what my husband, my family, and I were doing. Each chapter is broken down into manageable actions and steps. I felt like it was a breath of fresh air to my overwhelmed lifestyle. The reflection questions were incredible and led to amazing discussions between my husband and I. Simplify helped us identify the areas we were not giving over to the Lord and helped us to see the changes we wanted to make in our lives to make more room for Him. This book even helped us make the very difficult decision to change jobs into something we felt better fit our family as a whole.
I found myself dog-earing every page and wanting to tell everyone all of the tidbits I had been learning. It is a very freeing read and I highly recommend Simplify to everyone! It covers topics that range from work to finances to forgiveness to peace to relationships to seasons of life and true satisfaction. Pastor Hybels writes in an engaging and straight-forwad way that makes you want to keep reading and learn more. My walk with Christ was deepened as a result of reading this book because it helped me to slow down and truly evaluate how I am using my time.
I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishers. These opinions are my own.
