Real Simplicity by Rozanne and Randy Frazee
So many people are seeking to simplify their lives—and this book is written to assist them. The theme of this book is to simplify our lives by simplifying relationships with people—family members, neighbors, and others we come into contact with. Another area this book advises on how to simplify is time/time management.
It’s kind of hard for me to write a review of this book from a personal point of view. Quite honestly, we are a rural-living, homeschooling family, my husband walks to work—we are not really the type of people this book was written for. This book was written for urban/suburban families who are involved in a lot of out-of-the-home activities, a lot of “after school” sports and other activities for their children, overextended time-wise. Having said this, though, I do believe that these principles/ideas are helpful to those living that ultra-busy life. It’s an easy book to read, with lots of personal examples and anecdotes (and a few recipes too!) It is kind of a self-help type book, there’s not very much Scripture given to validate the suggestions.
I do know many families who would do well to read this book and apply its suggestions. It is a valuable book for those who are in that overly busy place in their lives. I would certainly suggest this book.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher, Zondervan, for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
