Simplify: 106 Ways to Uncomplicate Your Life
About the Book
Do you find that while working to “have it all” you are busier than ever but experiencing less personal satisfaction? Despite all your efforts, is your “to-do” list beginning to look like a novel? Is your over-booked schedule interfering with or causing damage to the relationships you have with God and the most important people in your lives?
In SIMPLIFY: 106 Ways to Uncomplicate Your Life (Authentic 2007), author Paul Borthwick reveals how millions of people have become addicted to the seductive power of a fast-paced life. As a result, their lives are characterized not by happiness and satisfaction, but by chaos, scheduling conflicts and the inability to maintain meaningful relationships. In SIMPLIFY, Borthwick uses his wit and wisdom to bring into focus that, although everyone feels the demands caused by the limited resources of time and money, it is imperative that we find ways to build quiet, rest and simplicity into our lives if we want to experience the kind of joy and satisfaction in living that God has planned for us.
