UNCOVER THE JOY IN LIFE

In a book as practical as it is wise, the acclaimed author of Growing in Faith shows us how taking small steps to simplify our lives can restore our sense of vitality and joy. The key is to realize that happiness has not vanished but has been buried under the clutter and stress of our harried lives that have left our bodies stressed and our spirits depleted.

Yount shows us that there is a better way that is simpler, relaxed, and vastly more rewarding physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The process takes some planning and motivation but little labor. In fact, a simpler life takes less effort because it clears away debris and allows us to concentrate our energy on the things that bring us happiness. Men and women who simplify their lives discover that their senses sharpen, that their health improves, and that they become more loving, compassionate, and more at peace with themselves.

The gift of simplicity is a limitless gift we can give ourselves again and again over a lifetime. Practical, inspiring, and profoundly illuminating, Spiritual Simplicity is an invitation to create a happiness uniquely your own.
