I am, as Joyce wrote, "a brave man" who read this book, and I am glad I did! My "Martha attitude" was the cause of so many problems, and not just for myself. I challenge you to ask the man who has lost his family what he would do differently if he had a chance - undoubtedly, he would say 'spend more time WITH them'. God instituted the principle of rest, to not stop once in a while is sin. We were not created to bring people to Christ - He can get that done on His own - we were created to glorify God, & we do that by loving Him & others, & enjoying both with joy & laughter. Joyce does not teach gluttony or excess, in fact, her examples are often of "little things" that cost little, if anything. I urge you, the prospective reader, to simply get the book & let the Lord Jesus Christ give you what He will from it.
