Publisher's Description

What If You Could . . . •get all your work done by 6:00 p.m.? •eat dinner with your family every night? •form deep, satisfying relationships? •naturally blend the world of church with your everyday life? •spend hours a week on your hobbies? You can! Real Simplicity reveals how to make all of these things a reality. Not by working faster or having more gadgets, but by simply choosing a lifestyle of conversation and community over a lifestyle of accumulation. The Frazees’ practical, motivating insights call you back to the kind of relationships and life rhythms you were created to enjoy. In Real Simplicity, Rozanne and Randy show you how—and why it’s so important—to balance work and play, establish healthy boundaries, deal with children’s activities and homework, bring Jesus to your neighbors, and build authentic bonds with a circle of close friends. Share these insights with those around you and help usher in an amazing transformation: your life and the lives of others blooming, in the midst of the chaos and fragmentation of today’s culture, into communities of purpose and peace.

    Our lives are complicated, busy, frustrating. Our children are over-whelmed with adult-organized activities and exhausted from over-scheduled lives. Families hardly know each other and neighbors don't know each other. Something needs to be done_but what?

    Randy and Rozanne Frazee have some ideas that just might change your life. Their book, Real Simplicity deals with these and other problems head-on and offers up some good (and sometimes rather radical) suggestions. Most of their ideas revolve around these points: be more family and neighborhood focused, be less involved in overly expensive structured activities, be more involved with each other, rest more, enjoy the simple things; their more radical idea also involves resting_at the right time. You will have to read it to find out more (it's interesting though and might work quite well for some).

    Packed with great ideas, enjoyable stories and delicious sounding recipes, Real Simplicity is a worthwhile read for families who have traded peace and simplicity for busyness and stuff.

    Though written by a Pastor, sadly there is little of the Gospel presented within its pages.

    DISCLAIMER: I was provided with a copy of this book by Zondervan for purposes of review. I was not required to give a positive review, only a fair and honest one. My opinions are my own.

    After being transformed by Lorilee Craker's "Money Secrets of the Amish", I couldn't wait to be inspired further along the road to the simple and fulfilling Life. So I was thrilled at the chance to review "Real Simplicity: Making Room for Life," by Rozanne and Randy Frazee.

    I have to admit, I was sorely disappointed for the first half of the book. Whereas "Amish" painted the picture of a lifestyle I couldn't wait to embrace, the authors of "Real Simplicity" employed a textbook-like style to teach me why I should accept their proposal. The Frazees' quoted facts and studies didn't inspire me to want to pursue simple living in the way "Amish" did. Thus, only my obligation to write a review compelled me to continue reading.

    Well, I am certainly glad that I did press forward. Once the authors were done trying to sell their plan, it actually began to sell itself. In the latter part of the book, as the Frazees presented the everyday aspects of their simple lifestyle, I began to feel enthralled by the vision, much like I had been with "Amish". I have come away with 3 positive changes I will make in my life, and there's not a lot more one can ask from a single book! So, while it didn't knock my socks off like "Amish", "Simplicity" was certainly well worth the read, and will go down on my list of life-changers.

    I received this book free from Zondervan for the purpose of providing my honest review. I was not required to give a positive review.

    As a family therapist, this book will be used to share the stressors that are facing Christian families today. Excellent ideas that will challenge the reader to approach church, work, family time and all the other "busi-ness" we have ourselves in now.
