Product Description

It is said, "Less is more." What would happen if we spent less? Spoke less? Ate less? What is the purpose of fasting? What are the benefits of leading a simple life? This study guide explores the disciplines of simplicity and fasting—foreign ideas these days. Yet leading a simple life can help us focus on what's truly important. Fasting helps us feast on God. It clears our mind of clutter so that we can become hungry for the things that really matter. 6 studies with notes for leaders include sections: Turning Toward God, Hearing God Through the Word, and Transformation Exercises.

Publisher's Description

You may often hear it said—or maybe you say it yourself, "Less is more." But what does it really mean?
  • What would happen if you spent less?
  • Or spoke less?
  • What purpose is served by fasting?
  • What can you gain by living a more simple life?
In this study guide, Jan Johnson covers the disciplines of simplicity and fasting. Leading a simple life can help you focus on what is truly important. Fasting can help you learn to hunger for the things that really matter. Going deeper in these areas will help you live deliberately for God.

Editorial Reviews

"Jan Johnson gives realistic direction on what we can do to make connecting with God the basis of day to day existence. Such a relationship cannot be handed to us, but we can be led into it by someone who knows the way. She does. She opens a path on which anyone can actually and continuously grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ--anyone, no matter their background or circumstances."

    This book was an easy read but I did not get from it, the deeper understanding I was seeking as to the purpose of fasting and guidance in establishing a fast. In retrospect it really didn't promise what I was looking for so my mistake was in assuming it would.
