 What the readers are saying:

“I don’t think I’ve ever cried while editing until I edited this book. Encouraging, inspiring, convicting…a must-read for every wife and mother! I was so, so blessed while editing. It’s like the Lord put it in my lap because He knew I needed the message. ”

 -Erin Odom, editor and blogger, The Humbled Homemaker

 “The Heart of Simplicity is an inspirational and encouraging book that will help moms to get their focus right. Each of the writers brings a wealth of words of wisdom that caused me to do serious contemplation and to top it off they added study questions! It would be good to read with a group of moms. Applying all the knowledge and wisdom in this book will change your family’s life.”

 –Kim Brenneman, mother of 9 and author of Large Family Logistics

  5. Wow! Looks wonderful! Will get my copy tonight! Had to smile when I read the chapter titles. Many of them reflect the articles that I've written for FAR Above Rubies over the last few months! "Surrendering", "Spending Time Wisely","Hospitality" and more:) LOVE IT! Great topics for women today!

  6. Any possibility of getting a few copies in book format for those with no printers or have the worst of luck with computer crashes / viruses?
    :) It sounds like a lovely book and would go great with the other homemaking / Godly womanhood books on my shelves. :)

    Blessings from Texas!

  7. I was so excited when I read about this book, it looks wonderful! But I'm always so disappointed when its an ebook, I hate to read books online. Are you going to publish it so we can purchase a hard copy?

  8. Dear Dawn and Kyle,

    Yes, we did talk about making it available as a hardcopy in the future. When I hear more news I will announce it here at the blog and on Facebook!
