enjoy true abundance!
"This is the book I wanted to write, but was too busy simplifying my life. I laughed out loud and am provoked to action. Well done, Joanne."

Story Behind the Book
"Simplicity is not just about cooking a month’s worth of meals in one day or learning how to speed clean your kitchen," says Joanne Heim. "Women long for a better quality of life, but we wonder just how to get it. In Living Simply , I ponder what it takes to slow down and downsize while living in a culture that supersizes everything from french fries to SUVs. I want more meaning and less stuff, and simplicity is a means to a better quality of life. Choosing this isn’t about turning my back on the world or lowering my expectations, but about making wise choices and finding the abundant life promised by Jesus."
