It's time for another giveaway. This week it's a non-fiction title by best-selling author Joyce Meyer. All you need to do to enter your name to win this book is to post a comment telling me one thing you could do right now to simplify your life. Just one thing. Then you can tell me why you want to win this book. I will pick a winner next Sunday, which is Easter Sunday. And to be fair I will post my one thing first... I would quit my full-time job and work out of my home. That would simplify my life big time. But I'm afraid this side of heaven that's not gonna happen. Sigh.
From the Publisher
Many want a simple life, but find it difficult to actually live that way. They fight a constant battle to balance work, family, friends, and other demands on schedules stretched too thin.
Joyce Meyer breaks it down to the simple principle of exercising faith rather than doubt and confidence rather than people-pleasing. She writes from her experience of struggling to balance work, family, friends, and all the other demands on limited time to show readers the simple answer to a simpler life.
Joyce gives these and other practical and easy to implement ideas for finding real joy:
• Live to glorify God
• Let go of what lies behind
• Choose your battles
• Don't be afraid of what people think
• Trust God to change other people
• Live with margin
• Don't be so hard on yourself
• Stop doing things you don't do well
• Remember that God is for you.
Joyce reminds readers that the Bible is full of examples of God's provision and His instruction to focus on one day at a time. She encourages readers to set themselves free by realizing they don't have to do, fix, or manage everything. By embracing the fact that God is on their side they will be encouraged that He will help find a way to live a simple life.
