Book Give-Away ... Biblical Minimalism



Today, I am promoting and giving away a new book, called Biblical Minimalism, by Cheryl Smith.

In the book, my friend, Cheryl is very transparent about the journey God has taken her and her family on in reducing the material things they own. She is honest about the struggles of giving up things, yet also points out the great rewards of doing so. Rewards like having more time, energy and joy since her family is no longer weighed down by so many things to care for.

Cheryl writes in a conversational style, somewhat like you are sitting and chatting with her. Parts of the book may "step on toes" as we can give excuses of why we can't do this or that, but even those areas can lead us to think and evaluate. She shares related Scriptures and principles as she goes through the book. It is a book worth reading!

  1. This sounds like such a profitable book. It's been so easy for me to accumulate and become attached to things. They can truly become burdensome. A discussion of minimalism from a biblical perspective is much needed. ~Talya

  5. I'd love to read this book! This is a topic I've been drawn to, but would prefer a biblical perspective because sometimes it can be associated with new age thought and other philosophies that ignore or deny our need for Christ. How wonderful that God has led someone to explore this need for many of us to simplify and focus more on the things that matter! I need the help and would love to read her thoughts!

    1. I think you would be blessed by what Cheryl says in her book. I agree the New Age thinking has promoted much of the minimalism, yet God started it. :) What a blessing to benefit from the experiences and study that have led to this book happening. Thank you for visiting.
