Abundant Simplicity: Discovering the Unhurried Rhythms of Grace Paperback – April 28, 2011
Enhance your purchase
Which activities give you energy and connect you with God? Do you know what behaviors are life-draining for you, separating you from God? Simplicity is about choosing the engaging, relational life we were meant to live. It means shedding obligation and pretension. It means spending
in ways that help us become clear-headed. It means being intentional about what we do and how we live. These choices allow God's power to move through us and bless others as we have space to do good. In each chapter Jan Johnson provides small experiments with simplicity as well as questions for discussion or reflection to get you started. Come and discover the unhurried rhythms of grace.
Frequently bought together
"Abundant Simplicity is more than a primer on simplicity. It is a lesson in humility and a reminder of who we are as Friends."-- Ellen Michaud, Friends Journal, November 2011
"Johnson's easy writing style and highly practical approach to everyday problems, paired with her obvious depth of relationship with God and the fact that she practices what she preaches, make this book a worthwhile read. I heartily recommend it to those considering simplifying their life, but it also a good read for those ready to reevaluate their commitment to simplicity and to take some new steps into God?s abundance."-- Christine Sine, PRISM, July 2011
"Johnson's firm yet inviting counsel should arrive as a welcome change to the prevailing tone of much contemporary popular spirituality; recommended for Christian individuals and church groups."-- Graham Christian, Library Journal, May 1, 2011
"Abundant Simplicity is a quiet yet powerful resource for all who desire to make space in their lives for more of God."-- Elaine Raxon, CBA Retailers + Resources, June 2011
"Jan Johnson's Abundant Simplicity opens up an inviting spiritual path with clear explanations, rich references to a long Christian spiritual tradition, searching exercises in self-examination and piercing questions. Her vivid style and depth of perception help us to practice authentic simplicity and gain the abundant blessings of doing so. All under the power of God's grace."-- Emilie Griffin, author of Souls in Full Sail
