About Sarah Ban Breathnach
A writer of remarkable wisdom, warmth and compassion, Sarah Ban Breathnach’s (pronounced “Bon Brannock”) has become a trusted voice to women around the world. Sarah is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy and the creator of The Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude. Sarah’s work celebrates quiet joys, simple pleasures, and well-spent moments. By reminding us to search for the small and the sweet in our daily round with appreciation and awe, we find the beauty in the everyday. Now Sarah has revised, refreshed and created a newly updated edition of Simple Abundance: 365 Days to a Balanced and Joyful Life (published Nov 2019) for a new generation of women with the same disarming candor, wit and wisdom that has made hers a trusted voice and compassionate confidant for millions of women of all ages around the world. And recently Sarah introduced the magic of gratitude to little children and their families in her debut children’s book, The Best Part of The Day, a delightful and reassuring journey through the seasons.
Simple Abundance topped the New York Times Best Sellers list for over two years (at #1 for one of them), has been translated into 28 languages and has sold over five million copies in the US alone. Never out of print, it attracts new fans weekly to its two signature concepts which are now part of the American zeitgeist and vernacular--the "Gratitude Journal" and the "Authentic Self". With its irresistible blend of the sassy and the profound, the original Simple Abundance was a blog of sorts, before there ever was one. Simple Abundance's intimate daily format inspired serenity and joy one sentence at a time. It's no wonder it became a international publishing phenomenon, with women buying multiple copies as gifts for the other women in their lives. Deepak Chopra described Sarah Ban Breathnach “a one-woman women’s movement…just the subversively cosmic voice society needs” to help America “re-evaluate our values…” Sarah's gentle, reassuring inspirational classic is needed now more than ever, as we recover our lives from the global pandemic and rediscover the sacred in our ordinary. Sarah lives in Southern California near her daughter Kate's family, including her cherished first grandchild, Ruby Vera, the best part of every day.
