The Rewards of Simplicity - A review

The Rewards of Simplicity
A Practical and Spiritual Approach
By Pam and Chuck D. Pierce

This book is described as a guide to simplifying life from a Christian perspective.  The authors discuss how to clear mental, physical and spiritual clutter from our lives and reclaim our peace.  Their key premise is that “Every aspect of simplicity can be viewed from these three perspectives: faith, focus and function.”

As a veteran reader of many organizing/simplifying books, I can honestly say this book doesn’t break much new ground.  While it does remind us to make faith-based decisions as we de-clutter, there are no real “aha” moments.  For those seeking a biblical basis for decisions on slowing down and eliminating the unnecessary, this is good book.  For those looking for a to-do list for simplifying, not so much.

(This book was provided to me for review by Bethany House Publishers.)
