This is a wonderful pick-me-up book! Each day is very encouraging and motivational! I'm so glad I was made aware of it so I could begin reading it. Also, it's so great for someone, like myself, who suffers from anxiety and depression to receive an uplifting message each and every day! I highly recommend this book.

Who doesn't seek simplicity in their life in this day and age? Sarah Ban Breathnach brings this "breath" of fresh air to us everyday with this devotional spanning 365 days. It doesn't relate to a specific year so each day you read a fresh thought to revel in for the day. It is nice to be able to reference the devotion each year and measure the changes from year to year. Obviously some devotionals may not apply to your life that day or that year, but it may not be about you but someone you love. I found it a source to share in encouraging friends, family and folks in need. You can easily copy the text because they are short and mail it to friends far away. I found I am blessed by a card or letter from a friend incredulous over how I knew they needed that message. It is a God thing. Let this be your greatest daily tool to bring about so much in so many. Words make a great deal of difference. Say something nice to a stranger and see how they brighten up. Sarah is doing the same thing for us in this book.

Book Description
Initially published in November 1995 with little fanfare, SIMPLE ABUNDANCEa daily inspirational guide written for women who wish to live by their own lightssoon found its audience through word-of-mouth raves, including one from Oprah Winfrey, who called it life-changing. USA TODAY cited SIMPLE ABUNDANCE as one of the top 10 bestselling books of the nineties, and it was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years. Now, to commemorate a decade of helping women around the world discover what matters most to them, SIMPLE ABUNDANCE has been reissued in a special 10th anniversary edition, which includes a brand new introduction by Sarah as well as completely revised and updated monthly suggestions for Joyful Simplicities.

Story thoughts for an entire year. Sarah Breathnach suggests way to simplify in an effort to bring more joy into one's life. But it doesn't insist on simplifying to fine joy. When this book was first published it offered a fresh, new approach and was widely talked about.

A whole year of thought provoking reading. Little articles concise enough that you can read one a day while having morning coffee and one a night before you go to sleep. Invaluable book!

This book will probably always be a part of my private collection. Every day's entry has something meaty to share. Each message is short, but packed with some really good thoughts. Rarely do I find one that doesn't pertain to my life in some way.

This is one of the best books I've encountered for increasing the spirituality--not necessarily religion--and the joy in your life. I highly recommend it. If I hadn't found this in a thrift store I wouldn't be posting it. It's one I will always keep on hand.

This is a pristine, leatherette edition of this well-known book. It would make a nice gift to someone (probably a woman) who has yet to come across a copy.

This book has a green leathertype cover......not the pink one pictured. A great book with daily readings on how to keep life simple but full of comfort and joy. A great daily read for women.
