Mennonite Book on enjoying without all the materialism in today\'s world.
4 out of 5. Really enjoyed this book on simple living from a Mennonite Christian's point of view.
By the author of the More-with-Less Cookbook. The subtitle is "a pattern for living with less and a wealth of practical suggestions from the worldwide experiences of Mennonites". Los of inspiration and good practical ideas for simple living.
Practical suggestions on money, clothing, housekeeping, transportation, etc. to simplify your life . . .
By the author of the More-with-Less Cookbook, this is a wealth of practical suggestions from the experiences of Mennonites world-wide. Recommended reading for everyone interested in social justice.
This book is a classic with practical suggestions on money, clothing, homes, homekeeping, transportation and travel, celebrations,recreation, eating together and strenghtening each other etc.
This is a great book that helps us begin to shape our imaginations away from consumption and toward creative and always practical ways of living more lightly on the earth and on our pocketbooks. Seriously, this book is far more practical and helpful than any of the new trendy "how to be green" types of books out there on the market. The author collected tips from folks who have lived all over the world, gaining advise from global cultures about ways to bring our levels of consumerism down to something reasonable enough that the whole planet might be able to enjoy a decent and sustainable quality of life.
