Seeking Simplicity -- A Woman's Guide to a Balanced Life

Bloomington, Indiana, UNITED STATES

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Dec. 4, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- "Seeking Simplicity: A Woman's Guide To A Balanced Life" (now available through 1stBooks Library), by Elizabeth Gregory, is written in a self-assessment and workbook type format to guide the reader through each area of her life: time use, activities, material possessions, finances, health, relationships and spirituality.

Once the reader understands what God is calling her to do, it becomes easier to let go of things that do not fit in with God's plan. This book allows each woman of God to eliminate activity and clutter that overwhelms so many women.

"Seeking Simplicity" is going against everything our popular culture teaches us. It is being courageous enough to say, "I don't have to have it all. Enough is enough!" Complexity is normal in life. Simplicity requires effort. Courage is needed to make the decision to enter into a relationship with God and evaluate life on your own terms, allow Him to set your priorities and decide what deems you a success. This book is written from a Christian viewpoint with scriptural references throughout.

The basic tenet is that if we seek first the kingdom of God, then He will make clear to us where we should be placing our time, talents, and energies. Knowing clearly what God is calling you to do, allows you to say "No" to unnecessary work and rid yourself of activities that clutter your life.
