Today's the day! The release of Ruth Soukup's new book Living Well Spending Less!
Ruth delves into the heart of why we have become such a consumer-driven culture and the havoc it can wreak on our inner spiritual lives, our bank accounts, the chaotic cluttered state of our homes and in raising up the next generation. In a society that struggles mightily with debt and struggles to put away savings, Ruth's book is a timely guide to reconsidering why we're buying what we're buying and how to break a cycle of consumerism that can steal our peace and compromise our bottom lines.
I adore non-fiction that is both practical and well-written and Ruth's book certainly hits the mark. It's one thing to identify a problem. But Ruth goes beyond just identifying the money challenges. She succinctly provides practical steps for creating a new approach toward purchasing and saving, with support and tools all along the way. Ruth also intersperses QR codes throughout the book that will take you directly to web-rich experiences to set goals, find fellow sojourners and identify resources that can help rewrite how you view and practice stewardship over the resources you've been given.
We usually start off the New Year with a goal for our physical health...but what about our fiscal health? I'm excited to start the New Year with the help of Living Well Spending Less and put it in my tool kit of resources to help me reach resolutions for 2015. You can find Ruth's book at this link.
