I’ve been following Joshua Becker at Becoming Minimalist for some time now. I love “simple” and “beautiful,” so what he writes speaks to my values.
The book is geared to teens and young adults (though it really hit home with this 55 year old). It’s designed to encourage them to start their lives off with a simplicity that the gospel urges. It is a lovely treatise on Christian values and how a simpler lifestyle can make that meaningful, abundant life that God talks about so much easier to find and walk in.
If you have children or friends in this age bracket, please encourage them to buy a copy.
Personally I’m getting a copy for my household. My husband still has not grown up (which is actually a good thing … though, perhaps you should not tell him I said so because he tends to take that as license to listen to some truly weird music) and my 21 year old son will surely benefit from this thoughtful and encouraging book.
(You get two quotes today because I just couldn’t decide between the two.)
Invest in knowing God, your family, your friends, or the causes that you believe in. And as you do, you’ll notice that your heart naturally begins to be drawn to them more and more. Joshua Becker
