Look around. We tweet while we drive, we talk while we text, and we surf the Internet until we fall asleep. We are essentially plugged in and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Rather than mastering technology, we have allowed technology to master us. We are an exhausted nation. No one has enough time, everyone feels stressed out, and our kids spend more hours staring at a screen each week than they do playing outside. It's time to simplify our lives, make faith and family the focal point, and recapture the lost art of simple living. Building on the basic principles of Amish life, Nancy Sleeth shows readers how making conscious choices to limit (and in some cases eliminate) technology's hold on our lives and getting back to basics can help us lead calmer, more focused, less harried lives that result in stronger, deeper relationships with our families, friends, and God., Homes: homes are simple, uncluttered, and clean; the outside reflects the inside -- Technology: technology serves as a tool and does not rule as a master -- Finances: saving more and spending less bring financial peace -- Nature: time spent in God's creation reveals the face of God -- Simplicity: small and local leads to simpler lives -- Service: service to others reduces loneliness and isolation -- Security: the only true security comes from God -- Community: knowing neighbors and supporting local businesses build community -- Families: family ties are lifelong: they change but never cease -- Faith: faith life and way of life are inseparable., Includes bibliographical references., Includes discussion questions., MWT11283283, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., REL012110SEL032000, RELIGION / Christian Life / Social Issues, RELIGION INSPIR, SELF-HELP / Spiritual, Sleeth, Nancy., The author looks to Amish lifestyle and values as a model on which to base calmer, more focused, more faithful lives., [United States]:Tyndale House Publishers Inc.,2012., computerc, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/tyn_9781414369372_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, pcc, text file, texttxt, xxii, 245 p. ;21 cm.
