"The author has done a great job of including so many things in this book to help us. This book is a great resource to have for such times like these. Georgia has given us many more things to think about and learn. I'm going to try her recipe for dish soap and we plan to implement a compost pile. I think she is right when we get back to the simple ways of doing things we get closer to what God intended for us all." - Other Retailer's Review.

"I liked the idea of the book, hints about how to make your life simpler. Some of the hints you will read about are ones you have heard many times. Other hints come from the Amish lifestyle. Although most of the book was helpful some of the ideas just aren't practical. I will say that I enjoyed reading this book. The author is engaging in her writing style. It is an organized book and if you are interested in the Amish community and ways their lifestyle can help you simplifier yours, you will enjoy this book." - Other Retailer's Review.
