If you haven't yet read this I strongly urge you to. I promise it will challenge and change the way you think, or at least it has for me. Below is the description from Amazon:
Even before I started reading "7" I had some convictions rise up. You see we moved in Novemeber and seeing the sum total of our life packed up in what seemed like endless boxes that filled a mid sized moving van proved to be a bit overwhelming.
After unpacking my books (and if you know me well you know that is more than one box) I said to Aaron "I am not buying another book until after I read every single book I currently have whether it be in print or on my kindle." And I'm pleased to report it's been six weeks and while tempted I have not bought a new book in that time.
But as I was reading through the book, particularly chapter 2 on clothes, this thought kept running through my head: "I have more than enough clothes to last a year without buying a single new item." At first it just seemed a thought but as I dove into the book further and further it was as if Christ kept saying, "well what are you going to do about all this?"
So here it is, my response to "7" is this - from now until December 31, 2013 I will not purchase a new item of clothing for myself and shop only out of my own closet for one year. Aaron thinks I'm partly crazy and he's also probably a little
Writing this in print makes it that much more real and there's no backing out now. So you my friends, I pray and ask you hold me accountable as I'm excited to see what unfolds this next year as I embark on my living with less journey!
