Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Jill and Mark Savage share real tips for real families facing downsizing or those simply trying to live well while putting their families first. Popular speaker, author, and Hearts at Home founder Jill Savage and her husband, Mark, have been tackling these questions for the past twenty-one years. They share their experiences in Living With Less So Your Family Has More, honestly evaluating the impact of a single-income family from both perspectives. This timely resource offers both vision and specific, practical strategies that any family can use. The Savages, writing together, look at the attitude adjustments that couples need to have to successfully live on a limited income. They then balance those attitudes with practical actions that help families live the life they long for. Sprinkled throughout are true stories from real families who have used Jill and Mark's techniques for living richly.

Book description

Our culture believes that bigger is better, but Jill and Mark Savage believe that being satisfied with less materially can allow you to give your family more -- emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. Jill and Mark Savage, a husband and wife team who have made it on less than society says they need for more than twenty years, lay out a three-step plan for investing in the things that really matter.

First, they help you identify a long-term vision for your family, and then they show you the attitudes that you will need to adopt to make that vision a reality. They then share practical action steps to help you make small and big changes -- from organising coupons more effectively to changing a career path or transitioning to a smaller home. Whether your goal is allowing both parents to cut back work hours and stress, making it financially feasible for one parent to stay home full-time, or simply carving out more time in the day for family, this book will help you get there. Sprinkled with true stories from families who have used Jill and Mark's techniques for living richly, the Savages' honest, straightforward, in-the-trenches approach will inspire and encourage you to live well while still putting your family first.
