    This is a fabulous little book full of wisdom and humor When Joanne Kraft took her family on a radical break from all things extra curricular, she had no idea she d be influencing so many While reading her story, and that of her family, I knew my soul was chewing on some good stuff Her words strengthened me, they made me cry, and they made me laugh lots And while the meat of her book is robust, it s the approachable voice and care with which she delivers her experience that keeps you turning the pages I fell in love with her family and with her heart and I know readers all over will too Read it Your soul will thank you.

    Although the target audience seems to be moms with older kids, I loved every page of this book Joanne Kraft shares about her family s struggles and triumphs centering on their one year radical sabbatical from activity I saw myself in many of her descriptions and am grateful for the perspective before we reach the school,sports, and everything else phase Each chapter had great reflection questions to apply to my life I read it quickly, but can also see myself returning someday to study one chapter at a time and let it soak in I would recommend this book to any mom who has felt the tug of busyness start to pull too hard.

    Great practical book offering busy families the option of choosing differently than expected I met this author at a retreat and was so inspired by the idea of taking a year off of running around, however I discovered that most of my running is for my special needs children and their medical needs, something from which I am unable to take a sabbatical.

    This is a book that I read in one day, it had me laughing and even sometimes wanting to cry but I found it to be wonderfully enlightening on our culture today that says we must go, go, go and do,do, do That being said we are a busy family, thanks to my mom my son takes martial arts twice a week, my oldest is in dance once a week as is my other daughter and all go to Awana and they are all in 4H once a month as well Some would say, whew For us it doesn t feel busy, I guess since we homeschool we don t have to compete with school sports, homework, etc so we have hours than a family who has to have a strict bed time and awake time My children do these activities because they want to, not because they are forced and they are early enough in the day that we are all home by 6 30 or 7 at the latest That said there are still things that rob our time and that is what I thought was great about this book.She has great ideas for family devotions how many times have you thought I m too busy to do devotions or I m too busy to have a set prayer time , and how to deal with other time thieves like Facebook, computers, game consoles, T.V., etc it doesn t have to be just about sports, dance, and other extra curriculars anything that makes one too busy to attend to your family One thing I took issue with was when she was writing about the Enemy AKA Satan and how to have an abundant life and she mentions Ask a person who is morbidly obese what he or she would pay for self control page 89 not everyone who is obese, morbidly or otherwise, lacks self control my husband and I are both obese even with portion control, carb counting, cutting out soda, etc we still can t lose the weight.Overall, this book was fantastic and it really has me motivated to cut back and start doing in fact just last night my oldest told me I spend too much time on the computer she didn t want to hear the fact that she spends way too much time on her iPod, but I digress so it seems it s a God thing that I had this book to read and review, as I ve been convicted and we ll see where life leads as far as the busyness that can often creep in when you least expect or think about it Special thanks toSusan Otis Creative Resources for sending me a review copy.

    As parents, we tend to want to give our kids the things they want We want to make life easy for them and give them the opportunity to be involved in every activity that is available to them But we have become a society that is mastered by busyness As moms, we ve become zombies driving a mini van shuttle all day and tossing fast food burgers back to our frazzled, tired children And we ve come to believe that this is the accepted way to live it s simply just the way it is While talking with a friend one day, playing the game busy mom poker I ll see your basketball practices on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights and raise you a 6 30 a.m bus drop off time, author Joanne Kraft realized that busyness had taken hold of her family and was wrestling them to the ground She and her husband decided to take a radical sabbatical For one year, their family said no to any organized activities For her four children, this meant no baseball, music lessons, and no soccer They planned a monthly field trip as a family where each member of the family got to choose where they would go and what they would do as a family that day.Although her children were shocked at first, the family began to see the advantages to having a less busy schedule and time together Instead of ships passing in the night, they had time to sit down to dinner, have family movie night, and learn that quality is important than quantity Her oldest daughter even wrote her a letter after going to college saying how much that year had taught her about what is truly important in life.Busyness and distractions are addicting, leaving us no time for prayer and quality time for our loved ones Busyness is a part of Satan s three step plan He uses it as a weapon to steal our time, kill our joy, and destroy our relationships Nowhere in the bible do the words parent and friend show up together We are meant to parent our children, which does not mean giving them everything they want, or making sure they are involved in every activity available.This book is a must read for every family I know no one who is exempt from this problem Maybe it s time we all considered a radical sabbatical.

    Wow After reading this book, I think all families might be in need of a radical sabbatical in one form or another, that is I ll be the first to admit that as a mom, my day to day life is just plain chaotic but through the writings and revelations of author, Joanne Kraft, it s easy to see that it doesn t have to be this way In fact, as moms we do have a choice, and rather than shuttle our kids back and forth every day of the week, from one activity to the next, maybe it s time we finally opt to place that minivan into park instead Kraft has also provided each of her readers with a gift if you will the opportunity to stop the insanity that envelops our lives, and the realization that time spent with our sweet families is truly the greatest blessing of all So, if you happen to find yourself just too busy throughout your week, then believe me when I say that you ll most definitely relate to, identify with, and possibly re think your current schedule after diving head first into this amazing read And Amen for that Oh, and one thing Kudos to the Kraft family for the courage to do what their peers might have deemed crazy, and for the discipline they displayed in remaining obedient to God through it all Continued Blessings

    Taking a year off of extracurricular activitiesJoanne Kraft tells of her family s radical idea to stop doing so many things and instead spend time together They ate dinner that did not come in a bag and ate at a table rather than in the car Even though her kids missed playing sports, they found that the peace and rest they got was a good trade off My kids were never involved in a lot of activities, but it was a good reminder to me that time is a gift and memories are a precious heirloom I intend to try some changes of my own to get my kids and me to unplug, relax and spend time with each other.
