Living with less so your family has more - Jill and Mark Savage

Subtitle - Redefining your priorities to put your family first. This book is written by a husband and wife team who have decided that they don't have to listen to a society that says more is better and they have helped many others discover the joys of contentment. This book is a testimony that it can work and is filled with stories of how they and others are doing it. Jill is founder of hearts at home, www.hearts-at-home.org, and Mark is a pastor and speaker, www.dadyoucandoit.blogspot.com. The book is divided into three sections, vision, attitude, and action,with a prayer and questions at the end of each chapter.
I always enjoy a book that gives practical ways to swim against the stream of the world and be content, save money and prioritize your life. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on sacrifice, and the difference between constructive and destructive sacrifices. We need more books like this to encourage us to be content and practical ideas that can be used in any family. I would recommend this book to any family that wants to live with less so your family has more, more of what we REALLY  want and not just more things.
