Books For Intentional Simple Living

I wanted to compile a list of my favorite books to share on my site.  I love reading, it is my outlet locked up in a small apartment with kids. So I wanted to write a list of the best.  The ones I remember (and my memory is pretty bad), the ones that have changed the way I live my life.  These are the books that stick out.

I am always looking for new books to read and love recommendations :)

(if there is multiple authors, I just list the first one so you can find the right book)


The Bible - clearly the best and most practical book of all time

Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (Workbook)- book and workbook really challenges subculture christianity vs biblical christianity. I have gone through it several times and really enjoy it.

Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God


Now, Discover Your Strengths – I really liked how he broke down personalities, they have much more than a business application

The 4-Hour Workweek, Expanded and Updated:by Tim Ferriss - This is one of the books that got us to stop dreaming and actually try to create our own lives.

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness- Dave Ramsey’s book (or any of his stuff).  Great financial advice, easy plan, with a great and motivating presentation.


The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Healthby T Colin Campbell - really great research… not a quick read but lots of great info

Skinny Bitchby Rory Freedman – kinda like above but a much more fun read

In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan – Brilliant and practical.

Any books by John Robbins, I have read three of his and love them.  Food Revolution, The: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World or Healthy at 100: The Scientifically Proven Secrets of the World’s Healthiest and Longest-Lived Peoples

Home school

The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Third Edition)by Susan Wise Bauer – great philosophy, helped me relax on lots of stuff but know where to really hit hard.  Effective education.. not busy work :)

The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child: by Susan Wise Bauer (co author and daughter of above) - 4 books set that is so easy to understand and full of information.  Everything all together, in order.  I am enjoying it.

Konos Character Curriculum – A great hands on curriculum that work for all ages.  Perfect for home full of kids that need to move and touch and are all in different grades.
