This online interview was a first for me, Melissa, and it appears there were some glitches in my screen refresh.
If you find the freezing of my screen distracting, you may find it easier to listen, rather than view, this interview. Learning and growing!

Early Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this read because it perfectly aligns with where I am in my own journey. I could totally relate to your point of view. I think you did a great job covering the spiritual aspect of the lifestyle, even for non-believers. I like that you included questions to reflect on the information covered. Overall I would give this book 5 stars! Thank you so much for sharing.

This book resonated with me on many levels because I am in a mini-life season change. Your words have helped me to refocus my plans and to not allow myself to be distracted by things that could be considered sloth-like throughout the day. My time is more valuable than I have given it credit for.

I just finished going through the whole book. I think it is beautifully written! It was very inspirational to me. It got me thinking about what I can cut out of my life to be more “rested”.
