7 An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess Updated and Revised Book Excerpt:

Why do we pursue more when we'd be happier with less? This is the story of how New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker and her family tried to combat overindulgence—and what they learned about living a truly meaningful life along the way. Do you feel trapped in the machine of excess? Jen Hatmaker was. Her friends were. And some might say that our culture is. Jen once considered herself unmotivated by the lure of prosperity, but after she was called “rich” by an undeniably poor child, evidence to the contrary mounted and a social experiment turned spiritual journey was born. 7 is the true story of how Jen (along with her husband and her children) took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of materialism and overindulgence: food, clothes, possessions, media and technology, spending, waste, and stress. So, what’s the payoff from living a deeply reduced life? It’s the discovery of a greatly increased God—a call toward Christ-like simplicity and generosity that transcends a social experiment to become a radically better life. Revised and updated to reflect newer challenges of modern life, 7 is funny, raw, and not a guilt trip in the making, so come along and consider what Jesus’ version of rich, blessed, and generous might look like in your life.

7 Days of Simplicity Book Excerpt:

Inspired by her iconic 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess, New York Times-bestselling author Jen Hatmaker explores the spiritual side of a simpler life and the way our choices affect our spirit, our loved ones, our community, and the earth in her new gift book 7 Days of Simplicity: A Season of Living Lightly. In 7 Days of Simplicity Hatmaker shares from her own experiences in living lightly, “finding deep delight in exactly what you have and where you are, never letting anyone shame you out of simplicity or contentment.” Throughout the book are excerpts of Jen’s own journey to offer hope, humor, facts, and encouragement for the reader with a fresh look at how our own daily choices affect the sustainability of our lives and God’s earth. The book confronts our desire to compete in the all-consuming consumer-goods game calling the reader to slow down, catch a breath, live with intention, and live like today is all we have, because those small ripples eventually make big waves for everyone.

Fierce Free and Full of Fire Book Excerpt:

No more hiding or people-pleasing up in here, sisters. No more being sidelined in your own life. It is time for us to be brave, to claim our gifts and quirks and emotions. You are set free and set up and set on fire. NOW you can get busy doing what you were placed on this planet to do. NOW you can be honest, honest, honest about all of it, even the hard stuff, even the humiliating stuff, even the secret stuff. NOW you can walk in your convictions of faith and ask new questions unafraid. NOW you can be so free, because you are not searching for value from any source other than your own beautiful soul made piece by piece by God who adores you and is ready to get on with the business of unleashing you into this world. In this book, I break it down into five self-reflective categories—who I am, what I need, what I want, what I believe, and how I connect—and by working your way through them, you will learn to own your space, ground, and gifts (they are YOURS, sister); be strong in your relationships and lay down passive aggression, resentment, drama, and compliance; say GUILT-FREE what you want and what you need; and welcome spiritual curiosity and all the fantastic change that doing so creates. You with me, beloveds? If we do this work on our own selves now, not only will we discover a life truly worth living, but we will free our daughters to rise up behind us, with spines straight, heads up, and coated in our strength.

Interrupted Book Excerpt:

Interrupted follows the author’s messy journey through life and church and into living on mission. Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?” She was far too busy doing church than being church, even as a pastor’s wife, an author of five Christian books, and a committed believer for 26 years. She discovered she had missed the point. Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path. Interrupted invites readers to take a similar journey.

The One Book Excerpt:

The parable in Luke 15:1-7 can be seen from three angles. The dilemma of the shepherd is whether or not to leave the ninety-nine and go in search of the one lost sheep. It may not make sense economically and rationally, but he leaves them anyway and begins his search. The poor sheep has wandered away and is lost-not hopelessly so, but lost. The sheep does have hope, and it rests with the shepherd whose love for her is so vast and so relentless that he won't rest until he finds the sheep. And then there's the ninety-nine. Their attitude and behavior toward the lost sheep is paramount in the story. Will they join in the search? Will they celebrate with the shepherd once the sheep is returned? Or will they criticize and whine about how the shepherd spends all his time searching for the one who is lost? The One explores the foundational nature of this parable and how important its implications are for the church and one's own walk with the Lord. The value that God places on the one is life-changing for those who come to understand it. "An intense and powerful vision shared through the lens of author Ronny Russell's personal and professional spiritual journey. Authenticity is found in every paragraph that rings with empowering truth, inspiration, and encouragement for the one. ... I have watched Ronny's journey for decades and found his passion to be deep, contagious, and transformational for the one and the remnant who seek meaning in our fast-paced world filled with churches that often miss the one to preserve the institution. Ronny serves Christ above all and finds hope in God's calling and gifting as a member of the body of Christ. Truly a worthy and engaging read!" -Edward Hammett, author of Spiritual Leadership in a Secular Age and Recovering Hope for Your Church

From the woman who acted like a prostitute to the woman who was one, the widow to the adulteress to the mother, each has something to pass on.

Satisfied Book Excerpt:

The Counter-Cultural Move from Accumulation to Abundance Why is it so hard to find the contented, satisfied life? What deep hungers drive our purchasing habits, accumulation, and consumer lifestyle? Satisfied is for those drowning in debt, but also those getting farther and farther ahead financially. It is for those who have forgotten who they are and mistakenly equate their self-worth with their net worth. It is for those who are crippled by comparison. It is for those with full closets and empty souls. Satisfied provides an inspiring and transformative vision for living a deeply contented life in our consumer-driven culture. "Jeff Manion's voice is such a wise, clear, helpful voice, and I'm so thankful for the timely and challenging invitation he's issued in these pages. I'm inspired to live more richly with fewer things, and to pursue gratitude and generosity with more intention." - Shauna Niequist, author of Bread and Wine

The Year of Small Things Book Excerpt:

When Sarah and Tom Arthur were appointed to a suburban church after three years in an urban Christian community, they faced a unique challenge: how to translate the practices of "radical" faith into their new context. Together with their friends and fellow church members Erin and Dave Wasinger, the Arthurs embarked on a yearlong experiment to implement twelve small practices of radical faith--not waiting until they were out of debt or the kids were out of diapers or God sent them elsewhere, but right now. This book is Sarah and Erin's story, told with humor, theological reflection, and practical insight, exploring such practices as simplicity, hospitality, accountability, sustainability, and social justice--but, most of all, discernment. Along the way readers will consider how God might be calling them to embark on their own year of small but radical changes, right where God has planted them. Each chapter includes discussion questions and suggested readings. Foreword by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. For more information, visit [www.YearofSmallThings.com](http://www.YearofSmallThings.com).

Bringing Home the Missing Linck Book Excerpt:

From the time Jennifer Linck was old enough to rock her Cabbage Patch Doll, she dreamed of being a mother. As her friends began welcoming tiny bundles of joy, Jennifer struggled to conceive a child. As a gut-wrenching desire to be a mom built within her, God began to place adoption on Jennifer's heart. In 2010, Jennifer and her husband, John, felt God leading them to build their family through international adoption. Eighteen months after they began their journey to Ethiopia, God took them on a detour that only He could have orchestrated. After accepting a job at the local homeless shelter, Jennifer began to see how God truly wanted her to live her life-serving the least of these. As God transformed her heart and showed her how to truly love the poor, the widow, and the orphan, He began to weave together a story that would eventually lead to her son. In Bringing Home the Missing Linck, Jennifer shares how the pain and heartache of infertility became the building blocks God used to strengthen her faith and make her heart more like His, as He answered her prayers for a child.

Christian Minimalism Book Excerpt:

Focus on what matters most—and intentionally remove the rest. Logically, we all know our purpose in life is not wrapped up in accumulating possessions, wealth, power, and prestige—Jesus is very clear about that—but society tells us otherwise. Christian Minimalism attempts to cut through our assumptions and society’s lies about what life should look like and invites readers into a life that Jesus calls us to live: one lived intentionally, free of physical, spiritual, and emotional clutter. Written by a woman who simplified her own life and practices these principles daily, this book gives readers a fresh perspective on how to live out God’s grace for us in new and exciting ways and live out our faith in a way that is deeply satisfying.
