This is a curriculum based on Bill Hybels’ groundbreaking book, Simplify.
Today’s velocity of life can consume and control us . . . until a breakneck pace begins to feel normal and expected. That’s where the danger lies: When we spend our lives doing things that keep us busy but don’t really matter, we sacrifice the things that do. What if your life could be different? What if you could be certain you were living the life God called you to live-and building a legacy for those you love? If you crave a simpler life anchored by the priorities that matter most, roll up your sleeves: Simplified living requires more than just cleaning out your closets or reorganizing your desk drawer. It requires uncluttering your soul. By eradicating the stuff that leaves your spirit drained, you can stop doing what doesn’t matter-and start doing what does.
In this four-session Simplify DVD Study, bestselling author Bill Hybels shares his own story of the wake-up call that changed everything – and the steps he took to simplify his life before it was too late. You’ll discover how to stop living at a frantic pace and begin charting a new course toward satisfaction, purpose, and significance. Join Bill to discover the power of simplicity in your schedule, work, finances, relationships and soul.
