{August Book Giveaway} Fed Up with Frenzy by Susan Sachs Lipman of SlowFamilyOnline.com

Congrats to Colleen Pence! She’s this month’s winner. Look for the September giveaway announcement during the week of September 3rd.

I am beyond excited about this month’s giveaway. It’s a new book written by one of my favorite family-friendly bloggers, Suz Lipman, of Slow Family Online.

Suz sent along a review copy to read a couple of months ago, and Fed Up with Frenzy lived up to its billing:

The hectic pace of everyday life can keep families constantly on the go, but removing some of the frenzy is easy—if you just take a moment to slow down. Hit the pause button on all of life’s daily distractions and
reconnect with your family in familiar and exciting ways. Experience the enormous benefits of having a slower paced, more connected family. Packed with simple, affordable, and delightful games, crafts, and activities, Fed Up with Frenzy will help you spend more distraction-free time with your children.

In my opinion, Suz Lipman has written a honey of a book that gently and thoughtfully extends the essential, ongoing conversations about the benefits of “slow living” right into the heart of the home.

Truly, Fed Up with Frenzy is a love letter to families everywhere, with practical tips and strategies that are accessible and easy to accomplish.

  1. I had the opportunity to meet Suz and if this book shares her wisdom it should be amazing! I’d love to win too!

  2. I’d love to win this book. Our family needs to learn to slow down before we speed up during this new school year!

  3. Pinned and commented and tweeted. And as to why we are interested, our homeschool year last year was exhausting because of too many scheduled activities, and I realized at one point, all our time at home not spent actually sleeping or doing rushed activities to get ready for leaving home again, was spent in transition from one rushed preparation to the next, or in frantically trying to keep meals cooked and chores done between. There was no actual living or enjoyment of each other at home, or doing anything fun at home, and certainly no real time for having people over to our house just for the pleasure of a visit.

    During a long viral illness in which we didn’t leave the house for 10 days running, we rediscovered each other, and relished what it was like to play board games and read together. I need a roadmap to keep that inspiration alive and want to learn more about the slow life, since due to multiple food allergies we are forced to practice slow cooking, anyway. There is great value in learning these things and just saying no to being chronically rushed and preoccupied.

  4. I am just starting to get ready for the new year of homeschooling. This would provide a good roadmap to stop and enjoy rather than rush from one thing to another off a checklist for school or needed to do’s at home.

  5. I’m starting to homeschool with my daughter this year and while I want to know that we’ll have “enough” to do, I’m aware that we could end up dashing from one fabulous homeschool activity to another. One reason we’re going to homeschool is to get away from the busy-busy-business of middle school and extracurricular activities and would love to use this book to assist with that!
