I enjoyed this book very much. Reading about Adeline’s adventurous travels early in her life to the tragic events that later followed showed incredible fortitude and her ability to overcome anything. Her years of counseling experience provided great insight and a new way of dealing with stressful situations, setting family goals, and living an authentic, SIMPLE life. I loved her use of the acronym of the mission of her F.A.M.I.L.Y. Faith, Adventure, Management, Imagination, Love, and Yield. This was a very inspirational story.

A fascinating story of travel, adventure, family dynamics, and personal growth that can be applied to the reader’s life. I found myself wanting to read on to find out what happened next while also reflecting on similar feelings and circumstances that I have experienced with my own family. Adeline will inspire you to see the world, examine your own circumstances, and find the simple joys that mean the most to us all.

Life is complex and difficult for us all at times. Finding Simple Again is a poignant tale of the author’s life challenges, dating back to childhood and continuing into adulthood. The honesty and intentionality of her stories regarding parenting are especially insightful and relatable. Her detail in writing, her humor, poetry and photos all add to making her book a very good read! We all need a little (or a lot!) more simple, and the author helps to facilitate our finding that in the midst of life’s struggles. Definitely recommend! Also check out her website findingsimpleagain.com for additional writings, artwork, and photos-all delightful! 🙂
