About the Author

Sarah Ban Breathnach's (pronounced "Bon Brannock") work celebrates quiet joys, simple pleasures, and everyday epiphanies. The wisdom, warmth, compassion and disarming candor of her No. 1 New York Times bestsellers, Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy and Something More have made her a trusted voice to millions of women. First published in November 1995 with little fanfare, Simple Adundance—a daily inspirational guide written for people who wish to live by their own lights—soon found its audience through word-of-mouth raves including Oprah Winfrey's, who named it her "favorite book" in 1996 and called it "life-changing." Simple Abundance went on to sell 5 million copies in the U.S. alone and USA Today named it one of the top 10 bestselling books of the ‘90s. Ban Breathnach's frequent appearances on Oprah's show fueled demand for additional SBB publishing projects, which included 10 books in as many years, a successful line of calendars, as well as audio books. Women view her as a loving life coach, friend, and guide. Now, after a life-changing hiatus during which Ban Breathnach divorced, moved to England, and remarried, Sarah is back by popular demand with another life-changing book. This one covers life's inevitable changes, helping every woman facing change to let go, move on, and, finally, to create a beloved new "house of belonging" for herself, at any age and stage of life.

Sarah's books are like lullabies for the soul.

After reading this book, I feel like Sarah believes in me doing just that... which I hope I can do without the scrapbook.

I needed to declutter thirty years of collecting books, cds, clothes, appliances, knick knacks - you name it, I never gave or threw anythng away. I started by boxing up new and in good condition items to take to the Salvation Army every Saturday. I donated thousands of books to my public library. I sent newly dry cleaned clothes and unworn shoes to my local Dress for Success woman's charity. As I decluttered, I spent a month writing down every day what I used and wore - clothes, music, books, appliances - everything I did and used went into a diary. At the end of the month I was shocked to find that I used less than 20% of the music I owned, clothes I wore, appliances I had, etc.

I needed a way to find out if I used these items because they were convenient, or because they were truly my favorites - things I loved and that nourished my soul.

Most of the decluttering and get organized books give you steps to get the physical clutter out the way. Julie Morgenstern's Organizing from the Inside Out and Karen Kingston's Clearing the Clutter help you uncover the psychological reasons why we hold onto clutter. They are great at helping you clear your mental blocks to getting and staying decluttered and organized.

Moving On by Sarah Ban Breathnach takes it to the next level. The author helps you slow down and make a soul nourishing connection to your home and possessions. Using the same format as her bestselling Simple Abundance and Something More, she leads you step by step to turn your home from neatly organized to a sanctuary of soul contentment for you and your family.

Moving On is part memoir, part soul nourishing exercises to coax you into re-connecting to what you love most in your home and life. This is just what I needed in this fast paced world.

I just finished this book and have to say "She did it again" She's given me (all women) permission to not be perfect; perhaps even to revel in non-perfection.

One needs to have read "Simple Abundance" (1996) to get the full impact of Sarah's narrative in "Moving On". What she has shared with us is her digressions from the path of "Simple Abundance" over the past 10 years.

What a difference a decade makes! In 1996 I had an emotional, family crisis. "Simple Abundance" helped me moving forward.

Her book was just what I needed. It was OK to buy a bunch of flowers just for me. It's OK to sneak an hour out of a busy afternoon to go to the new antique store. Wow, I even felt calmer after I had organized my linen closet.

Like Sarah, in the last 10 years I had financial woes, created and then sold a business. She moved across "The Pond" while I moved across the nation (California to Maine). My small family suffered chasms of pain and they are just now starting to come back together.

There are so many topics in the new book that I can relate to -- What are 5 things you like about your kitchen even though you want to remodel it -- HA! I found 10. So many of her observations dovetail with everyday women's lives.

In 1996 "Simple Abundance" was there for me and now "Moving On" can help me as I, too, move on. Thanks to Sarah.

If you're one of the legions who found comfort and joy in the wisdom of Simple Abundance, you won't be disappointed by Moving On, Sarah Ban Breathnach's meditation on creating a home that truly reflects your spirit. Though homekeeping was also one of the topics of Simple Abundance, Moving On is a deeper exploration of what it means to belong in your own environment. Both thoughtful and revealing, Sarah tells through her own story what we know in our hearts to be true: money, fame, and external success will never bring the peace we want and need from our surroundings. Houses don't become havens by accident -- Moving On is a blueprint to help you start the process of creating your sanctuary.

Format: Hardcover
Absolutely one of the best books I've read in the last 10 years. As a grief counselor, I am painfully aware of how people get "stuck in a rut" and go back to old familiar behaviour. The only difference between a rut and a grave is it's size and the amount of time one spends in it. She has once again given us all something to think about as well as a plan of action that so many people don't really seem to have. As well as change lives, this book will, in this man's humble opinion, undoubtedly save some as well. A must read for grievors, those who have gone through seperation or divorce, and for the rest of us that haven't.... yet.

I received an email that said Sara's Back and offered me to pre-order this book. Though I love reading I never pre-ordered a book but "Something More, Excavating Your Authentic Self" led me out of a 20 year miserable marriage on a path to self-discovery. I read this book in one weekend as it was a page-turner and I couldn't put it down! I looked around my apt. at all the unnecessary clutter and vowed to fix this problem this weekend. So many dormant emotions ran through my mind as I read this book. It felt as if we were gal pals just chatting. I love the way she references other books and blend them into her thoughts. This meshing allows the reader to experience multiple authors simutaneously yet collectively. I sent this book to my sister in hopes that she will "see the light" that your home is sacred and react accordingly. However, I will order another for my own library ASAP!
