By W. Sears on March 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
The way the book was laid out caused me to think this might be a boring read -- more of a reference, perhaps. When I sat down and started reading, the thing reads itself. Almost every green author right now has a top-10 list of how-to-go-green directives. The difference with Nancy's book is that she tells you why it's important to do those things (i.e. statistics about how many gallons of water it takes to produce certain products, etc.).

The frequent home-spun stories are warm and inviting, as well, causing the reader to identify with the everyday applications of the thousands of tips in the book. Having read the book, I've done a complete overhaul of my house (CFLs, low-flow showerhead, recycling, cloth napkins, water/heating/cooling conservation, as well as used clothing and checking out other used items on Craigslist and Freecycle. THIS is the book that can help all of us save money, remind us of the joys of family, and actively save the planet in our everyday lives. A must-have, for sure.

A singularly interesting and valuable tool for any "greenie", this text is the ultimate for a spiritually-minded person. Combines the best of both areas: ecologically sound, and centered on the Bible. I would send this book to any friends who are confused about their own role in the society in which we live. This is a difficult time for everyone in America, and even those with an adequate source of funds will find money saving tips galore, to reduce wanton expense and therefore have more to donate/give away/share. Start reading and then start DOING. It is easy with this book in your hands. Thanks Mrs. Sleeth.

By the time I picked this up many of the tips I was well aware of. However, there were still plenty of things that I had not thought about. I had already incorporated 80% of the ideas but the remaining 20% were valuable for continuing my journey to live more lightly on the planet. It's a must have. It is good to give to people looking green up their lives or just save money. Great gift idea for new homeowners. Loved all the biblical references to encourage us to live our faith in meaningful every day ways.

Format: Paperback
Found this at Wheaton College during a camp. It has a lot of good practical guides, but the tips cater towards the upper-middle class white folks.
For example, the book assumes that reader is a home-owner who also has the time and money to switch/trade for a hybrid car. There is also no mention of using public transportation, a stereotypically low-class "colored folks" thing even though public transit is just as good as riding the bike (and safer too). It's not that the book is bad, but it's that if you're not the suburban white type, the book may not be as relevant to your situation and needs.
However, there are a handful of practical tips that most people can apply, such as saving money on healthy snacks, the type of clothes to buy, and cloth diapering.

This book excellently links faith with stewardship.

This book is so full of fascinating, creative actions for environmental stewardship, I forgot to feel "guilty!" The practical activities and consumer advice show me ways to get organized; get healthy; and get smart, with no prior "training" assumed. Not only is the book a "no guilt guide", it is also written for the busy person. It is designed so that the reader can enjoy gathering initial tips and inspiration, lay the book aside, then pick up right where one left off.

Nancy Sleeth's book is a simple, direct, and encouraging book about actually working to help our planet and improve our personal lives. I suggest reading her husband Matthew's book (Serve God, Save the Planet) first because he explains more of the background details about their decision to "downsize" their footprint and "upsize" their lives. Then Nancy's book provides the practical details for starting on this path. She's very realistic about the process, including honest discussions of some of their struggles and problems, but encouraging the reader that one person or one family really can make a difference.
