Editorial Reviews

Review

Our society’s definition of success---in which success is defined just in terms of money and power---isn’t working. With a mix of powerful storytelling and practical tools, Hands Free Life offers the inspiration and the daily actions to live our lives with more grace, more joy, more gratitude, and more love. -- Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive, Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive

Rachel does it again! As I read Hands Free Life, I felt my pulse slow, my lungs fill, and my anxiety lessen. Rachel’s writing is a Reset button. Her advice is practical, and her message is clear, gentle, and true: Less stress! Less distraction! MORE LOVE! Thanks, Rachel, for reminding us what matters: our people. -- Glennon Doyle Melton, author of New York Times bestseller Carry On, Warrior and founder of Momastery.com and Together Rising, Glennon Doyle Melton, author of New York Times bestseller Carry On, Warrior and founder of Momastery.com and Together Rising

In this intensely insightful book, Rachel teaches parents how to engage with their children as they truly deserve: with heart, presence, and grace. Hands Free Life will inspire you to grow with your children and reach depths of your being like never before. Its words will allow you to discover your highest potential as a parent and thereby bestow your children with an inestimable gift: your engaged being. -- Dr. Shefali Tsabary, New York Times bestselling author of The Conscious Parent, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, New York Times bestselling author of The Conscious Parent

If you need a clear-minded and clear-hearted guide to a more fulfilling life, this is it. Again, author Rachel Macy Stafford provides us with actionable and meaningful ways to love well, live fully, and leave a legacy we can be proud of. -- Patti Digh, author of Life is a Verb and seven other books, Patti Digh, author of Life is a Verb and seven other books

Rachel’s wise words inspired me to be a more connected, more present parent, and for that I’m so thankful. I’ll be handing this out left and right to the people in my life. -- Shauna Neiquist, bestselling author of Savor and Bread and Wine, Shauna Neiquist, bestselling author of Savor and Bread and Wine

It took one day. I only could allow one day to read Hands Free Life. I was busy being a dad, a husband, and a cancer patient. I knew I was distracted, but there was a purpose. I was on a mission, and I acknowledged my limited time. As I settled in to read Rachel’s words, my heart stayed in my throat the entire journey. She gets it. She knows we’re distracted, and it’s not just the number of screens we have in our lives. It’s our incredibly complex, crazy, and somewhat out-of-control lives. Rachel Macy Stafford will help you reconnect and build strong relationships. Even if you make a moderate amount of effort, your family will thank you for strengthening your relationships! Once again, I owe Rachel a big thank-you for bringing relationships and family to the forefront of everyone’s mind. -- Garth Callaghan, The Napkin Notes Dad, Garth Callaghan, The Napkin Notes Dad

Reading Hands Free Life spoke to me at a deep, heart level. It challenged me to stop hurrying through life, quit worrying about what other people think, and start savoring the ordinary, everyday moments. I smiled through some parts, cried through others, and came away with fresh resolve to make each day count---not in more efficient productivity, but in more meaningful relationships. Highly, highly recommended! -- Crystal Paine, founder of MoneySavingMom.com and New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, Crystal Paine, founder of MoneySavingMom.com and New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

Rachel’s words beautifully remind us of the little things---and the big things that make a LIFE. A happier, healthier, more fulfilled life. In Hands Free Life, we are gently but firmly guided to unplug from our 24/7 world and to passionately pursue the connectivity that is so vital to our children, partners, families, friends---and ourselves. Pick it up today---and I promise: you won’t want to put it down. -- Amy McCready, founder of Positive Parenting Solutions and author of The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic―A Step-by-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World, Amy McCready, founder of Positive Parenting Solutions and author of The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic―A Step-by-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World

Can I simply say: Read this beautiful book. It will feed your soul, free your spirit, and fill your heart. Hands Free Life is an irresistible wake-up call for all of us who wish to parent more thoughtfully, love more generously, and live more joyously. -- Katrina Kenison, author of Mitten Strings for God and The Gift of an Ordinary Day, Katrina Kenison, author of Mitten Strings for God and The Gift of an Ordinary Day

With her unique blend of transparent storytelling and thoughtful insight, Rachel Macy Stafford reminds us again why hers is one of the most important voices of our generation. -- Joshua Becker, bestselling author of Simplify and founder of Becoming Minimalist, Joshua Becker, bestselling author of Simplify and founder of Becoming Minimalist --This text refers to the paperback edition.
