Tiber River Review - How To Simplify Your Life

How to Simplify Your Life is an audio CD recording of a talk given by Jeff Cavins. He speaks on ways for us to slow down and relieve our everyday stress.
The CD is 75 minutes long. I listened to it in my car on my way back and forth to work. Both my husband and I enjoyed it immensely. It is one of those speeches I can listen to over and over and I keep learning something new every time.
Mr. Cavins used stories from his own life and scripture to help explain his thoughts on how we can simplify our iives. He explains the difference between what is important and what is urgent and how to prioritize our lives.
Mr. Cavins stated that the key to simplicity is not organization but relationship, especially our relationship with Jesus. Jesus needs to be number one in our lives. Time management is okay to use as long as we put Jesus first in our lives.
Jeff talked about how an orchestra placys beautiful music because it really only plays to an audience of one  - the conductor. The audience might as well not be there in the room at all. The muscians' eyes are all focused on just that one person.
Our lives will be a lot simpler if we too keep our eyes solely on the Master Conductor. Our lives will be filled with more music and peace, If we keep our eyes on number one - Jesus.
I highly recommend this audio CD by Jeff Cavins. If you are looking for ways to simplify your life, if you are looking to be inspired by a great speaker, if you are looking for ways to focus on our Master Conductor, be sure to get this audio recording.

Thanks for the review. It always comes down to Jesus, doesn't it? I am often reminded of the bumper sticker that says "Jesus is the answer." Just keeping that in mind is enough to help us simplify our lives.

Barb, you are so right! Jesus is the answer. Funny, but that has been on my mind today! God bless.
