Life is chaotic. But we can choose to live it differently. 

It doesn’t always feel like it, but we do have the freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that our path better aligns with our values and passions.

The popular blogger and founder of the internationally recognized Simple Mom online community tells the story of her family’s ongoing quest to live more simply, fully, and intentionally.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from a hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike.

Entertaining and compelling—but never shrill or dogmatic—Notes from a Blue Bike invites you to climb on your own bike, pay attention to who you are and what your family needs, and make some important choices.

It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life according to who you really are simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.

Review by Pat
After living in Cambridge England for the past six months, my family and I have just returned to America. Our culture shock has been acute. I knew I needed help acclimating to my home culture when I ran into a friend at ALDI and started crying when she nailed it on the head about what we were struggling with BEFORE I even told her. She knew we were missing a slower pace of life, lingering with friends around the dinner table, and an emphasis on relationships. The next day she let me know about this new book that was due to come out in two days. Wow! What a provision of the Lord!. I have just finished the book. So many truths. Wonderfully written. I laughed and cried as I thought to myself, "Tsh knows exactly what I'm feeling". I am now going back through the book to think and pray about how our family can live a slower paced, intentional life according to our life values. I feel like I have been riding tandem on a Blue Bike. (Posted on 2/16/2014)
