Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unlike typical orginizational books  Apr 18, 2005
Several years ago, I bought this book for myself. It was a great help during a time of massive transition. Today, I am buying it for a friend.

If you know that you don't have time for what is really important to you, but you aren't sure why or how to fix it - this book is like a ray of sunshine piercing through the clouds. Unlike typical organizational books this book does not focus on taming paper, cataloging information, to do lists or household choirs.

This book does not assume that each reader is the same. But, this book does focus on the freedom to be in the center of God's will and how that applies to your life, one day at a time. An added plus for the time cruched person who needs this saged wisdom: the book is a relatively quick read.

Today it is being placed on my annual must read list - I highly reccomend it.
Extraordinary Book that will Enrich the Life of the Believer  Oct 1, 1999
Hummel's "Freedom from Tyranny..." is a wonderful amplification of his booklet "Tyranny of the Urgent." Like its predecessor, the book encourages you to examine your life and realign your priorities by seeking to live a holy life. This book is a beautiful balance of illustrative vignettes, Scripture, and Hummel's thoughts.

The book is very encouraging, uplifting, and peace-inducing.

I've been leading a small group study in which we are slowly digesting the book and attempting, with God's help, to apply it. The group members unanimously love the book. They all feel uplifted and have remarked on Hummel's giftedness in encouraging us rather than making us feel guilty that we haven't mastered the topics yet.

This book is a gift to yourself. I encourage you to read it with an open heart, then give a copy to loved ones.

I've returned to order an additional five. That brings my total to 20 so far.

God bless you.

Reclaim Your Time  Dec 8, 1997
This book is great for someone who is stressed out because they are always so busy dealing with the urgent that they find themself forgetting the important. While many books on time management are great for motivation - this one brings time management tips to you in a practical manner - with questions for reflection and application at the end of each chapter.

There were two sections of this book that I found particularly helpful. One dealt with the difference between being efficient - and being effective. Before reading this, I had never realized that a person could show 100% efficiency in something but never have it be effective in helping anyone! The second section that helped me was a list of 7 tips and ways to say no. One of the most helpful tips was to learn to "go with your gifts" when making the choice between two good things.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to reclaim their time.
