THE WORLD NEEDS DREAMERS AND THE WORLD NEEDS DOERS. BUT ABOVE ALL, THE WORLD NEEDS DREAMERS WHO DO.

Breathnach's inspiring new book, Peace and Plenty, recaptures the gentle voice of gratitude and gumption that made Simple Abundance a sensation.
Peace and Plenty -- is, possibly, one of the best personal finance books ever written.
For more than a decade I’ve been reviewing books for "USA Today’s" Money section. There have been some really special books along the way–books that strike an inner chord with me, and I find myself jotting down passages to remember. Peace and Plenty fits that category. I’m smitten.
A timeless read ...What Sarah does is both heroic and brave...Peace and Plenty tells us to soldier on during life's heartbreaks because the rain will stop and the sun will come out again. We have all gone through some terrible times in our lives--a divorce, a long layoff or the death or serious illness of a loved one. We can see and even feel that walls collapsing on the lives that we have so carefully built since leaving college. We've cried in our cups and lamented to friend that "life was not supposed to turn out this way" ... [Sarah] offers a flashlight to those who have fallen on unexpected hard times and says that if she can make it back ... you can too. As for Sarah Ban Breathnach's Peace and Plenty, I'll add it to my annual booklist too.
Women read Simple Abundance—then give the book to 10 friends because it rings so true.
Sarah Ban Breathnach might be described as the Isaac Newton of the simplicity movement.
-Sunday Telegraph (London)
Sarah Ban Breathnach speaks to the very soul of frazzled modern women who suffer from a lethal surge of impossible expectations.
The Best Part of the Day teaches the life affirming philosophy of gratitude found in Simple Abundance to children. The wonderful result is a shared experience of gratitude when The Best Part of the Day is read to a child by a loving adult.
-Midwest Book Review
Many women exclaim how Simple Abundance changed their lives; The Best Part of the Day will bring this same life-changing message to their children and grandchildren.
-Howling Horn blog
This new children’s book proves itself to be one of those books; the books that are stuck in our memories because they were our favorites to hear and see when we were growing up. This is not an exaggeration, either. This story is all about seeing the world and being thankful for it.
