Living Well, Spending Less

Ruth Soukup knows exactly what it is like to want what you can't afford and spend more than you have. She also knows the downward spiral of out-of-control spending and the destruction it can cause. Soukup's newest book, "Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life," shares her personal experience and insights to help readers focus on what matters most (Zondervan, 12/30/14, $15.99, ISBN13: 9780310337676). {Book provided for review/feature consideration}

"I have found that the state of my finances usually mirrors the state of the rest of my life," Soukup states in "Living Well, Spending Less." "If I am a mess with my money, then I am generally a mess everywhere else. Thus, I am passionate about saving money, not because I have all the answers, but because I have learned that money – whether too much of it or too little – permeates every area, every single facet, of our lives.... Ultimately how we spend our money is a direct reflection of what is in our hearts."

On a mission to get both her finances and her personal life back on track, Soukup abandoned her shopping bags and started a blog (http://www.livingwellspendingless.com) about her journey to keep herself accountable in the quest for a new and balanced life. Through the process, Soukup gained a new understanding about the value of being content with the life she had rather than always longing for more, and now inspires more than 1.5 million readers a month with her tips and advice for living on a budget.

"In Living Well, Spending Less," Soukup not only shares her highly sought-after money-saving secrets on an even larger scale, but challenges her readers to seek a life rich not in material things but rather the true treasures to be discovered in faith, family, friends and creativity.

Ruth Soukup is a writer, blogger, entrepreneur, DIY-er, devoted wife, mom, and above all, a child of a loving and gracious God. Her passion is encouraging and empowering other women to find hope and contentment in the midst of daily struggle. Soukup lives with her husband and two daughters in Florida.
