Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Encouragement is a card sent for no reason, a cup of tea and a listening ear, being loved for who we are. Abundance is a pink and lavender sunset sky, wildflowers in a mason jar, an unexpected phone call from a friend. Simplicity is a clean closet, a child's smile, eyes closed in prayer. All of these gifts are too easily lost in today's chaotic and breakneck world. In these three elegant and quietly profound books, Candy Paull gently helps readers to reshift their focus so they can once again find those gifts, especially when they are most needed. Browser-friendly and beautifully designed, these books are full of inspirational quotations and thought-provoking insights to help us through our harried days. "The Art of Encouragement" helps busy people cultivate creativity and self-confidence in themselves and others. "The Art of Abundance" calls attention to the little blessings for which we can be thankful. And "The Art of Simplicity" opens the way to the center of the heart wherein lies the wisdom that nurtures body, mind, and spirit. A perfect gift for family members, friends, or yourself, these books, individually or as a package, can help anyone uncover the buried joys and forgotten treasures of simple daily living.
