Jill and Mark Savage share real tips to help real families facing downsizing or those simply trying to live well, all while putting their families first. The Savages, writing together, look at the attitude adjustments that husbands and wives need successfully live on a limited income. They balance those attitudes with practical actions that will help families live the life they long for. Sprinkled throughout are true stories from real families who have used Jill and Mark's techniques for living richly. Their honest, straightforward, in-the-trenches-right-along-with-you approach will inspire and encourage parents that they can live well while still putting their families first.
