Product Description
"We've all felt the pressure to keep up with the Joneses. Often it seems like it takes two incomes to survive in today's economy. But what if that is not true for your family? What if your family can thrive on less than two full-time salaries and flourish by spending more time together? Tackling these tough questions using faith-based views and values, this book gives parents encouraging and realistic ideas for a healthy and solid family. In this book, Brese Doebler challenges the two income assumption, and takes you on a journey toward the joy of discovering your family."

You can also find the workbook on CD which is available at the website:

Jump into action with Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family Workbook on CD.
"This step-by-step workbook walks you through how to thrive on less than two incomes. Many concepts from the Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family book are included, along with the following special features:
· Spending and debt diaries
· Monthly bill management system
· Family priorities chart
· A comprehensive action plan for you to begin planning with your family
· A personal coaching session with Cathi Brese Doebler"

What we thought:  This is a Christian faith-based book full of great information and encouraging passages that are really helpful if you are downsizing to one income or starting a family while relying on only one income, whether by choice or because of the economy.  The tips and lessons the author shares are wonderful and best of all, DO-able!  For our family, the joys of being a stay-at-home parent definitely outweigh the need for two-incomes for both of our the kiddos, my husband and myself.  We are definitely blessed by living this life and this book can teach other families the steps they need to know to make a one-income family a joyful family:)  This book would be great for Dads (and Moms:) who are looking to make this change for their families. ABCD Diaries gives Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family an A+!
