“Joanne Kraft always comes through with ‘milk out the nose’ humor that is honest, authentic, and even educational! She’s one of my favorite writers.”
James N. Watkins
Award-winning author and editor of Vista
Are you a ‘captive of activity’ or in ‘bondage to busyness’? Author Joanne Kraft asks these and other provocative questions in her compelling new book, The Radical Sabbatical, in which she shares her family’s antidote to the consuming marathon of life––a year-long adventure in togetherness resulting in a renewal of family love, respect, and intimacy. Kraft invites and even challenges readers to consider taking a radical sabbatical of their own. Suggestions, prayers, and real-life examples fill this unique book. You won’t want to miss it.

Joanne Kraft uses humor and grace to point busy moms in a new direction—a direction that leads away from the fast-paced, superstressful lives so many of us lead. This is a must-read for any mom who feels like there has to be more to life than soccer practice and fast food in the minivan. For the first time in a long time, I feel comfortable—no, happy—to say no to busyness and sit back and enjoy my kids, my husband and my life.

Press Release: Kansas City, MO– The new book Just Too Busy-Taking Your Family on a Radical Sabbatical by Joanne Kraft has officially been released by Beacon Hill Press of Kansas City. Through this humorous account, Kraft retells her family tales of busyness overload and how they broke free from the captivity of activity.
In Just Too Busy, author Joanne Kraft takes us on a journey with her and her family as they take a 12-month break from activities, fast food, and technology. You wouldn’t believe how the Kraft family becomes closer as busyness takes a backseat when they shut down their daily shuttle bus. In this book, readers will laugh their way through the ten tell-tale signs that they’re too busy and discover the symptoms for Activity Denial Disorder. Families will find simple ways to guard themselves from the temptation of constant distraction and become convinced that being radical as a family is more than survivable.
Glynnis Whitwer, Editor of P31 Woman Magazine says, “If you feel like someone pressed fast-forward on your life, this is the book for you. Joanne Kraft knows what it’s like to be overwhelmed and overwrought. With compassion and humor, Joanne walks you through her family’s solution to an over-busy life. Even if you don’t take a full Radical Sabbatical yourself, the ideas shared in this book will inspire you to reclaim peace and simplicity in your life.”
If you think your life can’t get any less busy, think again.
