Family Takes a Year-Long 'Radical Sabbatical'

Ad Feedback

Most Americans take a break from their busy lives at some point during the summer.

One family, however, decided to break with tradition. Instead of taking a week-long vacation they opted instead to take off an entire year.

Christian women's speaker Joanne Kraft and her husband decided to cancel all of their extracurricular activities for themselves and their four kids in the name of family sanity.

Kraft, the author of the book titled "Just Too Busy: Taking Your Family on a Radical Sabbatical," talked to CBN News about their "radical sabbatical" and how it changed their lives for the better.

She also gave some pointers to other families seeking relief from the stress of their everyday lives during an appearance on the CBN News Channel Morning News, Aug. 18.
