Ellie Roscher ’06 M.A. and Heidi Barr ’06 M.A. are the co-authors of “12 Tiny Things: Simple Ways to Live a More Intentional Life,” published by Broadleaf Books in 2021.
In a culture that says bigger is better, it is subversive work to take tiny, lasting steps toward learning and growth. Roscher and Barr journey through 12 essential areas of life: space, work, spirituality, food, style, nature, communication, home, sensuality, creativity, learning, and community. In each of these areas, they invite the reader to take one tiny action to open up growth and renewal. The result is movement toward a spiritual practice that promotes a more reflective, rooted, and intentional life.
“In these times, where do we find our capacity to be adaptive, integrative, and resilient?” asks executive coach MaryAnn Anderson. “This book is a place to begin, a blueprint for presence that is wholly accessible and doable! Tiny things that build and anchor profound transformation.”
