Hands Free Life: A Review

Katie King Katie King

In Hands Free Life, Rachel Macy Stafford lays out nine habits “for overcoming distraction, living better, and loving more.” Who wouldn’t want to do these things, especially in our always-on, plugged-in culture? For each “habit”, Stafford includes personal examples, daily declarations, and how-to habit builders.







I have to confess, when I ordered a review copy of this book I thought I was ordering Stafford’s first book, Hands Free Mama. I found out about Hands Free Mama through Stafford’s various posts that have gone viral and subsequently been discussed all over the blogs I read. Hands Free Life is actually her second book! Good to know.

As a severe introvert, I found this book to be a little overwhelming. Each habit is designed to help you connect in more meaningful and deeper ways with the special people in your life. While each habit on its own may be really helpful, reading through all nine at once made me want to hide in my bedroom and ignore the incessant knocking from little hands! I think it would be good for me to return to this book one chapter at a time, with weeks in between to process and apply what I’ve read.

Stafford has clearly applied the “hands free” concept to her life and reaped wonderful rewards. I appreciated her sincerity and encouragement to her readers to become more “hands free” in our busy days.



I was planning on doing a giveaway, but just this morning, without knowing I was reading it, my mom asked me to see if I could get a review copy of this book because she wanted to read it! So this copy goes to my mama. But if you want to be more “hands free”, check your library or visit your favorite bookseller!
