Praise for The Big Tiny
The Big Tiny is a beautifully written narrative, one that goes beyond happiness and living simply. The power of Dee’s words will touch your heart, make you laugh, cry, and change your life. – Tammy Strobel, author of You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap)
The Big Tiny is irresistible. Dee Williams is as much fun on the page as she is in person. Comic, silly, and soulful, she takes us on her journey to simplify her life and along the way tunes in to our own inner desire to pare down to our nearly naked selves. – Jim Lynch, author of The Highest Tide and Truth Like the Sun
