A collection of personal stories, gleaned from the authors' experiences and learnings in the suburbs of Canadian cities.

Along the way there have been interruptions: affirmations about good use of resources, and confrontations about negative suburban values we have adopted.

The authors' hope is that the reader will find their own story in these pages.
With insight, compassion, and a knack for telling a genuinely good story, Hugo and Doreen Neufeld have gathered an engaging collection of suburban experience stories that could happen to anyone. What is especially appealing and potentially transforming  is its honesty and vulnerability. When we hold our time and possessions lightly, we will discover the way of true freedom and joy. Let the celebration begin!”-- Marlene Kropf, inspirational speaker, writer, retreat leader, Associate Professor in Spiritual Formation and Worship at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Elkhart, Indiana

“Do you eat groceries? Live in a house? Drive a car? Ride a bus? Wonder about your neighbors?  Then let Affluenza Interrupted lead you on a journey through the suburbs that will challenge, inspire and illuminate. The Neufelds ask soul-searching questions . . . and often find God-infused answers . . . in the commonplace world of contemporary suburbia."-– Doris Daley Haysom, writer, entertainer, award winning Cowboy Poet, a featured performer at major cowboy festivals in Canada and United States

“In this compelling book, Hugo and Doreen Neufeld share stories about their struggle to use goods rightly. Rather than hurling Jeremiads from the mountain, they invite readers to accompany them in their journey to simpler living and faithfulness to Gospel values.”-– Paul Dekar, professor (McMaster University, Memphis  eological Seminary) contemplative, peacemaker, Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America board member, author of numerous books
