We are often on a quest for more, giving in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Courtney Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Stress was like gasoline on the fire of her symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent. In this book, Carver shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less - more space, more time, and even more love.

Any additional comments?

I really hesitated to buy this book because I have been reading Courtney Carver's Blog for years and I figured there wouldn't be anything new for me in the book. I decided to buy the audible book on a whim for something to listen to on a long flight. What a wonderful surprise! I have learned a great deal of new information from listening to Soulful Simplicity. I recommend it for people new to her work and also to anyone who has been following her blog or practicing Project 333. There are gems inside!

I listened to this book a few months ago after hearing the author guest speak on a podcast. I loved every line. In fact, it's about time to listen to it again! I am very glad I have it in my permanent library and hope to share it with others when the time seems right.
