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.

What a beautiful, beautiful book. And so loved the opportunity to listen to it read by Courtney. She has a lovely, soothing voice, perfect for narration.

I have read a good deal on the topic of minimalism and simplicity—from all the big names in the movement. Unequivocally, *Soulful Simplicity* is **THE BEST** book on the matter I've encountered, bar none. Other articles and books have offered practical wisdom and insights, but Courtney's book, beyond that, has touched my heart and inspired me to finish the race. Perhaps it’s Courtney’s unabashed authenticity in sharing her own story or her multiple lists of sage suggestions that distill the essence of the simple life or the exquisite way in which she sees the sacred in each and every moment we so often take for granted. Maybe it’s all of these things. Whatever it is, this book is a treasure trove of wisdom you’ll want to return to time and again. I'm grateful beyond words for such thoughtful and soulful work. It speaks volumes to the ever-present angst we struggle with in our culture of consumption and excess.
