Publisher's Summary

Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter, and we tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. While excess consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, fancier technology, and cluttered homes, it never brings happiness. Rather, it results in a desire for more. It redirects our greatest passions to things that can never fulfill, and it distracts us from the very lives we wish we were living. But it doesn't have to be this way.
In The More of Less, Joshua Becker helps you:

Recognize the life-giving benefits of owning less
Realize how all the stuff you own is keeping you from pursuing your dreams
Craft a personal, practical approach to decluttering your home and life
Experience the joys of generosity
Learn why the best part of minimalism isn't a clean house; it's a full life

It's time to own your possessions instead of letting them own you. After all, the beauty of minimalism isn't in what it takes away. It's in what it gives.

Need a strong stomach for Christian faith to get through this one

I write this as an A-religious person who has listened thoughtfully to many many spiritual growth books that reference Jesus. Cerainly we can learn from all walks of life and many themes are universal. However, I just couldn't get past the intro and first chapter, which is heavy with reference to the author's church, sermonizing, and to Jesus himself. Wish I would've known this was the kind of crowd for this book...would've saved the credit for Marie Kondo or the Minimalists.

Lots of what not much how

Hundreds of great reasons to downsize, not much concrete advice on how to accomplish that. Maybe it is just as simple as "get rid of excess stuff." But if we knew how to do that we wouldn't be reading this book.
