Title & author:
The Grace of Enough: Pursuing Less and Living More in a Throwaway Culture
by Haley Stewart
What it's about:
Recognizing that the pace and values of modern culture don't match those of God and choosing to live differently. Stewart weaves her own family's story into the book but this read is just as much theology as it is memoir.
Who it's for:
Christians seeking a simpler life more focused on things that are truly significant.
What I liked:
I always adore a good simplicity read. This one is extra special to my heart because the simplifying is motivated by focusing on the priorities of God.
What I didn't:
Stewart is Catholic and I am a Protestant so there were some faith practices that were unfamiliar to me. I suppose saying I didn't like that feels a bit strong but there were simply things that I didn't relate to, like when she quoted the Pope. Although I can't say I disagreed with what the Pope said!
The simple things in life are the best things, the true God gifts and we are wise to pursue them.
