Blessed by Less: Clearing Your Life of Clutter by Living Lightlyby Susan V. Vogt
Synopses & Reviews
Susan Vogt knew she had far more stuff in her closets than she needed. So, for Lent one year, Susan took action: she gave away one thing a day for forty days. But what happened during that penitential period surprised her; she became so addicted to identifying unnecessary things in her life that she continued the practice for a full year. Then she began letting go of other baggage—some physical, some emotional—and found that, far from feeling poorer, she felt freer and more fulfilled than ever before. A spiritual place had opened that allowed Susan to unclutter her mind and deepen her faith.
Blessed by Less offers encouragement and inspiration for all who are burdened down by “things” in their homes and hearts but don’t quite know how to begin the process of letting go. Susan includes tips for beginners and challenges for those who’ve been simplifying for years. Rather than making readers feel guilty for all the stuff they’ve accumulated, Susan gently nudges them to see all that they have to gain—physically, emotionally, and most of all spiritually—by living lightly. Practical from start to finish, Blessed by Less shows how one woman’s journey into a simpler, less cluttered life can also be our journey and how taking a spiritual perspective on the matter can lead to abundant blessings we would have otherwise missed.
In Blessed by Less, Susan Vogt discusses what happened when she found herself overburdened and suffocated by all the clutter she was carrying around in her life. She decided one Lent to give away at least one thing every day, but after forty days of living lightly, she felt so good about it that she continued the practice for an entire year. Along the way she discovered that by unburdening herself of “things,” she was also opening up a spiritual space inside herself. By uncluttering her space, she was able to unclutter her mind and find a deeper sense of peace with her faith.
Blessed by Less shows how one woman’s journey into a simpler, less cluttered life can also be our journey and how taking a spiritual perspective on the matter can lead to abundant blessings we would have otherwise missed.
