Publisher's Description

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.

"If you are someone who has encumbered with clutter, Blessed by Less is the practical manual and guide you’ve been looking for."
- Frank Viola, The Deeper Journey

 "Throughout her brief, but helpful book, Vogt provides a variety of suggested practices that we can all easily undertake."

 "[Blessed by Less] is an inspiring book and I think anyone who wants a taste of the spiritual blessings embodied in lightening one’s load will find the book a delight."
- Carl McColman, A Contemplative Faith

"The book’s 122 pages are packed with practical and spiritual wisdom, including ways to consume and hang on to less, become more generous, let go of burdens and intangibles, waste less, save energy, worry less, laugh more, and, as you win, eliminate the 'smug factor.'"
- Kim Shippey, Changing Tides of Health
