Drawing on the powerful histories of the saints and personal experience, author Paula Huston, a professor, wife, and mother, offers practical guidance to pursuing and achieving spiritual simplicity in a chaotic world. In this book, Huston examines a variety of spiritual practices in the Christian tradition that lead to a simple life. Each chapter introduces a different spiritual practice, including solitude, purity, and generosity, and explores it through historical perspectives and Huston's compelling personal reflections. From Saint Anthony's chosen life of solitude to Saint Catherine of Siena's strength of conviction, Huston tells stories of courageous faith that exemplify the blessed and transformative power of being along with God. Although based on Christian philosophies, Huston's strategies are applicable to people of all faiths.
