Too much stuff. Too many activities. Too much exhaustion. Too much stress. How can we sift through the busyness, the mess, and the stress to uncover the abundant life God offers? In Uncluttered, one woman shares her journey from a life of stress, stuff, and burnout to one of peace, space, and fulfillment. You'll learn tips for paring down your possessions, simplifying your schedule, and practicing the ancient art of Sabbath.
Uncluttered is not a formula about what "stuff" you need to give up. It's about slowing down long enough for God to remind you of his truth and what it means to be his child.
With humor, wit, and wisdom, Courtney Ellis covers topics like:
"Peace. Less. Still. Enough. Simple. Clear. Rested. Read Uncluttered." --John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church and author of I'd Like You More if You Were More Like Me
"The key to healthy, sustainable, contagious faith is our commitment to living simpler, quieter, more uncluttered lives. This is the urgent and soul-nourishing message of Uncluttered." --Brett McCracken, senior editor at The Gospel Coalition
"With disarming candor, sly humor and the empathy of the pastor and spiritual counselor that she is, Courtney Ellis has given us a gift." --Tod Bolsinger, Vice President & Chief of Leadership Formation, Fuller Seminary
"Uncluttered is a funny, nonjudgmental, down-to-earth guide not just for clearing out junk, but for laying hold of freedom in order to perceive God and abide with him." Aubry G. Smith, author of Holy Labor: How Childbirth Shapes a Woman's Soul
