About The Little Way of LIving with Less by Laraine Bennett

From the publisher, Sophia Institute Press

Do your possessions “spark joy”? In our  materialistic society, we are often plagued with the slow torture of  accumulated stuff, which creates disharmony, prevents us from living in  the present moment, and keeps us from setting our eyes upon Heaven.

The Little Way of Living with Less is a spiritual journey guided by  St. Thérèse of Lisieux toward a “less is more” manner of living. It  shares one couple's effort to downsize, declutter, and detach — and the  challenge of growing in virtues that is associated with this process.  Indeed, this book serves as a practical antidote to the consumerism and  commodification of daily home life today.

Through the words and example of the Little Flower, you will find  peace, joy, and security as you learn how to overcome disorder — whether  physical, mental, or spiritual. St. Thérèse will help form you in  single-mindedness to complete the ordinary with extraordinary, selfless  love, and you'll soon find yourself becoming intentional about making  God the center of your life and your home.

Best of all, you will discover that “everything is grace” (St.  Thérèse) and will begin thanking God for your many blessings and  experiencing His miraculous favors with greater mindfulness. Inspired by  the Little Way, you will more confidently seek the things above and  “choose all” in holiness. Let “the greatest saint of modern times” show  you how to:

  • Let go of      clutter, unhealthy habits, vices, and sin
  • Simplify your      life and manage fear and anxiety
  • Create order,      beauty, and vibrancy in your home
  • Detach from the      world, cultivate poverty of spirit, and attain Heaven
  • Find the      happiness and gratitude that come from within
  • Become humble      and small, trusting in the mercy of God

By living an integrated life that is free of materialistic pleasures,  you will develop the freedom of a child of God to abandon yourself to  the Father's will. Enter into the Heart of Jesus and make room in your  heart to experience the wonders of His love!
