Don t Settle for More
Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter, and we tire of cleaning and managing and organizing.
While excess consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, fancier technology, and cluttered homes, it never brings happiness. Rather, it results in a desire for more. It redirects our God-given passions to things that can never fulfill. And it distracts us from the very life we wish we were living.
But it doesn t have to be this way.
In "The More of Less," Joshua Becker, helps you .
recognize the life-giving benefits of owning less
realize how all the stuff you own is keeping you from pursuing your dreams
craft a personal, practical approach to decluttering your home and life
experience the joys of generosity
learn why the best part of minimalism isn t a clean house, it s a full life
The beauty of minimalism isn t in what it takes away. It s in what it gives."

Review quote

I m so inspired by this wise, timely book! Like so many people right now, I m drawn to the idea of minimalism, but, to be honest, I find myself pretty deeply entrenched in bad habits of clutter and accumulation. I m so thankful for Joshua s clear vision for what life can be when we choose to surround ourselves with less stuff, and how in doing so, we create more space for living and dreaming.
Shauna Niequist, author of "Bread & Wine" and "Savor"
Joshua Becker is a distinguished voice in the modern minimalism movement. Engaging and nonjudgmental, "The More of Less" masterfully articulates the benefits and the joy of living with less.
Joshua Fields Millburn, creator of and coauthor of "Everything That Remains"
Those of us attracted to minimalism often face a challenge: how do we invite our friends and family into this liberating way of life? With amusing stories and on-the-ground practical advice, Joshua explains how to make your minimalist journey a group endeavor. There are going to be a lot of happy children, spouses, and friends because of this book.
Dave Bruno, author of "The 100 Thing Challenge"
I ve enjoyed Joshua Becker s message and writing for many years, and this is by far his best work. His very practical advice for living with less, together with moving stories from real people living with less, provides the tools and motivation for powerful change. I m in awe of how Becker weaves the step-by-step how to with the moving why to of minimalism.
Courtney Carver, author of "Simple Ways to Be More With Less"
I opened "The More of Less" expecting to learn ways to minimize my excess. Instead, I learned freeing steps to maximize my life. Using relatable anecdotes and enlightening revelations, Joshua Becker reveals an innovative approach that adds more meaning to our schedules, personal well-being, relationships, finances, and passions. Don t let the word minimalist intimidate you. The More of Less helps you craft your own style of minimalism that aligns with your purpose. There are no drastic measures required, and no set plans you must follow. Open this book to unburden your life and give oxygen to what matters most.
Rachel Macy Stafford, "New York Times" best-selling author of "Hands Free Mama" and "Hands Free Life"
This is it the book that will change your life with a surprisingly simple solution: Less can actually mean more. A whole lot more.
Jeff Goins, best-selling author of "The Art of Work"
In his latest book, "The More of Less," Joshua Becker leads you through the steps of finding the life you want by getting to the heart of what you need. If you have been looking for a practical, actionable guide to help you find a simpler and more fulfilling way of living, this is the book you need.
Patrick Rhone, author of "enough"
People are motivated to change when they grasp three important things: the clear reasons change is needed (the why ), the clear path of next steps that can be taken (the how ), and a clear sense that the one calling for change is credible (the who ). This definitive book on minimalism offers all three pieces. And because Joshua is a longtime practitioner with sound credibility, the reader can rest assured that whatever steps they ll be taking will lead to a richer life of joy, generosity, meaning, and wholeness. If you can read only one book on minimalism, this should be it.
Richard Dahlstrom, senior pastor of Bethany Community Church, Seattle, WA
Often our biggest fear about living with less is that we might miss out, but Joshua Becker explains with crystal clarity just how much we have to gain from the minimalist lifestyle. Packed with actionable ideas you can apply today, "The More of Less" is the perfect balance of instruction and motivation. A must read!
Ruth Soukup, New York Times best-selling author of "Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind, and Soul"
"The More of Less" is a great guide to starting and maintaining a life of simplicity.
Ryan Nicodemus, creator of and co-author of "Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life"
Joshua Becker is simply promoting a way to do life that is more than attractive it s a really big idea that will radically change lives. Read it.
Jeff Shinabarger, founder of Plywood People and author of" More or Less: Choosing a Lifestyle of Excessive Generosity"
Joshua Becker is one of my heroes. "The More of Less" shows all of us how to embrace the joy of less and in so doing how to live a richer, deeper, and more intentional life. If you re struggling with too much stuff and too little happiness, here is your must-read.
Peter Walsh, author of the New York Times bestseller" It s All Too Much"
Despite all the books and blogs I ve read about minimalism, and in spite of all the minimalists I ve talked to, I came to "The More of Less" a skeptic. Why say yes to an idea that says you ve got to have less? By the end, though thanks to Joshua Becker s gentle, simple, persuasive way of explaining things I d thrown out a bunch of stuff, and I was a convert. He s right; minimalism isn t about less, it s about more.
James Wallman, author of "Stuffocation""
