Description

In her newest book, bestselling author and founder of Simplified(R) Emily Ley brings a revolutionary exploration of how to live a life of more in a world that often overwhelms to the point of burnout. Emily empathizes with readers in the throes of exhaustion and provides tools for nourishing their spirits and achieving a life where less becomes more.

Statistics don't lie. People today are more fatigued, burned out, and overwhelmed than ever. Smartphones constantly ping and alert and demand our attention. And social media can eat up hours of our days with mindless scrolling and tapping while leaving many feeling empty and lonely. Add to that family commitments, work that is accessible around the clock, and overscheduling, and you have a life that can feel unmanageable and frantic . . . even running on empty.

Emily Ley, author of bestselling Grace, Not Perfection and A Simplified Life, is here to tell you that there's more--so much more. In this book, Emily Ley takes readers on a journey out of that empty place and shows them how to fill their wells with the nourishment that only true connection can provide. She also presents some radical concepts that push against the tethers of modern life, with the promise that more of the good stuff comes when we say yes to less of what keeps us empty:

  • Less rush, more rhythm
  • Less great, more good
  • Less fake, more real
  • Less noise, more singing
  • Less outside world, more inside family
  • Less correction, more conversation
  • Less talking at, more dreaming with
  • Less stuff, more treasures
  • Less chasing, more cherishing
  • Less activities, more traditions

Getting to more might require some outside-the-box changes, some unraveling of the patterns readers have adopted, some reworking of the day-to-day so that they can build a life based on their core values instead of slipping into a life dictated by society or what's "normal." Because we weren't made for normal. We were made for more--for a life of fullness, dreaming, and lasting joy.

In addition to her planners, her first two books are treasures. Grace Not Perfection spoke to me deeply on a soul level & A Simplified Life provided the tactical tidbits to get me on the path to a slower pace. But man, When Less Becomes More pulled me from the tip of the iceberg and soaked through to my bones. Maybe it's because she dedicated it to her daughter. Or maybe it's because as women we are so uniquely tasked with finding the fine line between this life of connectedness and overwhelm to one of simple and good. Emily's words resonate deeply with a message that is so incredibly needed in this world. What I love the most is that she moves into a place of genuine questioning about just how to achieve a life of slow, simple, and good. She does not claim to have all the answers, she acknowledges her access to resources and privilege as well as her success, but she doesn't she stop there - she orients us to the Gospel and the reality that God wants us to be so much more than what we think is "perfect" and that we were made for so much more. Truly a delightful read, and one I can't wait to pass along to my own daughter. *I was provided an advanced copy of this book from the publisher, however all opinions are my own.

When Less Becomes More is what we all need. Emily beautifully discusses modern day burnout like no one else. She makes no claims at being an expert, but is in the trenches with us. Mothering, working, doing all the things. She will speak to your soul and leave you wanting more. As I made my way through each chapter, I could feel my own anxiety lesson. Not only was it amazing to read her experiences and realize that I wasn’t alone in my daily struggles, but the way she broke it down by sections helped me identify where I could make changes in my life to slow down and stop the seemingly unending hamster wheel marathon. It’s a book you will want to read and reread for years to come.

Emily Ley does it again with a fantastic book! When Less Becomes More is for any woman that is feeling overwhelmed or run down- Emily’s words are heart warming and easily applied to real life to help us make space for what is important. The book itself is beautiful and the words inside even more beautiful. I highly recommend to anyone in any season of life (student, young professional, mother, etc.) as this book is a treasure!

Reading When Less Become More felt more like a conversation with Emily Ley rather than the reading of another self-help book. The layout of the text makes for an easy read and the photos are beautiful. It is so refreshing to know that I am not the only one who struggles with feeling overwhelmed. We are all made for more.

What an amazing and needed message! It is so freeing to have permission to do life differently, to realize we have choices to create the life we truly want and to be reminded that things and hustle just don't deliver at the end of the day. I appreciated the practical tips and inspired by her words. Good read!!

Less Really is More

This book along with anything Emily Ley writes is a constant reminder that less really is more. So much of our lives are filled with constantly being busy and always on the go. Even as someone without kids I found so many ways to find this book applicable in my life. I'm so encouraged to say "no," work to slow down my life, and really embrace the things that mean the most to me instead of all the things I "have to do." If you're busy and constantly feeling overwhelmed - give this book a read. I think it will bless your soul and give you permission to have less of all the things and more of only the things that truly matter.

This book is fantastically written, and such a beautiful book! But it goes more than surface-deep! You will feel encouraged & heard as you read this book, and you will find that so many others are having similar struggles & stresses that you are! Emily is so raw & real, and I love how she isn't afraid to say it like it is, call it all out on the table, so that we can MAKE A CHANGE! We don't have to live like this!!! Thank you, Emily, for this book & for the heart behind your entire company!! You are making this world a better place one woman at a time!
