    I lingered over this book-ha, I bet the author would like that! It was a good read and I took to heart a lot of what she said. Great way to jump start your journey of simplicity. Will be a book I refer to again and again. ...

    Summer Bingo - Non-fiction. ...

    Quick and easy read, but nothing super compelling. The only idea that stuck out to me as truly original was ?Project 333,? and that?s just not something I?m interested in trying. ...

    This is such a lovely book full of inspiration that meets you exactly where you are. I will forever keep it on hand to turn to when I need some encouragement, guidance and kind words. ...

    This book eases you into the idea that doing less and having less can ease the stresses of life - just taking 5 minutes away from the HUGE to do lists can help you relax enough to see what needs doing, what should be done and what quite frankly can be left! ...

    The author sent me an advanced copy of this book before I interviewed her on my podcast. I can honestly say I loved it! The book is full of love, peace, and forgiveness. I've read many decluttering books and books about simplifying your life, but this one stands out not for the ?how?...

    ~SIMPLIFY~ I have shared with you before that like many people in this day and age, I'm on a journey to simplify. Simplify my house, simplify my life, simplify my schedule, simplify my mind. There's too much STUFF taking up too much SPACE that sucks away from LIFE. Anyone else feel th...

    This is one of those books that I'm not quite sure what to focus on. It felt like it belonged in two separate categories. If this was just an autobiography, I could rate this 3.5 and I'd be okay rounding up to 4 stars. I liked her personal story and I could appreciate her navigation of...

    I received a copy of this book from the publishing house. All thoughts & opinions are my own. Soulful Simplicity embraces the power in simplicity and it is done effectively through Carver?s own journey towards a simpler life. If you aren?t familiar with Courtney, she is...

    I love that Courtney Carver takes a deep dive into her life before and after she discovered simplicity. She brings us along with her, allowing us to honor our own unique journey as we see ourselves in her story and the lessons along the way. It's a book about the why and how simplicity...

    I read this as part inspiration, part preparation, for my intended summer clean-a-thon. I didn't want to read Kondo's book about debating the joyfulness of every object, so I chose Carver's instead. I have to say, as these kinds of books go, it worked. Although I'm not quite prepared, ...

    This may be one of the few "how to simplify your life" books that is not all about cluttering and tidying up. In sharing her own journey to a simple lifestyle, Courtney Carver encourages the reader to consider the "why's" behind a desire for simplicity more than the "how's," and sugges...

    Good stuff! Reading this cheers me on with my efforts to get rid of needless stuff (tangible or not) and focus on more important things. ...

    This was a great read for someone who is looking to simplify their lives. Courtney Carver explains why she had to simply her life and how she did it. This book was published before the whole "Spark Joy" phenomenon, and pretty much follows the same premise. When you need to buy things t...

    I enjoyed this book and practical tips. I was in the mood to read a simplify your life style book so this fit well. ...

    Best book I've read regarding a simple lifestyle. No preaching, just great sharing on the author's part. I will take her outline and fit it to my own life. Her writing style flows. Very useful information. ...

    My friend Jimmi and I heard Courtney Carver speak earlier this week. Her talk and her book were pleasing, and reminded me of the happiness found in living with less. ...

    I really enjoyed the way Carver shared her experiences in this book. I?ve read many books on the subjects of decluttering and minimalism, so there was nothing particularly new here for me except the way Carver has personally created a life of less stuff. I thought her writing and her...

    This is a book that is about more than just getting rid of clutter. It's actually about simplifying your life in order to live the life you really want to live and be the person you want to be. It's about simplifying to in order to make space to live meaningfully (whatever that looks l...

    This is a book that is about more than just getting rid of clutter. It's actually about simplifying your life in order to live the life you really want to live and be the person you want to be. It's about simplifying to in order to make space to live meaningfully (whatever that looks l...

    This is a wonderful book for getting started on the path you want to walk down. I love her very moderate, you choose what works for you, style. So often Minimalists have an extremist view of how to handle stuff. But C. Carver is much more realistic. I took lots of notes: Pg 38 "How...

    The author sent me an advanced copy of this book before I interviewed her on my podcast. I can honestly say I loved it! The book is full of love, peace, and forgiveness. I've read many decluttering books and books about simplifying your life, but this one stands out not for the ?how?...

    ~SIMPLIFY~ I have shared with you before that like many people in this day and age, I'm on a journey to simplify. Simplify my house, simplify my life, simplify my schedule, simplify my mind. There's too much STUFF taking up too much SPACE that sucks away from LIFE. Anyone else feel th...

    This is one of those books that I'm not quite sure what to focus on. It felt like it belonged in two separate categories. If this was just an autobiography, I could rate this 3.5 and I'd be okay rounding up to 4 stars. I liked her personal story and I could appreciate her navigation of...

    I read this as part inspiration, part preparation, for my intended summer clean-a-thon. I didn't want to read Kondo's book about debating the joyfulness of every object, so I chose Carver's instead. I have to say, as these kinds of books go, it worked. Although I'm not quite prepared, ...

    This book eases you into the idea that doing less and having less can ease the stresses of life - just taking 5 minutes away from the HUGE to do lists can help you relax enough to see what needs doing, what should be done and what quite frankly can be left! ...

    This is a book that is about more than just getting rid of clutter. It's actually about simplifying your life in order to live the life you really want to live and be the person you want to be. It's about simplifying to in order to make space to live meaningfully (whatever that looks l...

    This is a wonderful book for getting started on the path you want to walk down. I love her very moderate, you choose what works for you, style. So often Minimalists have an extremist view of how to handle stuff. But C. Carver is much more realistic. I took lots of notes: Pg 38 "How...

    I enjoyed this book. I love that the author first talked about her life and what lead her on a path to simplicity. I think that is a big part of simplifying your life. Understand it. Understand the things that are taking too much of your time and energy, and then work on them. I really...

    You know when you pick up the perfect book at the perfect time? That was this. Clearly articulated many of my goals and the issues with why they?re so hard to achieve. But now I?m inspired and have some practical guidelines to help better prioritize my time. Right off the bat: ?n...

    This is a great Whitman?s Sampler of organizational/minimalist strategies. It took a few chapters to get into the good stuff, but I would recommend it to anyone looking to start a journey to life simplification. While it doesn?t state it in the description, Carver is the originator...

    The author sent me an advanced copy of this book before I interviewed her on my podcast. I can honestly say I loved it! The book is full of love, peace, and forgiveness. I've read many decluttering books and books about simplifying your life, but this one stands out not for the ?how?...

    ~SIMPLIFY~ I have shared with you before that like many people in this day and age, I'm on a journey to simplify. Simplify my house, simplify my life, simplify my schedule, simplify my mind. There's too much STUFF taking up too much SPACE that sucks away from LIFE. Anyone else feel th...

    This is one of those books that I'm not quite sure what to focus on. It felt like it belonged in two separate categories. If this was just an autobiography, I could rate this 3.5 and I'd be okay rounding up to 4 stars. I liked her personal story and I could appreciate her navigation of...

    I received a copy of this book from the publishing house. All thoughts & opinions are my own. Soulful Simplicity embraces the power in simplicity and it is done effectively through Carver?s own journey towards a simpler life. If you aren?t familiar with Courtney, she is...

    I love that Courtney Carver takes a deep dive into her life before and after she discovered simplicity. She brings us along with her, allowing us to honor our own unique journey as we see ourselves in her story and the lessons along the way. It's a book about the why and how simplicity...

    I read this as part inspiration, part preparation, for my intended summer clean-a-thon. I didn't want to read Kondo's book about debating the joyfulness of every object, so I chose Carver's instead. I have to say, as these kinds of books go, it worked. Although I'm not quite prepared, ...

    ?Simplicity and most big changes are a matter of the heart.? Soulful Simplicity is about listening to your own heart to learn what you need. I loved learning more about Courtney and her story in this book. I also resonated with her theme of ?listening to your heart?. As many...

    This may be one of the few "how to simplify your life" books that is not all about cluttering and tidying up. In sharing her own journey to a simple lifestyle, Courtney Carver encourages the reader to consider the "why's" behind a desire for simplicity more than the "how's," and sugges...

    Good, though others who have read a lot of simplicity and mindfulness books might find this basic. ...

    Good stuff! Reading this cheers me on with my efforts to get rid of needless stuff (tangible or not) and focus on more important things. ...

    This was a great read for someone who is looking to simplify their lives. Courtney Carver explains why she had to simply her life and how she did it. This book was published before the whole "Spark Joy" phenomenon, and pretty much follows the same premise. When you need to buy things t...

    I read Courtney Carver?s blog, Be More with Less, so when I learned she was releasing a book called Soulful Simplicity, it sounded like something I wanted to listen to. (This review is for the audio book.) Soulful Simplicity goes into detail about Courtney being diagnosed with MS...

    3.5 Stars The beginning was more about the why of simplifying,in later chapters she had tips and ideas on how to simplify. Some parts were too spiritualistic, and she talked a lot about listening to your heart and your intuition. ...

    I lingered over this book-ha, I bet the author would like that! It was a good read and I took to heart a lot of what she said. Great way to jump start your journey of simplicity. Will be a book I refer to again and again. ...
