Do you ever feel caught in an endless cycle of working harder and longer to get more while enjoying life less? The Stewart family did—and they decided to make a radical change. Popular Catholic blogger and podcaster Haley Stewart explains how a year-long internship on a sustainable farm changed her family’s life for the better, allowing them to live gospel values more intentionally.

When Haley Stewart married her bee-keeping sweetheart, Daniel, they dreamed of a life centered on home and family. But as the children arrived and Daniel was forced to work longer hours at a job he liked less and less, they dared to break free from the unending cycle of getting more yet feeling unfufilled. They sold their Florida home and retreated to Texas to live on a farm with a compost toilet and 650 square feet of space for a family of five. Surprisingly, they found that they had never been happier.

In The Grace of Enough, Stewart shares essential elements of intentional Christian living that her family discovered during that extraordinary year on the farm and that they continue to practice today. You, too, will be inspired to:

  • live simply
  • offer hospitality
  • revive food culture and the family table
  • reconnect with the land
  • nurture community
  • prioritize beauty
  • develop a sense of wonder
  • be intentional about technology
  • seek authentic intimacy
  • center life around home, family, and relationships

Drawing from Pope Francis’s encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si’, Stewart identifies elements of Catholic social teaching that will enhance your life and create a ripple effect of grace to help you overcome the effects of today’s “throwaway” culture and experience a deeper satisfaction and stronger faith.

Editorial Reviews

"An antidote to throwaway culture; a blueprint to living a fulfilling life." --From the foreword by Brandon Vogt, Content director of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and author of Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too)

"If you've ever yearned to make radical changes to your life that will bring you lasting satisfaction, this is the book for you." --Jennifer Fulwiler, SiriusXM radio host and author of Something Other Than God

"Our culture has proposed that the path to freedom entails working harder in order to have more. Our faith proposes a radically different idea. In this lovely book, Haley Stewart explores the idea of living simply—and it’s an idea that has the power to change the world." --Tommy Tighe, Editor of The Catholic Hipster Handbook

"The collective conscious of our culture is desperately crying out for this message. Haley Stewart shows how to practically and bravely embrace the profound simplicity of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Stewart's book connects with our longings for living the simple but abundant joy of Christ." --Leah Darrow, International Catholic speaker and author of The Other Side of Beauty

"We loved this fantastic story of faith, family, and discovering the joy of living on less. This book is a spiritually inspiring reminder to pause and reflect on how we can step away from the throwaway culture." --Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet, Authors of Divine Mercy for Moms

"What sort of life is God calling you to live? That’s the question Haley Stewart’s delightful, yet challenging, new book invites you to consider. Though your answer may be different from hers, her honest sharing and insightful suggestions will invite you into a rich reflection on your own experience that will help you recognize that God is always enough." --Mary Elizabeth Sperry, Author of Making Room for God

"Prophets wake us to our true state, call upon us to be better than we are, and demand that we think hard about the life we are living. And thus we shy away from prophets. Haley Stewart, however, won’t let us escape so easily. Hers is a genuinely prophetic voice, but one so full of fun and the sheer joy of living that she thoroughly charmed and convinced me. A wonderfully wise book for our confusing and misguided era." --Paula Huston, Author of One Ordinary Sunday
