Hey there! Welcome back to the Just One Small Thing Podcast. One of my good friends is joining us this week, the amazing Haley Stewart. Haley is a wife, mother, Catholic writer, and podcaster. You likely know her from her blog, Carrots for Michaelmas, or her podcast, Fountains of Carrots. Haley is a remarkable, engaging, faith-filled lady, and I know you are going to love this episode with her.
Haley is joining us on the podcast to talk about her new book, The Grace of Enough: Pursuing Less and Living More in a Throwaway Culture.
The Grace of Enough chronicles Haley and her family’s decision to radically change their lives. Tired of the rat-race of typical urban life, Haley and her family decided to sell their house, quit their jobs, and move their family half-way across the country for a year of simple living on a farm. Based on this experience and their Catholic Faith, after leaving the farm, the Stewarts created a new life for themselves that focuses on what is simple and true and beautiful. Reading this book will offer an important and powerful challenge for all families wondering if “this is it?”.
Because I just can’t help myself, Haley and I talk about just one important point she make in this book (there are many!). We discuss why it is so important that we and our children experience farm life and animals.
The Grace of Enough hits on MANY topics important to the life of a Catholic parent. Here are just a few of them:
- The Freedom of Having Less
- Love of the Land
- True Beauty
- Creating a School of Love in our Homes
- Creating Community
- The Generous Love of NFP
- Teaching Our Children to Love Generously
- Finding Hope in a Dark Work
Because this book covers so many great topics, I thought this book would be really fun to discuss in a bookclub–and YOU’RE INVITED to join! It will be a live bookclub hosted in a private Facebook group (if you are a Catholic Lady, click here to be added: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1695487650680941/).
The Bookclub will be held on Oct 25th at 8pm Central. And Haley will be there! So, get the book (right here), read as much as you can, and join us for a fun and important conversation! See you there!
Thank you for all of your love and support!
Your sister in the small things,
