You'll be thankful you chose this book!" -Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Best Yes.

From the Author
You're not just overwhelmed bythe physical clutter that has been filling up your home, but stressedout by an overbooked schedule that sometimes feels out of your control.You're frustrated by trying to live up to other people's expectations of what your home is supposed to be. You're tired of guilt and exhaustedby relationships that seem to suck the life out of you.
And thevery last thing you want is a book that will make you feel worse aboutyourself, or one that's going to hand you another massive list of things to do.
Believe me, I have been there too.
The thingis--I'm not an expert on decluttering or a professional organizer. Idon't have some crazy unattainable ideal of what our homes should be, or what our schedules should look like. I'm a mom, wife, daughter,friend, and small business owner who is busy trying to juggle all thepieces of an often chaotic life, just like you.
And Unstuffed was not written to make anyone feel guilty about a home that is lessthan perfect. Instead, it offers a strong dose of encouragement through personal stories and practical, easy-to-implement ideas for taking back your life from the STUFF that is weighing you down.
It offerspermission to NOT do it all, and much-needed relief from the constantpressure to perform. It's room for your soul to breathe, and I trulycan't wait to share it with you.
My hope and prayer for this book is that it will set you free--free from guilt, free from overwhelm, and free from the expectations of a world consumed by STUFF.
