Short Synopsis
In The Grace of Enough, Stewart shares essential elements of intentional Christian living that her family discovered during their extraordinary year on a farm and that they continue to practice today.

Full Synopsis
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 unfulfilled. 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.

"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, 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 Hispter Handbook
