Book Blog Tour Stop - Enough: Finding More By Living With Less by Will Davis, Jr.

About The Book:

Do you have enough?
Our culture pushes us to strive for more--more money, more stuff, more clout. But how much is enough? And how do we know when we have too much of a good thing?

In this provocative book, Will Davis Jr. challenges us to discover the peace that comes through contentment with what we have and compassion for those in need. Through surprising statistics, scriptural insight, and powerful real-life stories, Davis shows us the rewards of living with less in order to be more and do more with our lives.

What Others Have Said About "Enough":

"Enough challenges the status quo pursuit of the American dream, which has produced less-than-stellar results. If your goal is actually feeling wealthy, secure, and as though you finally have enough, then Will's book is a must-read!"--John Burke, author of No Perfect People Allowed

"If you've ever been guilty of searching for enough in all the wrong places (ahem, like me!), I dare you to read this book. Be warned that it will make you squirm in places, but in a good way--a very good way."--Vicki Courtney, author of 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter

"I am so thankful for this book. I have been thinking about downsizing my lifestyle and freeing myself from the maintenance of too much accumulated stuff! After reading Will's book, I am convicted to actually do it."--Nancy Turner, host of This Is the Day for Moody Radio

"As usual, Will Davis Jr. has challenged me at a deep level. I am truly inspired to rethink my perspective on working, money, and the pursuit of the American dream. I highly recommend Enough for every American!"--Debbie Chavez, talk show host at faithplace.org; women's conference speaker

How much is enough?  This book by Will Davis is an extremely thought-provoking one in that he really makes the reader sit down and ask themselves - How much is actually enough?

My husband and I have been downsizing for the past few years - eliminating things we have no need for, culling through possessions and truly realizing how much we really need to be happy.  But after reading Will Davis' book, I wonder how much more we can do without - and then also, how much more we can do for others.

Written in plain, easy-to-understand language, and filled with not only Will's experiences, but experiences of his friends, his congregation, and even his family - "Enough" is a fascinating book that deserves to be examined slowly, thoughtfully and with a lot of prayer.

I highly recommend it.
