    1. If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor)the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. Therein lies our dilemma. Moses does not offer any quick fixes in living on less. But she does offer a calling to examine how we consume. What we consume affects our brothers and sisters. The chocolate we eat, the clothes we wear, th [...]


    2. More Than Enough by Lee Hull Moses is a discussion of very pertinent topics for both Christians and Non-Christians alike. Moses discusses topics such as: simple living, use of financial resources, sustainable use of energy and water, growing our own food, and even making our clothes! She explains that these things may or may not be easily changed or even possible for most people-including herself. Readers are reminded that hypocrisy is inevitable in some ways because we can never perfectly grasp [...]


    3. Reviewed for THC Reviews"4.5 stars" More Than Enough was recommended by Erin Wathen, the former pastor of the church I attend, when we Skyped with her during our regular book club meeting after reading her new book. As a result More Than Enough was chosen as our latest book club read. I’m not quite sure why I had this impression, but when I picked it up, I thought it was going to be more of a book with tips and suggestions for simpler living. So, if this is an impression that you’ve gotten, [...]


    4. Ever look around your life and feel overwhelmed with gratitude for everything you have? Sure, nothing is perfect, but if you have a safe place to live, food on the table and clothes to wear, the reality is that life is pretty good. That's not true for many people in the world and you may wonder; How do we live in a way that honor God and shows gratitude for the good life we are living in the midst or a world full of pain and brokenness?I enjoyed this book; the author tells some important stories [...]


    5. As a pastor who leads several small-groups, I am so thrilled to have the possibility of a book like More Than Enough to add to our discussions. As a mom and a wife and a consumer, I am grateful for the practical and challenging reflections by Lee Hull Moses about living faithfully in our present culture of excess. Her tone is spot-on: realistic and questioning and hopeful at the same time. The way that Lee weaves her personal stories alongside thoughtful biblical and theological reflections trul [...]


    6. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I was really excited to win and receive this book. I have a tendency to overspend and to always want more stuff. Not a healthy way to live. I was really hoping this book would offer some strategies to change this kind of life. The author did offer a lot of great info and perspective, but unfortunately, it didn't go any further than that. The perspective is nice, but you have to find a way to apply it in your own life and in you [...]


    7. Spoiler alert: "I wish I could tell you what the answers are to all these questions about living well. I especially wish I could tell you that I'd made all the 'right' choices about living simply and money and owning stuff and advocacy and getting to know our neighbors. But I haven't."


    8. A wonderful book speaking frankly and thoughtfully to the questions of consumerism and the longing for simple living so many of us middle-class Americans share. Moses uses Scripture, the desert mothers and fathers, contemporary writers like James Baldwin and Barbara Kingsolver, theologians like Marcus Borg and Sam Wells, and movies, as well as her own experiences at home, traveling abroad, and leading her small congregation in Greensboro, North Carolina to wrestle with this question as a Christi [...]


    9. I really enjoyed this book. The author is so honest about the disconnect between who she wants to be as a responsible conscientious Christian, and between how things actually are for a busy professional. The writing is lovely. I love that she talks about sin and confession, and the book is interspersed with short prayers and Biblical references. It feels like a conversation with someone who is wrestling with the things I wrestle with, taking the gospel seriously, but remembering to take herself [...]


    10. I hunger for more and more literature that builds my faith as a Christian. So when I was offered this book to read, I jumped at the chance. Hoping it would open my eyes to a new perspective regarding prosperity.Unfortunately, I was wrong.This book really did nothing more than put me to sleep. It was an accurate depiction of life as I already live it with pressure from every which way to obtain more and more stuff and well, I gained nothing new from reading this.


    11. (Note: I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.)Near the end of More than Enough, Lee Hull Moses explains her hope: "When I described this book to people, when I said that I was exploring what it means to live faithfully with abundance in the face of inequality and injustice, I generally got the same response: 'Great! Tell me when you've figured it out.' This will come as no surprise: I didn't figure it all out."What she did do was reflect on her own struggles with living si [...]


    12. The opening pages of this book launch a salvo of queries at the reader. How can there be too opposites that meet in the middle? Starving kids in the same state as the upper class? First world problems when clean water is missing in many parts of the world? The dichotomy presented is the same struggle that exists in basic theological questions - how can there be a man who was G-d? How can heaven meet earth? These opposing ends meet the middle in what is referred to the mandorla - an almond-shaped [...]


    13. I love the idea of this book, but right now I just can't seem to focus on it. I'll pick it up again some day.I received an ARC from NetGalley.


    14. Each year that I "mature", I find myself minimizing my life more. This wonderful book, which I kept seeing posts about on Facebook from my Brite Divinity friends, gave me lots to think about for the coming year. Her good humor and ability to not make it a self-help, do this and all will be well book made it an excellent read. I highly recommend. -----From the publisher: Ever look around your life and feel overwhelmed with gratitude for everything you have? Sure, nothing is perfect, but if you ha [...]


    15. More Than Enough by Lee Hull Moses is a book that I will go back in a few weeks and re-read. While it was a short, very readable book, it also had a lot of depth to it. The author does not presume to have the answer to when more is enough. She explores various aspects of daily life in the context of different geographical areas and cultures. She gives examples from her life that most Americans have experienced. Her thought processes while shopping at Costco was totally relatable. Do we really ne [...]


    16. This book was not my favorite of this type of book. The author attempts to explain how to live well, but by focusing on simplifying life and using resources responsibly. I have read other "lifestyle" books by Christian and non-Christian authors that I have enjoyed more.I struggled with the author's voice in this book. She started off the book explaining that she wasn't judging the reader and acknowledging that she is privileged when you weigh her life against others' lives, I guess to set me at [...]


    17. Note: I received an e-galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.Lee Hull Moses puzzles through the questions that arise as a Christian upon realizing that, all things considered, one is doing quite well by worldly standards. Then what? How much is enough? How much is too much? In this book, the author uses her own stories as jumping off points to express topics like the complexities of modern American family life in contrast to "simple living", what Sabbath might look like for those o [...]


    18. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I got way more than I expected from this book. The stories told in this book really makes you look at your own life and consider your own views. I changed my perspective on quite a few things. I also became fascinated with the scripture references. As a preacher's kid I have heard them for a long time. But the author managed to open my eyes to a few things I didn't realize. I love learning something new when I read the Bible. It al [...]


    19. This was a quick but good read. The author takes on a question many of us ask from time to time about how we help change the world and how it is that both so much good exists while so much bad still exists too. Questions like why are there still hungry people when we have enough food to feed everyone? She was genuine in showing that she's not perfect, just like the rest of us and that she struggles with having privilege, while trying to help others who don't. There was some practical advice and [...]


    20. Lee Hull Moses is winsome, wise, and funny - and so is More Than Enough. It will be a wonderful resource to families who are discerning how to live faithfully in a world where nothing ever seems very simple. Lee is a gentle, nonjudgmental narrator who nevertheless manages to make you rethink just about everything. She jokes that her book doesn't have a very satisfying ending, but her resistance to easy answers and tidy conclusions is so refreshing - especially since it is paired with a word of h [...]




    21. This book is relatable and down to earth. Lee illustrates many ways to live faithfully through simple living, buying responsibly, advocating for justice, and connecting to the community of the church. Simple living is described as a way of life; and Lee differentiates this from a list of rules, steps or guide for living more with less.Lee explains why it is important to have balance between living faithfully and abundantly. She also highlights the need to have grace for oneself and others rather [...]
