Have you ever felt like you were running a race you couldn’t win in life? Like there was always something more to buy or to achieve in order for you to feel like you had “made it”?
In this book, I share how my heart changed and I began to find real, lasting peace, abundance, and joy through focusing on what matters most and disregarding the rest.
During one year of not shopping for non-consumable goods, our family of five not only survived, but actually emerged fundamentally changed for the better. We awoke to the reality of our freedom and the possibilities that lived just beyond understanding that we got to choose what we wanted in life.
In the candid memoir, I share narratives from our own experience, as well as practical tips, lists, and even activities designed for self-reflection and practical application of the messages the book contains.
Each chapter also includes workbook-style pages for reflection, inspiration, and application of the principles shared within.
Some of the more than 150 five star reviews for More Than Enough:
“Miranda’s book allowed me to slow down, to really appreciate the world around me. To invest in experiences and not things. To be grateful and patient. To really focus on the things that matter in life (SPOILER: they are not literal things)
She also taught many amazing life lessons. To screw perfectionism “I have grown up measuring myself by effort and not achievement” you don’t fail if you mess up one day. Messing up doesn’t matter—it’s not all or nothing, the destination doesn’t matter what matters is the journey, the daily effort and picking yourself back up when you fail.”
“This book was a friendly reminder of abundance when I needed it most. Miranda has a really beautiful reflection on life and both her podcast and book are very uplifting. I listened through the audiobook and loved it.”
“I absolutely devoured this book. It’s a quick read. I’ve always loved the idea of minimalism but found it to be super impractical and unapproachable with a family of young children. This book shares the Anderson’s story of not buying non-consumable goods for a year in favor of having more experiences, which is interesting in and of itself. The part I liked best though is that the author organized it with principles and then worksheets at the end of each chapter and variety of ideas on how you could apply that principle from super simple to more involved. Literally anyone could read this book and get something from it. So I picked a couple things that felt good to me and it’s been awesome. The overall message of more than enough applies to so many areas of life. It’s so refreshing in a world that tells us we won’t be happy until…X, to hear that we have enough, we do enough, and we are enough.”
“I love this book so much! Minimalism has always been attractive to me, but as a mother of multiple children it felt overwhelming and nearly impossible at first… I love Miranda’s perspective and insight on the subject of PRACTICAL minimalism and families. I love the focus on gratitude and experience. There are so many golden nuggets of wisdom in this book. I think there are valuable lessons here whether you consider yourself a minimalist or not. Our society is definitely one of obsessive consumerism and comparison and I think we could all benefit from a little less stuff and more adventure! :)”
“Now, what I really like about this book is that it’s part memoir, part workbook, and a little bit of everything else in between. Miranda is not advertising that everyone stops buying things; however, she instead encourages readers to take a step back and look at everything that we have in life, rather than what we don’t have.
I know that this is a pretty hot topic in general right now, with the boom of influencers on Instagram, and them making money off of telling everyone to buy, buy, buy. The pressure to purchase things is not just coming from advertisements, but it’s now coming from people whose lives we simply follow with interest (some whom we know in person, and others that we have never met).
That’s why Miranda’s book comes at such a timely moment. It’s an encouragement to try and focus more on things that have lasting value, and pay less attention to the many things surrounding us that we are told that we need, or worse, want.”
