Unstuff by Hayley and Michael DiMarco
Unstuff focuses on our culture of "stuff". Material stuff, mental stuff, physical stuff. All this stuff. The question is if its worth it. Do we really need all the stuff we have? Are we honoring God? Or are we pushing Him aside based on our flesh. The authors use their own lives as examples of taking an honest look at where we are in our walk. Then, they look at how to "unstuff" our lives to allow our focus to be on God. All this for His glory, and our benefit.
When I first started reading this book I thought it wasn't written for me. The first part is more based on material possessions and the authors definitely live a completely different lifestyle than I do. Still, ,as I read I began to see more that applied to me. Stuff is a lot more than a material item. Its things in our mind that rob our time. Its the way we treat our bodies. Its a lot. As that message came through I really began to enjoy this book. Many scripture references are used to show God's mercy toward us.
I know that this will be a book I pass on to a few friends. Its a helpful look at who we are in Christ. I would recommend it to anyone who has a notion they are tied to something in the world. And also to those who feel they aren't tied down. Overall, I'd give this 2 out of 5.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers as part of their
