Are you exhausted by the do-more, be-more life? Do you long to uncover your true self and your purpose in this world? Gardeners familiar with the technique called “pruning open” know that the secret to healthy plants and trees lies in subtracting rather than adding. Similarly, we begin to flourish as we let go of our false selves and allow God to prune us. With powerful stories and insights into the latest research, Michelle DeRusha helps you

· declutter your heart, mind, and soul
· let go of busyness and false identities
· grow in your relationships, vocation, communities, and intimacy with God

    Great concept for a book. It’s nice to see authors writing on subjects that might not be the easiest subject matter but that written to help others. I could use al the help I can get on letting God change use.
