Little Book of Letting Go

30 Days to Cleanse Your Mind, Lift Your Spirit, and Replenish Your Soul

By Hugh Prather

Let It Go and Find Happiness

“Letting go—particularly of fear—has been my desire and goal for years. With the help of this book, I am finally beginning to do it!” —M. J. Ryan, author of Attitudes of Gratitude

2021 International Book Awards finalist in Spirituality: Inspiration

Life does not have to be as complicated as we often make it. Little Book of Letting Go shows us how to let go of the blocks that interfere with experiencing our natural state of wholeness, joy, and peace.

Let it go and shed what weighs you down. From long-harbored guilt to deep-rooted prejudices, many of us bear the weight of harmful tendencies in our daily lives. Whether we realize it or not, these things are actively holding us back from the happiness we long to attain. In this inspirational book, minister and counselor Hugh Prather provides a guide for mental cleansing. It is only in ridding our minds of the fear and judgments we cling to that we open the door for happiness.

Embrace opportunities as they come. The more we hold on to, the less room we have to take on more. If our minds are clouded by negativity, then we aren’t facing each day with the openness that it deserves. By facing each moment with enthusiasm, we pave the path for positive thinking and make the most out of every opportunity that comes our way.

Practical exercises and lasting tools. Changing how we think takes practice. This is why Prather doesn’t just tell us that it’s important to let go—he shares with us simple steps for how to go about letting go of things that hold us back. Through learning from Prather’s shared experiences and adopting the practices he offers, we can find happiness, peace, and a chance at spiritual renewal.

Inside discover:

  • A simple 3-step process for letting go
  • A 30-day plan for spiritual renewal
  • Personal stories from Prather

Readers of Letting Go: The Pathway of SurrenderIt’s All Under ControlThe Art of Happiness, or Love is Letting Go of Fear, will love Little Book of Letting Go.

Daily reflections to kickstart your day. Start each morning this year with the words of bestselling author, counselor, and minister Hugh Prather.
