Review

When you find you are drowning in your own life---working harder, sleeping less, putting out fires, filling your hours with to-dos, and enjoying very little of it---I pray that Erin Loechner' s gentle, wise book will find its way into your hands. Chasing Slow guides us to a simpler life worth living. Prepare to feel your heart rate drop as you read these soothing, smart words. -Gabrielle Blair, mother of six; blogger; author, New York Times bestselling Design Mom Erin's writing is beautiful, and this book is soulful and practical, honest and inspiring. For all of us who are tempted to perform and filter and prove---which is, I think, all of us---this is a necessary conversation about a deeper, better way of living. -Shauna Niequist, author, Bread and Wine and Savor In the fast lane of life, this book is a much needed rest stop for the soul. -Bethany Joy Clark, global brand ambassador, TOMS Beautifully written. Beautifully lived. Chasing Slow will capture your attention, shift your perspective on life, and mark your journey as you move toward what matters. -Ellie Holcomb, singer/songwriter; Dove Award-winning artist When the world yells, "Be more, run faster, try harder," I'll pick up this book again to remind me that true joy lies in the beauty of slow and present. With grace and humor, Erin tells the stories I need to hear and brought my heart back home. -Kelle Hampton, author, New York Times bestselling memoir Bloom Erin Loechner has a calming presence, a reassuring voice, and a life-giving soul. You'll walk away from these pages shifted and feeling whole instead of hurried. Her words are a brave call to a fast-paced generation, and I cannot suggest reading them enough. -Jess Connolly, speaker; coauthor, Wild and Free Reading Chasing Slow is like eating a really scrumptious meal that also happens to be good for you. Erin's voice is honest even when it hurts, inviting even when we don't deserve the invitation. I consumed this delicious, compelling book in a weekend and bled my highlighter dry along the way. -Raechel Myers, cofounder and CEO, She Reads Truth Erin has always stood out as someone who knows how to get beyond the pretty picture and all the comments and likes of social media. In her eloquent, smart, and real story about the evolution of her online and offline journey, she reminds us how to accept ourselves, feel more with less, and soak up life as it come to us. -Joy Cho, founder, Oh Joy! Chasing Slow is equal parts memoir, meditation, and map to a more peaceful life. Erin Loechner has an artist's eye for beauty, a poet's ear for metaphor, and a scientist's mind for investigation and clarity. Her wise voice stayed with me long after I finished the book. -Asha Dornfest, author, Parent Hacks and Minimalist Parenting Erin takes us on a charming, meandering dance of stories, witticisms, and wisdoms. This book is for dreamers, adventurers, creatives, students, mamas, and professionals, but more than that, it's for those of us feeling flawed and desperately craving connection. I'm adding it to a very short stack of inspiring favorites, and cannot wait to read it again. -Whitney English, founder and CEO, Day Designer With four daughters and a job that I love, it is a great challenge for me to keep prioritized those things that give me true joy. As more activity comes into my life, Erin's story has given me not only inspiration but a practical framework to make healthy and easily implemented choices. -Barrett Ward, CEO, FASHIONABLE Erin's way of thinking shows the fruit of living slowly. She pulls at every string, peeks beneath every layer. She connects the dots of how so many of us are feeling, putting words to questions we're only just beginning to ask. This book is beautifully written, and you'll want to savor it. -Hayley Morgan, coauthor, Wild and Free

This is a beautiful book. The photos are just lovely and the way it is laid out is equally appealing. I suppose you would expect that because she is a stylist and certainly knows what she is doing. The author writes about events in her life - good and bad. She is frank and quite hard on herself and I appreciated her honesty. She then talks about how she had several occasions, often in the midst of tragedy when she put her foot on the ball, re-evaluated her life and made the changes that it needed to get her back on an even keel.
Good for me - her honesty about herself, her humour (she writes really well), her common sense and the sheer loveliness of the whole thing.
Not so good for me - I don't suppose many of us can re-boot their lives in the way that the author does, her career in Social Media gives her an enviable flexibility (although she works very hard to get it) so I didn't find much common ground in her solutions. Still, I did enjoy it, it's a lovely book.

I enjoyed the book but thought it was going to be more of a how to slow down rather than one person's journey

Well worth reading, especially for anyone on a path to escape consumerism or interested in minimalism. An honest and thought provoking book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anything but cliche 12 Jan. 2017
By Michelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was nervous about receiving this book that it would be the same message I've been reading in some other Christian books. "Slow down, say no to things to say yes to better." And while this book has that same message, the author's style of memoir writing and keeping the theme present throughout the book was anything but cliche. Unlike similar books, I feel like she nails the heart of discontent and really makes you feel like you're a part of her journey. I'm walking away with a lot to reflect on, some practical tools to simplify, and most importantly a reminder to evaluate why I always have the longing for more.

By livyanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been reading Erin's blog for awhile and always return when I need a deep breathe or a new perspective. Erin's writing is a way to slow down and reset the pace. I read this book on vacation with my family and love the way it gave me breathing room while surrounded by busyness!

A well written testimony to slower living, introspection, and striving for more (and less). I truly enjoyed sitting down with this book each night.
