WELCOME!  I am so glad you are here.  Every Wednesday I will be sharing (1) tip to help inspire you to lead a simpler life.  It won’t be anything hard or something I haven’t tried myself.  Living a simple life is a conscious choice made up of small steps every day.  So here is our small step for today.

Tip #7 – Volunteer

One of the things our family loves to do together is the chance to serve and volunteer in our community.  We go down to the local food bank as often as possible to help bag up groceries for our neighbors in need and last summer we had an awesome opportunity, along with our church family, to bless a local elderly lady by re-painting her house and adding a new roof.   It was a lot of hard work but so rewarding.

As we work to simplify our lives more and more, this is one area that we actually want to increase in.  From my experience, serving and giving always add to our lives in so many ways. Read more

Tips For A Simple Life

WELCOME!  I am so glad you are here.  For the next few weeks I will be sharing (1) simple tip to help inspire you to lead a simpler life.  It won’t be anything hard or something I haven’t tried myself.  Living a simple life is a conscious choice made up of small steps every day.  So here is our small step for today.

Tip #1: Take 15 Minutes

Remember. Small Steps.  When I first started simplifying our home it was hard to know where to start.  I already knew the areas that needed immediate attention, but as a whole it was overwhelming.  So I picked one spot. One place to start and I committed to working on it for at least 15 minutes each day.  While the process could be slow at times, over the course of a few weeks it made a huge difference.  The cool part? Each time I finished an area – no matter how small – it fueled me for tackling the next spot.  So pick one. Just one and get started.  Maybe it’s the junk drawer. Maybe it’s your laundry room or your coat closet.  The point is to start. You can do this! I know you can!    Read more
