Simple Restart Day 1

Minimalist Living Changed My LifeImage: by Bryon Lippincott (my hubby)

This week we are doing 5 days of the most popular posts on LSL during 2013.  To go along with the restart you can grab a FREE copy of Simple Living: 30 days to less stuff and more life. (book will be free from Dec 31 –  Jan 5… sorry for the delay, I goofed)

I wish you a wonderful and simple 2014!

From March 20, 2013

I might get a bit teary-eyed in this post… ever since I had kids I get teary at a lot of things…

The truth is, now that I look back, our change to a minimalist living has made such a huge impact in our life.

Not as huge as my faith that tells me I am saved and have value, or my amazing husband who loves and believes in me,

…but right up there after that. 

We were living a fairly normal life, just struggling to stay ahead (or at least not fall behind), trying to stay out of debt, and trying to survive till bedtime with our two kids.  It seemed that this was just what life was about.

But when we really started to question if we needed everything in our life things started to change…


Needing Some Declutter Help?

Declutter-Clinic-banner-ad2So, a few weeks ago I wrote about how I was changing up the blog a bit.  Instead of decluttering we are traveling, learning, experiencing.  We are living the rewards of a decluttered life instead of doing the actual work.

I felt torn between keeping the blog as a tool for people decluttering and moving on to the new issues and thoughts running through my mind.

Shortly after I posted (read, like a few days) I got an e-mail from Warren Talbot about an awesome new course he was working on all about decluttering.

It was perfect timing!

Moving Forward

Sitting down to my computer this morning to write I am feeling it is time for change.  I have been really wanting to change some things for a while and have not been sure when to do it… this morning just feels like the right time.

I won’t be posting any more Simple Living Challenges on Mondays.  It was really fun and if you want to see the posts you can read through the past 7 months of challenges here.

… or if you want the book check out Simple Living: 30 days to less stuff and more life.

Downsizing our life from ‘the normal’ to a few suitcases and traveling was one of the best decisions we made for our family.  Looking back, it is amazing how much has changed.


I love the word authenticity.  It is something I struggle with and one of the reasons I started writing.  My natural tendencies are to live, act, and speak the way I think people want me to… but I don’t want my life to be like that.  I want to be authentic in my spirituality, my family, my friends, my writing and any other way people see me.  I still need a lot of practice.


Really Awesome Book Bundle

Book bundles are a pretty new thing over the last few years but with more and more books being electronic they seem to be really taking off.  I love it!

Of all the book bundles this year, this one seems to give you the best deal yet!

Book bundles benefit both you the reader and us the authors.  Simply put a book bundle is a group of books, sold for a few days, at about 90% off.  It gets you a whole collection (usually related reading) for a fraction of the cost, and it helps us new authors gain exposure to bigger audiences.

I have the privilege of being included in this book bundle as well as the privilege to offer it to you this week.

For 5 days only, 27 prominent Healthy Living authors have joined together to bundle 34 of their most popular eBooks, valued at just over $300, for the incredibly low price of $29.

Simple Living – 30 days to less stuff and more life – On Sale!

Today is super exciting and scary at the same time.  Simple Living – 30 days to less stuff and more life is on sale 🙂

And for this week only it is on sale for 99 cents!

Need a bit more simple in your life but unsure where to start? Simple Living is written for you. Using minimalist principles I have created a 30 day course, taking less than 1 hour a day that I guarantee will give you a simpler life.

Simple Living‘s 30 days balances both tangible clutter as well as intangible clutter. This is not a course about cleaning. This course and these lessons are about change. Not only will you have a simpler and cleaner home after this course but the steps have been put in place for it to stay that way.
