This week we're talking about simplifying in a busy season. We know that the back to school season brings a much busier pace for many families, so we are discussing how you can keep things simple during a season like this. 

This doesn't just apply to back to school, but any busy season.

Minimalism isn't just about decluttering- it's something you can adapt into your entire life. That includes your schedule, your mindset, and the way you intentionally live out your life. 

PS: Sorry about any background noise. We’re not professional podcasters. We’re a couple just wanting to share our heart! Give us some grace, We’re doing our best!
