Hello and Welcome!

What You’ll Find Here

Embracing a Simpler Life is a blog written to moms and homemakers about what it means to live deeply, intentionally and joyfully.

Here you’ll find encouragement to peel away the noise, clutter and busyness of life to find contentment, trust in God and live with an eternal focus.

Every post written hinges on an unwavering belief in the truth of the Bible.

So if you’re longing for a simpler, richer life, you’ve come to the right place. Grab a cup of tea and stay a while. I’d love to get to know you.

About Me

I’m Katie! I’m the gal behind the blog here at {EaSL}.

smallIn my past life, I was an elementary teacher. When my daughter was born I officially stepped out of the career world to be a full-time mom.

When I made that transition, I lost out on money and opportunity, as well as an outlet for ambition, glory, and feeling important. That was a wake-up call for me… a good one.

I’ve learned that what I gained is pretty cool too: a simple life. No frills. No extravagance or excess. Just Jesus, and my family, and my home. This is my ministry now, and it’s good.

I have learned, and continue to learn, what it means to embrace and appreciate a simpler life –to find contentment with where God has me today. To clear out the excess and make the most of what matters most.

And you can too, whether you work or not, or have children at home or none.

And so, here I am blogging about just that.  I hope you will be encouraged.
