Hi there! I’m Mandi, an almost 29-year-old wife and homeschooling mom of two girls. In a former life, I was a full-time working mom, but I followed the Lord’s calling for me to be home with them in early 2014.
I’m passionate about simplifying life in order to be more intentional with the time we’ve been given. The Bible tells us in James 4:14:
“Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.“
So why blog about it?
Community. I would love to have you join me on this journey and find out what making the most of the mist looks like for you.
Creativity. Recently, my oldest daughter announced that my special hobby is cooking dinner (SPOILER ALERT: it’s not!) As a busy mom, it’s hard to carve out time for myself, but I’m beginning to realize the importance of self-care. We can’t pour from an empty pitcher, right? I’ve always enjoyed writing and I’m looking forward to this new venture!
Accountability. Honestly? The way that I want to live my life and the way that I actually live are very different right now. What better way to hold yourself accountable for the changes you want to make than to blast it across the internet, am I right?
I’ll be blogging about how our family is embracing a minimalist lifestyle, sharing encouragement for times when life feels anything but simple, and offering practical tips for living each day on purpose.
Thank you for stopping by – I hope that you will visit regularly so that we can make the most of the mist together!
