“Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.”
— Joshua Becker, author and philanthropist


Simple Living

Today’s Excerpt:

Do you remember what you got for your last birthday? Do you still use those things?

To make this experience even more real, you might invite each person to go and grab one thing they own that brings them joy and one thing that no longer brings them as much joy as it once did.


  • How can we use our money to better bring us joy? (Spend it on experiences, charity, things that strengthen relationships, etc.)

In the end, living simply and minimalism aren’t about never having or spending money. Instead, they are about being clear about what actually brings you joy and what doesn’t — and learning to only use money for that which truly brings joy.

It’s an outward expression of an inner transformation. It’s something we have to be deliberate about.
