The Simplified Series | Resources

Because I don’t know everything about simplicity, here are links to a bunch of people who do. You’ll find all schools of thought on simplifying…going green, full on minimalism, the simple family, and natural/DIY everything…and not all of them love Jesus. However, they all definitely have something valuable to contribute to our conversation about simplifying!
