As you’ve probably guessed, the book Simplicity Parenting has really changed how I’m viewing our home and family life. The subtitle says “Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise to Raise Calmer, Happier and More Secure Kids” and I truly do believe it. It’s been a long time since a parenting book has influenced me so much. And even if you’re not a parent, I believe that the ideas put forth in blogs such as Zen Habits can make a profound difference in the quality of a person’s life.
There will still be plenty of knitting, sewing and spinning around here, but I’ll also be adding a post each Monday on how I’m using the ideas put forth in Simplicity Parenting to improve life around our household. And I really hope you’d like to join me!
So, if you’d love to create some calm in your life, please grab a button and leave a comment to let me know. Blog about it and share what ideas you have to add some rhythm and some simplicity to your life.
You can dive in head on or take it in baby steps. Either way is fine. Maybe you want to simplify things for your entire family, maybe you need to simplify your creative life so you can be more focused on what you do. Just don’t be afraid to give it a try. I think you’ll find it’s worth it!

I already decimated their books and toys based on your initial post (the one with boys in the bookshelf), and it’s been a great thing. More reading, and more toy playing. I’ll look forward to your Monday posts.
I will enjoy witnessing your simplification!
I’m looking forward to your posts as well! My husband is a big simplicity advocate and I, well, I’m just to lazy to do too much so simplicity works well around here.
Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m glad the boys enjoyed the frogs. I’ll be looking forward to hearing more about how this book is helping you. I’m going to see if my library has it!
Sounds like a good start!
I can’t wait to join you in this journey! SP is a book I’ve been meaning to read for months now but..ahem…can’t find the time.
