Why are you here?

My guess is that you’re feeling trapped. Yes? Encased by your own life—which you love, but you just feel like you’re not fully thriving. You’re suffocated by too much stuff, too much mess, too many commitments, too much busyness, and not enough space or time to do what you need to do. Yeah? We get that.

Welcome, friend. Take a deep breath and read on. 🙂

The Mission of Smallish

Smallish is a project which celebrates the value of intentionally living small –something we define as making purposeful decisions to embrace minimalism in a smaller home, live within a set budget, and be eco-friendly in our existence as much as possible.

Excess is enticing but ultimately overwhelming. Excess means too. stinking. much. We believe that purposeful limitation is healthy and wise and that intentionally choosing less can be applied with great benefits to all areas of life: buying stuff, technology usage, home size, budgeting, even how we use our time and more.

The mission of Smallish as a blog is to call families who are living in overwhelming excess to reevaluate if the excess is serving them or the other way around. If you’re feeling stressed by too much,Smallish is all about calling people to find joy, peace and freedom in intentionally living with less.

We also believe that true joy and fulfillment is found in the presence of God alone, and that connection with Him is only available through a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus calls His followers to forego attachment to mere things in favor of valuing relationships above all else in life: with others, and with God.

What can you expect here?

Smallish is where one momma of four shares her well-meant but often messy attempts to live intentionally small and increasingly minimalist. Here you’ll find a genuine, practical and sometimes quirky perspective on living with a small budget, a small footprint, and in a small space… and with a large family. Join us to discover how much lighter you can feel with less.
