This is just plain exciting, sweet friends. I’m thrilled to announce that I will be offering a Lenten parish mission in New Orleans this spring! The mission, which will focus on the domestic church – Jesus Christ, marriage, children and then some, will be at Mater Dolorosa. I’ve accepted pastor Rev. Herb Kiff’s gracious invitation and I’m […]
“Oh Lizzie, it’s SUCH a pleasure to run my own home!” Hands down, my favorite line from Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice, delivered with freedom felt by the fresh-off-the-market Charlotte (Lucas) Collins.

What’s more fun and thrilling than being on The Right Heart Podcast?? Being on The Right Heart Podcast twice. Erin Franco knows I relish in simplicity and cashing in on the BIG perks of little living. We got the chance to chat over what drew me to minimalism, why it’s become a mission at […]
