Today is National Simplicity Day and to celebrate, we are highlighting a person who took a bold step to simplify life and writes about it in her book, Living Slower, Simple Ideas to Eliminate Excess and Make Time for What Matters. If you are struggling to keep on the treadmill of life, you'll be inspired by Merissa, who offers hope that you can slow down, declutter your home and mind, and live a healthier and richer life.
Why is it so difficult to talk to our closest friends and family about what's most important to us? Author Andy Bannister asked himself that question while operating as an undercover Christian on his job. This led him on a quest to learn an easy and natural way to talk about the fundamental questions of life with the ones he loved. Andy will share what he has learned and helped others to learn regarding faith conversations on Wednesday's Ken and Deb in the Morning!
Merissa A. Alink is the blogger behind the popular Little House Living, a website that she started more than a decade ago to teach people how to live a simpler and more frugal lifestyle. She and her husband David live in the Black Hills of South Dakota where Merissa homeschools their three children.
Andy Bannister is a highly in-demand speaker, writer, and broadcaster. Based in the United Kingdom, he's the director of the Solas Centre for Public Christianity, an evangelism and training ministry. He is an adjunct professor at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto, and an adjunct research fellow at Melbourne School of Theology in Australia.
