Lindsay at Search for the Simple

Hi there!

I’m Lindsay, and I’m honored you stopped by this little corner of the internet where the stirrings in my heart become words.

This is a place I talk about the profound and the silly, the extraordinary and mundane. Simple, but beautiful things. All the things that make a life. I’m so happy to have you along for the ride!

Let me tell you a little about myself.  I dance in my kitchen every day. I married a hottie I first saw at an internet kiosk in the lobby of my dorm. I am mother bear to three little wild things, headmistress of the illustrious Sycamore Academy (our homeschool), and, according to my husband, the world’s fastest chicken plucker.

I could gorge myself on Mexican and Middle Eastern food every day and never tire of it. Some of my best days have been spent lost in a book. I am recovering people pleaser, depression and anxiety warrior, and above all, my heart belongs to Jesus who has carried me through this sometimes beautiful, sometimes hard life.

I was voted Most Likely to Succeed by my high school class, back when I thought success meant a high paying career and the accolades of my peers.  Today I define success much differently.

Success is living according to your passions and values.  It is loving your neighbor and doing things afraid. It is seeking simplicity. One step at a time, we are eliminating the unnecessary, excess, and hurry to make room for what we feel are the true necessities:

time to play, laugh, explore, and discover as a family

cultivating life-long learning

belly laughs and deep conversations

delicious meals with nourishing ingredients

dance parties and game nights

natural ways to keep our home and people clean and healthy

nurturing our true passions and gifts

turning our abundance into blessings for others

growing in our relationship with Christ.

I hope you’ll enjoy learning and growing along with me in this space.

Many blessings,

    I wish I could email you privately to ask some questions, but I can’t find your email. I came across your blog after a very specific google search and your post was helpful. I too am a homeschool mom, love Jesus, and seeking to simplify my life rather than keep up with those stressing themselves out for other pursuits. I’m recently learning the importance of rest after we celebrated Sabbath for school last week. Funny thing, I also was voted most likely to succeed and figure my life looks much different than what many would deem successful.
