Emily P. Freeman

She’s  ot so much a minimalist, but a huge encourager of “making space for your soul to breath.” Her blog has been such a breath of fresh air to me over the last year. Her book, Grace for the Good Girl absolutely changed the way I view Jesus, and my understanding of how He views me. I highly recommend it!

Podcast– Her podcast, The Next Right Thing is awesome! Short, sweet, heartfelt, inspirational and something I look forward to every Tuesday.

The Minimalists

These guys are ALL in! I love what they have to say. Their documentary is free on Netflix!
