Greetings from the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
I’m Jenn Bryant and Honolulu, Hawaii is my home. I live comfortably and cozily in a little cottage with my husband of 10 years and our two precious kids who just made 7 & 8. My training background is in education, ranging from early childhood, elementary, middle school, as well as Christian theology, philosophy, and literature. I’ve worked as a waitress, newsroom secretary, legal assistant, middle school teacher, preschool director, office manager, and now a stay-at-home mama. I am a Christian, in love with my Creator, Savior, Redeemer and Friend – Jesus Christ. He is my reason for being and the One who gives life to my soul and purpose to my steps.
Encouragement for Practical Living
I firmly believe that our home should be our sanctuary, and what we often find ourselves doing is maintaining at a minimum level. As my family and I gradually step into practices of minimalist living, making the most of our space, and only owning what we need, our lifestyle has nudged me to become more of the practical wife and mommy I strive to be every day.
My hopes for this blog is to become a rest stop and reality check for those of us who live simply by choice, necessity, or both, and enjoy sharing practical solutions for every day life. If you like to make sense of things in your life whether for accessibility, space or time saving, and get that itch to do some re-organizing, join us and share your family’s story, too. I love to write about the relationship dynamics of marriage and parenting, to building connections with the community, and elements of behavior that make us real, unique, and capable of working through our struggles and celebrating our victories.
Join me on the journey to streamlining life; finding simple ways to self evaluate, living in freedom from stress and stuff, and discovering the beauty of our significance.
