Guests on this Episode
Jennifer Van Winkle
Jennifer Van Winkle is a fun-loving and intentional-but-casual minimalist. She is an editor of and regular contributor to the Kindred Mom Blog and Podcast. Currently, she writes from home with kids underfoot on her personal blog Pepper Sprout Home. She is passionate about squeezing the most fun out of life in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and 3 children. She is always in search of truth and what it looks like to live authentically and if that surrounds a plate of delicious food shared with good friends and family, then she’s pretty much in the happiest place she can imagine. Find Jenni on Instagram.
Lindsey Cornett is a loud talker, iced coffee drinker, and lover of the written word who writes from the intersection of faith, family, and freedom. She’s married to Evan, and together they live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with three kiddos (four and under). Over time, she is learning to relinquish her perfectionism and embrace her life and creativity as-is. In the process, she’s become passionate about encouraging other women to embrace the freedom Jesus offers, which is rooted in the belief that we are enough just as we are. You can find more of Lindsey’s writing on her personal website, on Instagram, and over at the The Drafting Desk, a thoughtful monthly newsletter which she co-writes to inspire women toward freedom from perfectionism.
