Welcome! Start Here.

Ever feel like you’re always busy, but at the end of the day you sit back and wonder what you actually accomplished?

We all have days like that. Maybe even weeks or months like that.

But it’s not the way I want to live every day.

I know that’s not the way you want to live either.

I asked readers in the Simply Kristy Lynn (SKL) community, What is your biggest challenge this year? 

Check out the most common responses:

  • Finding more time to take care of myself. 
  • Having enough time in my day. 
  • Budgeting and finances. 
  • Healthy meal prep. 
  • Homeschooling/marriage/family life. 

And then these responses to the question, Which area of your life needs the most improvement?

  • I get overwhelmed thinking about everything I need to do, and then I give up and do nothing.  (one-third of the women who responded to my survey said this)
  • Getting organized. 
  • Exercising/Health
  • Finding balance and cultivating daily rhythms. 
  • Time management and finances. 

I relate to so many of these struggles and desires. 

Don’t we all long to live well?

Yet despite our deep desires, living an intentional and productive life doesn’t just happen because we want it to. 

We all know that life can happen, year after year, without us ever really reaching our desired goals or God-given potential. I know, because I’ve been there.

I also know that you don’t have to stay “stuck.”  

What do you need help with?

I don’t have this all figured out. But the longer I live, the more I learn. The mission of this blog is to create a space for community, connection, and cultivation of the inspired life.

That’s really why I began blogging back in 2007: I wanted to share my journey with other women who want to live well too.
