    Practical Minimalism: Being a Minimalist with a Family by Rachel Jones

    Practical Minimalism: Being a Minimalist with a Family by Rachel Jones

    Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism talks about being a minimalist with a family
    Episode 1566: Practical Minimalism: Being a Minimalist with a Family by Rachel Jones
    Rachel started her journey to minimalism in 2008, struggling with depression and horribly embarrassed by the messy state of her home.
    Her goal for pursuing minimalism was to find contentment and joy in spending time with family and being able to focus on Christ. What she found was that minimalism wasn't the answer. But it is a tool to use to help you focus on what's important.
    Her mission is to help others turn their home into their own personal oasis.
    Having found an immense amount of freedom with minimalism, it's her goal to share the methods of simplifying and the tools that she had to rely on (and still does!) to maintain a home that is easy to take care of and a joyful space to live.

    6 Tips for Extroverted Parents Who Are Raising Introverted Teens by Veronique Hoebeke

    6 Tips for Extroverted Parents Who Are Raising Introverted Teens by Veronique Hoebeke

    Veronique Hoebeke with Introvert Dear shares 6 tips for extroverted parents who are raising introverted teens
    Episode 1565: 6 Tips for Extroverted Parents Who Are Raising Introverted Teens by Veronique Hoebeke
    Jenn Granneman is the founder of Introvert, Dear and author of The Secret Lives of Introverts. She started Introvert, Dear in 2013 as her personal blog. She was living with an extroverted roommate, dating an extroverted guy, and working an extroverted job (teaching 4th grade). Jenn wanted to write about what it was like being an introvert living in an extrovert’s world.
    In true introvert form, she wrote her blog anonymously for almost two years. Jenn had no desire to be in the spotlight. And she had no idea her little blog would become this!
    Now, with the help of “quiet ones” around the world, she is on a mission: to let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are.

Kaila D. Q. ,

Spotify ad is so annoying

I love the actual articles and the narrator’s voice. Def give a listen if you’re debating.

My 1 nitpick that’s keeping this from being 5 stars: The Spotify ads

The reoccurring Spotify ads are super annoying because they keep attempting to sell me on paying for Spotify’s premium download feature. Apple podcasts lets me download episodes for free.

Does the script writer realize that what they’re advertising makes no sense to the Apple demographic/customer base? Maybe they could add some other reason for switching to Spotify or elaborate on why Spotify’s premium download feature is superior, but the current reason is nonsensical where it’s left.
