simply living | a webinar to clarify your daily routine


simply living

To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work. ― Mary Oliver

On my personal (and familial) quest to live more simply, I have learned one overarching truth: simple and easy are not always the same. Living simply requires thoughtful planning and hard work, but foremost it requires paying attention. When our days become out of sorts, many times what I need is not a new method or even a new book, but instead to take time to clarify or clean up what we’re already doing. This webinar will not have any cleaning tips or Mary Poppins wizardry, but I will share five general principals that help keep me focused in my days, balancing home and work life, and that also bring me back when our routine tends to drift. Life is complex, especially as a parent, but maybe our days don’t need to be. Grab a cup of coffee, and join me to discuss how our family returns again and again to simply living.

  1. Hi Bethany,

    I know it’s months later, but i thought I would try anyways. Do you still share the link to this webinar webinar?

    1. Author

      Yes! Have you subscribed to the blog? You should receive the link when you do. If for some reason you don’t, please let me know!

      1. Hey there,

        I finally figured out how to view your webinar. It was not through the link that was given when subscribing. I searched on Pinterest “simply living, cloistered away”—that seemed to work. Your webinar video was at the top of the results. I love your Website and I am truly grateful you share your life and experience with us. It’s always inspiring. -Thank You

  4. Hi Bethany,
    Will you be sharing this webinar any time again soon? Life for me is a little muddy right now and this just sounds like something that could help clear a path for me. Wading new mom waters over here and finding new rhythms in life. Thanks so much!

    1. PS – I still haven’t received my newsletter confirmation.

    2. Author

      Hi JR, Yes, there was a glitch that day with the WebNinja, so we sent out a different link. And I’m sorry to hear you haven’t received a confirmation or the webinar. I sent you an email the other day to work out details and get you squared away. Did you notice it? If so, let’s carry the conversation over there, so it’s easier. ;)

  14. Hi Bethany,

    I missed this webinar and would love to be able to see it. I’ve tried subscribing as well but didn’t get any confirmation by email. Is there any other way that I view or get a link to this webinar? Thanks!

    1. Author

  20. Is this something centers around raising your children in a healthy way? I am an empty nester and I finally taking the time to eat better. Wondering if this is something for me?

    1. Author

      Hi Sandy, this is not specific around one topic in that way. It’s more about the focus of your daily routine, how you manage your days, and five principles I return to when my days become muddled or too loosely focused. It will be about 20 minutes or so, and I think could be applied to many different areas of your life, in any season. I hope that helps, and that you’ll join us for a brief bit. ;)

  21. Ok…. So I’d SO love to be part of this, but am in the UK… AND on vacation in Norway at the mo! So glad to see I can catch up later!! Hope you will do something like this again soon! (Oh… And have you done it before?? If so, where can I find previous recordings??) I am loving your blog Bethany… It’s a recent discovery but I’m hooked, and love the way you tie up simple gospel living so beautifully! Keep it coming!

    1. Author

      Claire, that is such an encouragement to hear. Also a vacation in Norway sounds dreamy. I hope you’re enjoying yourself. The webinar will be waiting for you when you return. x

  22. Hi Bethany. I was going to ask the same question as Lorena as am in Australia! Thanks so much for this … it looks great! Thanks, Ally

    1. Author

      It’s so difficult to know what time is best for these sort of things, so I’m grateful the recording will allow you and others to enjoy it at your own convenience. Warmest to you.

  23. hi, so excited about the webinar – I’m in New Zealand … because of the time difference will I be able to listen to it later? Thank you!

    1. Author

      Hi Lorena, yes it will be recorded and available to download after the live viewing. I hope you enjoy and have a cozy weekend!
