As we close out the year and begin a new year, I am so excited to have as my guest Corie Clark, the founder of Corie Clark – Your Life. On Purpose. Corie has been married to her husband Ryan for 21 years, they have three kids (one starts college this year) and she is a homeschool mom.
Corie gave me a beautiful definition of what it means to her to thrive, “she believes someone is living out and walking in their purpose, not just a job or what they do, but who God has called them to be and to ultimately point people to Jesus.”
As Corie and her family navigated some pretty difficult years together, she realized that she was addicted to chaos. Through many tears, fears and a lot of unknown, they began to simplify and create margin in their lives. As a result, The Simplicity Project was born, a book to help you win your battle with chaos and clutter so you can live a life of peace and purpose. Would you be ready to take the 6-week Declutter Challenge, to take your LIFE back, sweat a little, and maybe even cry a few times? Corie promises, if you make a step forward and take this challenge, you will feel so good at the end, it all starts with a small step.
The more we talked, Corrie shared how she used to be afraid and worried as she was raising her kids that she would end up not knowing who she was when the kids left home? But God answered her worries with a simple “you need to create margin, and give me some room.” She began to realize that as she carved out space in several areas of her life, God could work miracles in these margins. We talked about simplifying your health, your home, your finances, and your time, and asks each person to apply 15 minutes to these areas and watch your life begin to feel free.
I truly enjoyed my time with Corie. My hope is that each of you has a great start to the New Year in 2018 and will make a step toward decluttering your life.
