Did you know there's more to life than answering email and vacuuming LEGO? Of course you do. I love to talk about all that "other stuff" with some of my favorite people around the Internet. Together, we chat about food, good music, writing, books, bedtime routines, and the challenges of working from home. I also answer listener questions and share fun stuff I'm digging that makes my life a bit simpler... Join us—it makes you run faster; it makes laundry folding more fun.

#69: Preemptive Love

I was so honored to talk to my friends Jeremy and Jessica Courtney for this podcast episode. Along with their two young kiddos, they live and work in Iraq heading up Preemptive Love, an organization that wants to eradicate the backlog of Iraqi children waiting in line for lifesaving heart surgery in pursuit of peace between communities at odds.

But also? They’re regular parents and a lot of fun to chat with. In this episode, we talk food, work, culture, and what it’s like to live as expats in the Middle East.

Joshua Becker writes a blog called Becoming Minimalist, and that title describes well his journey: he hasn’t figured out all the ins and outs of minimalism… he’s becoming one.

More than a personality test, the Enneagram helps explain why you act the way you do when you’re stressed, and why you develop certain strengths when you’re growing.
