Favorite simple beauty routine or product: About a year ago, I switched to all-natural, paraben-free products. I love One Love Organics’ Easy Does It cleanser and Acure Sensitive Moisturizer.

Favorite simple fall activity: This is indeed very simple, but I love walking outside and taking a big deep breath. The smell of fall leaves and fireplaces in the air is magical.

Favorite tech device/app/strategy that simplifies your life: My PowerSheets monthly tending list keeps my head and heart focused on what matters. It helps me simplify my days by helping me know where to direct my energy—and where not to spend my time!

Favorite morning routine that simplifies your life: I sleep in my workout clothes. No excuses :)

Favorite evening routine that simplifies your life: Pouring Grace a cup of milk for the morning and putting it on the bottom shelf of the fridge. She goes and gets it right when she wakes up (early!) which buys me a few extra minutes in bed.

Favorite trick for simplifying your schedule: Oh so much! Choosing not to let distractions steal my attention is the biggest one. Grab a copy of my book for more.

Favorite simple weeknight recipe: I’m on a pretty restrictive meal plan right now (no dairy, soy, or eggs), so this is a simple favorite lately: organic chicken tenders, rainbow carrots, asparagus, fresh herbs, olive oil, salt, and pepper, all baked together in the oven.

Favorite simple date: Dinner on the back porch as a family is delightful in this cozy fall weather. Not a child-free date, but it’s what we can do right now with a new baby and a pre-schooler!

Favorite simple way you love on your beau: I pray for him. I started using this simple app that reminds me to pray for our marriage daily.
