Hi! I’m Malinda.
When I was 19 I moved from a small town in Canada, to a smaller town in Texas for an internship. I met my husband there, and life has been a series of thrilling adventures ever since. We’ve lived in Texas, Oregon and SoCal– and currently we’re settling into Northern California where we hope to be for a while.
in 2015 I quit my day job to stay at home and pursue a dream to write full-time, as well as tackle the world of homeschooling our two daughters. There have been oodles of stories of what that journey has been like– you can check them out here and here.
I found myself frustrated with the constant hustle that the world tells me to pursue, and the more I listened, the more I heard echoes of “less”, “slow down”, and “obey”. #obedienceoverhustle became a mantra and the white flag of surrender that I’ve been waving for a while now– choosing to fully embrace the things that God has asked me to do, and let go of the rest.
I believe that intentional living, thriving relationships and an authentic faith produce “a fuller” life. My hope is that the words here will encourage you toward your own version of that.
Please feel free to ask your questions, drop me a note, or share your story. I would love to connect with you and I’m so glad you’re here.
