Hey Momma Friend, I’m Stephanie.

37094887_10155738917608683_1161742113302380544_n

I’m wife to Chris + a mom of three blessings. 

I live a simple, straightforward, and intentional life for the Creator.  

I’ve not fully embraced minimalism, but love simplicity, routines, and purposeful living. 

I’m an Enneagram One.  Sharpies and strong coffee are my love language.

It’s my passion to help women transform their lives and live like they’ve been called out from the grave.

I use Spirit-led strategies to help you with the skills you need to simplify life and overcome the overwhelm.  We are created to live in peace and in step with the life that He’s called us to.  (Ephesians 2:10).

IS THIS YOU?

I design straightforward tools without “fluff” or “filler”.  I am a get to work kind of girl who wipes the sweat from her brow daily.  For too many years I struggled with anger, resentment, and overwhelm. I will NEVER go back there, sister.  EVER.

I focused on all that I didn’t have and my joy was lost.  I had no systems in place and I was barely afloat in my marriage, my motherhood, and my life. This is why I write and I create for you:  To give back to the One Who changed me.

Are you overwhelmed and exhausted? I help overwhelmed women simplify their lives with Spirit-led strategies by defining and setting fierce boundaries around Christ-centered priorities.

Is your home chaotic and your “Martha heart” burdened?  I help struggling mommas create routines and rhythms to simplify life and create time to practice self-care, create peace in their homes, and serve in the calling He’s given to them.

Is your mindset struggling to see abundance in your life?  I help my sisters become unlabeled from how the world defined them and embrace who the Creator designed them to be.

I THOUGHT THERE WAS NO HOPE.  I WAS WRONG.

This really isn’t about me.  This is taking my mess and making His message to help you.

A few years ago I was in a deep, dark place mentally, spiritually, and physically. 

What others didn’t know and couldn’t see was that our marriage was falling apart, that heated words and arguments were the basis for almost every conversation.  Resentment and indignation were a part of the foundation that was crumbling under our feet.  And after 12 years of marriage, I was miserable, unlovable, and wanted out.

I was an impatient, angry, and slightly resentful mother too.  I wanted to call my children monsters but knew something was wrong with that image.  Oh, sister! I blamed them for my misery because they always needed something from me.  I had no idea how to create time for myself or deal with all the messes.  

I was overweight and overwhelmed with where my life was heading.  My life was crumbling around me and I had allowed the Enemy to label me with lies and ugly words.  I had no strategy of how to battle the Enemy that was stealing my joy.  

If you’ve made it this far, my guess is you relate. You’re barely getting by, your life feels chaotic, and you some days feel like there is no hope.  But, sister, there is hope.

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

I create simple + action-packed downloads, courses, and workbooks designed to help them live an intentional, joyful, and simplified life for the Creator.

There are so many tools on this blog to help you create a simple life that brings peace + purposeful living.

I WANT TO SHARE THE STEPS I TOOK TO GET STARTED:

In each of these blog posts, I share the parts of my journey in which I followed the lead of the Creator as He guided me to simplify my life.

1.|Sitting at the feet of Jesus to claim my identity as a Daughter of the King.

2.|Setting fierce boundaries around Christ-centered priorities.

3.|Reclaiming my mornings + creating a morning power hour to fill my cup.

4.| Getting my home together with rhythms + routines.

5.|Simplifying my Space to throw off all that’s hindering me to live as His handiwork.

THE STARTING POINT

I know what it’s like to start from scratch when we’re ready to change our lives to simplify and live intentionally for the Creator.   And without the right tools, it can be almost overwhelming.

When I first moved into the realm of living as His handiwork I found difficulty balancing contentment and complacency.  I knew I was called to live more abundantly, but how did I do that living in godliness with contentment?

I want to help you begin this journey without the struggle. If you’re ready for more resources, then read on here.

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME?

Stephanie Dunning A Simply Dunn LifeI wear gym clothes daily.

I have this crazy hair so I wear bandanas like most women wear nail polish.

I workout at home and love menu planning to ensure I keep my temple healthy for the Lord. *And just maybe because sharpies and coffee are usually involved too.

I also make my bed every day as a part of my morning routine because it makes our space feel clean.  Secretly it makes me feel productive too.

I don’t watch TV.  As a matter of fact, we don’t even have cable.  We love superhero movies though.  And my blessings are book nerds like me.  We regularly discuss characters like they are true friends that we love.

I drink black coffee most mornings and sometimes I froth up some cream to make it, well creamy.

Quiet spaces make me happy.  Please don’t chew loudly or rattle plastic around me because I might snap. No really, ask my kiddos.

I birthed all three of my blessings by C-Section at a military hospital.  Our favorite duty station was in Germany where we fell in love with all things Volksfest, Dirndls, and Lederhosen.

My grandma Betty taught me to sew while I was in college.  Creating and praying over one of a kind pieces for others brings me joy.  I have used this to create a line called Simply Dunn.  I showcase and sell some of those items here.

One day, I’m going to have a beautiful garden full of produce, flowers, and green things.  I want to learn to pickle, can, and really claim a “homestead” kind of lifestyle.  #lifegoals

I live a simple life on social media too.  I’m on Instagram daily and share encouragement on Facebook.  You can find and connect with me on either platform.  But, I keep notifications turned off.  (I practice what I preach, sis!)
