The Purposeful Home Podcast is all about inspiring, encouraging and equipping wives and moms just like YOU to de-clutter, de-stress and live every single day with purpose! Every week Allie + Kelsey, two homeschooling mamas with a total of 8 kids between them, will be sharing real life stories, wisdom, practical advice and encouragement that will help you as you wade through the trenches of pursuing marriage, motherhood and running a home with both grace and intention. You can get to know them more below!
Hey there, friend! I’m Allie, and I’ve been online sharing my journey with minimalism and intentional, simplified living for the past 5 years.
I am wife to Brian (he was the kid who sat behind me in seventh grade algebra class) + mama to our herd of four tiny humans. I spent the first four years of motherhood completely miserable and stuck in survival mode: overwhelmed, overworked, battling heavy depressions and barely scraping by in life.
Then, I found the light at the end of the tunnel. When I started simplifying and removing the unnecessary from my life, I was able to finally shake my depression for good, have more free time, actually enjoy playing with my kids, serve my family well and be the best, happiest, most fulfilled version of myself possible! Now I spend my free time helping my fellow women get to that same place in their lives.
I’m mildly obsessed with cats and I drink coffee like water (you probably think I’m kidding - think again!) When I’m not chasing down kids or managing my business, I’m usually watching I Love Lucy reruns or at the gym trying to force myself to like running (I don’t think it’s ever gonna happen!)
KELSEY VAN KIRK
Hey y’all, I’m Kelsey, an Intentional Life + Business Coach for purpose-driven, go-getter Christian mamas who want to learn how to overcome overwhelm, find their focus, take purposeful action on behalf of their dreams and live with more peace, purpose and joy every day.
I married my high school sweetheart in 2009 and am a homeschooling mama to four little girls (yes, four!) We currently love living near beautiful Charlotte, NC but not-so-secretly dream of settling closer to the beach one day.
Over the course of my life God has revealed so much to me about not only who he is, but also who he created me to be, and I'm convinced there is nothing sweeter than having confidence and peace in both areas. When we embrace and walk in our purpose we thrive, which is why I'm so passionate about helping other wives and mamas do just that!
When I'm not making meals to feed our army, tackling the never-ending pile of laundry, having living room dance parties with my girls or pouring my heart and soul into my work, you'll probably find me snuggled up with my hubby binge-watching Netflix, getting lost in a good book or trying to catch up on years of lost sleep!
