My review:

I found Katie Coughran on her podcast first (How to Be a Minimalist) and just adored her gracious approach to minimalism. She's a diehard advocate for minimalism... but for YOUR KIND of minimalism. She makes it OKAY to do what you can do... personalize what it looks like for you and your family and don't hold yourself to some idealistic standards that aren't realistic for many - especially families with kids. In her book, she goes into more detail about how to start on the journey to a more minimalist and mindful life. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the joys of minimalism but intimidated by some of the more extreme minimalists out there.
