    Thanks, Pam, for this wonderful article. It’s perfect timing for me since we are preparing to sell our family home that we owned for 36 years. God knew what I needed today!

    Your words are timely and true. I began a journaling my journey to less last year. I also released my first book three months before and second four months after I started declutter it. Needless to say I didn’t get far. A few drawers and cupboards was all I accomplished in 2023. This year my word is hidden. The Lord had deployed me to hack the hoard in my basement. It’s slow emotional work. My minimalist millennial daughter helped get rid of her things while she and her family visited at Christmas. The most helpful things I’m learning is form follows function. When I ask how do I want this space to function, it reveals what needs to be there. Anything that hinder the function of a space goes. The other thing is I can love people and let their gifts go. And if they love me they’ll give me their blessing! Like my dear friend of almost forty years who saw I was discarding a cross stitch she made me said, “It was for a season and that season has past. Let it go!”

    Thank you, Pam Mutz, for reminding me of the joy of decluttering. I find I need to do it every year or at least every other year. When an honest friend helps me, it is much easier and more fun.
