Every year in October, my beloved friend, Myquillin, hosts a totally awesome 31 Days series. This will be my 3rd year to join in and I couldn’t be more excited! After our house fire in 2010, I wrote 31 Days to Rebuilding Your Heart and Home. Last year, I wanted to find ways to use our home to bless others so I wrote 31 Days to a Heart of Hospitality. As many of you know, I turned that series into an ebook, which you have been so gracious to support. I couldn’t be more thankful for your love and encouragement.
To be honest, committing to writing everyday for 31 days, in the middle of fall and school and life, is daunting and I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it again. This spring, my dear friend, Ruth, told me about her idea to write about one of her favorite topics—LESS—for the series this fall. I pushed back a little. I know that LESS is now all the rage and I think we all have areas in our lives where we could and should learn to live with less. But, there are also things we need more of and that’s where the discussion got interesting. In other words, our little debate over LESS and MORE turned into a neat idea for a little series that we can’t wait to share with you. We’ve been working hard for a couple months already to bring you , 31 Days of Less and More: Less Heartache—More Joy, Less Stress—More Peace, Less Stuff—More Contentment.
We would be honored to have you follow along with us. To subscribe to my blog posts, click here!
If you’re interested in learning more about the 31 Days and writing a series yourself, the Nester will get you started.
Are you planning on writing a series this year? Tell me all about it!
Not writing a series but very interested in reading yours (as always!).
Ruth @ Living Well Spending Less says

I love this idea. Cannot wait!

What a great idea to share the theme! I can’t wait to see what you two come up with.
This is a great idea! It reminds me of Colossians 3:1, where Paul not only exhorts us to “put off” sin, but to also “put on” Chirst-like virtues.
Excited, as always, to read your thoughts!
Last year for 31 Days, I wrote our story–(31 Days to Come Full Circle).
This year I had contemplated several different things, but after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer last week, I’m thinking about 31 Days of What Really Matters. We’ll see if I can pull it together…
I’m ready,,,I mean REALLY ready!!! Bring it girls!!! Love fall, Love your blog, and you, Love the theme. Can’t wait!!!

What?? How cool! I love it. What perfect symbiosis. :-)) can’t wait to read.
Yep! I’m writing too, a 31 day series on silver linings.

I was in Knoxville today & am just now getting around to reading my blogs for today. I’m very excited by your topic. My word for 2013 was Less and I blogged about having less so that I could have more. I’ve even toyed with the topic of less for more for my 31 days. I’m also considering how to be more intentional & up to date in your relationships. As well as a few other ideas we’ll see, I’m still letting the choices swirl around in my head and some on paper.
But I know I will enjoy your take on the subject. Can’t wait!
Looking forward to reading the Less More series.
Oh goodness…I can.not.wait to read your thoughts on this!
Carol s. says
Write away! Sounds good. I blog about once every 31 days lol, and even that seems like work. Fun, but work. Love reading your blog, so much less work for me and very inspiring.
I’ll be excitedly following along. I can’t wait!
Less stuff, more Pyrex. Am I right?
Wish I could think of something worthwhile to post but it’s just not my life lately. Unless everyone is interested in “less diaper changing, more potty training”. Anyone? Anyone? Yeah…didn’t think so.
Looking forward to YOUR posts though!
Edie, thank you for all you are doing in blog world – the encouragement, the opening of your soul and your sharing with us. If I had to choose only three blogs to read, they would be life in grace, the nesting place and chatting at the sky. I have to correct myself when talking about something you have written because I say, “I was reading my friend’s blog yesterday and…” 🙂 Can’t wait for 31 days!
I don’t get to comment often, but I just had to jump in here when I read this tonight. LOVE it!! Especially because God’s been laying this same thing on my heart for weeks now – More of His best, less of the mess. This has been my personal mantra all month as I’ve been thinking about all of the ways I’ve been floundering that I don’t have to be floundering and all of the ways I’ve seen other people suffering from things we shouldn’t have to suffer from. We’ll be using this mantra for our 31 days and I’m certain it’s going to be a challenge and a biiig opportunity of growth. I can’t WAIT to see what the two of you are sharing and how it speaks directly to me, too!
