Hey, I’m Andrea Dekker.
I’m a wife and mother of 4 young children who loves nothing more than being home!
I’m passionate about creating a peaceful home, pursuing a simpler + slower lifestyle, and encouraging women in all stages of life to lean into their values and live more intentionally.
I’m so happy you’re here!
Does this sound familiar?
- “I can’t figure out how to maintain balance in my life — between the house, the meals, the family, and my own personal life, something has to give. I just don’t have time for it all.”
- “I’m exhausted by the constant pressure I feel to do it all, all the time!”
- “I wish I enjoyed more time at home with family, but I feel guilty slowing down when my do-to list is waiting.”
- “I struggle to say “no” and regularly get bogged down by too much on my plate. Why do I do this to myself?”
If you can relate to any of the statements above, you’re not alone, my friend!
These are just a few of the many thousands of emails, comments, and messages I’ve received over the past decade.
If only there were another way…
A way to confidently balance our home, life, and relationships.
A way to find fulfillment and purpose without guilt.
A way to cultivate a simpler, more intentional life in our busy-glorified, instant-gratification culture.
A way to thrive, not simply survive.
I believe this is possible!
Because I believe you can live intentionally in an instant world!

When You Feel Overwhelmed…
Within two weeks of my 21st birthday, I happily assumed the roles of wife and homeowner — a dream come true for the girl who grew up watching Martha Stewart instead of MTV.
Nevertheless, I soon felt overwhelmed with the pressures to maintain our home, nurture our marriage, manage my schedule, and cook anything that didn’t come from a box.
I had visions of a simpler life… but my reality felt like a hamster wheel of “work more, do more, be more.”
Can you relate?
Disenchanted with society’s definition of the ideal life, I intentionally worked to simplify my home and slow my schedule.
Fast forward a decade and 4 children later…
As society continues to rush through life at breakneck speed, our lives feel simpler and more intentional. My priorities are clearer, my relationships are stronger, and my to-do lists actually feel doable. Best of all, my days are fulfilling (not just FULL).
After years of reading, researching, trial, and error, I created this online community as a place to share the tools, strategies, resources, and mindsets that have made the biggest impact on my family… and that I hope will help you too!
I believe you, too, can enjoy a simpler, more fulfilling life!
…getting out the door on-time, without forgetting anything or yelling at your kids to “hurry up”.
…having a plan for dinner and enjoying stress-free meals together as a family each night.
…making time to read, exercise, or work on your list of “someday projects”.
…acknowledging when your schedule feels too full and confidently saying “no” without guilt.
I believe this can be your reality!
