New here? You’re in the right place.

If you are like most of my readers—you have a head start on this parenting gig. You are informed, knowledgeable, and committed to making life with your family an incredible journey. 

You are striving to raise kids who are kind, curious, and healthy.

You put your best foot forward each day—but run headfirst into one obstacle. There is so much to do and so little time to get it all done.

But you are passionate about the wellness of your family.

Me too. Me too. 

I am Denaye, the voice behind Simple Families. [more about my story here]

And I get it. I am with you. 

We are so busy. In fact, the last time someone asked you, “How’s it going”.

I can pretty much guarantee you responded “busy”.

Because busy is the new fine.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You find yourself trying to accomplish far more than ever possible in a single day.
  • You fear important stuff is falling through the cracks.
  • You want to improve your health, relationships, and time management…but have little opportunity to do so.

We are in this together

Simple Families is about finding solutions to help you live well with your family. You will find an abundance of practical tools and intentional words to help you breathe easier.

What is Simple Families about?

At Simple Families we believe that families live better with less. In short, that means less clutter, fewer toys, uncomplicated [healthy] meals, and positive (yet simple) discipline. You will find mindful efforts toward mental and physical family wellness.

I am so glad you are here. Please sign up to stay in touch via email—that’s the best way to get the essentials.

I look forward to getting to know you.
