Meet Your Hostess
I’m Sallie Schaaf Borrink and this website is where I help others on their life journey toward a quiet and simple life. I consider myself part hostess, part friend, and part mentor. I’ve been blogging for over fifteen years and you will find all of the best of it here on this site.
Subscribe and Receive The Simple Life Library
I have a lovely and helpful gift called The Simple Life Library that I give to all of my subscribers. It is full of encouraging and practical ideas for creating a life of peace, understanding, joy, beauty, and faith for you and your loved ones.
Read the Blog
My website is large enough that each category is almost like another small website. You can see the main categories in the website header and all categories in the drop-down menu in the sidebar. I also have tags and categories at the end of posts to help you find the information you need.
Browse the Shop
I love creating helpful materials and have an extensive shop full of them. My shop includes my editable homeschool planners, homemaking printables, learning printables, Christian printables, ebooks, and many other non-learning themed items.
Get the Guidebook
The A Quiet Simple Life Planner and Guidebook is the main resource for readers of my site. Once you purchase it, you receive all future updates and additions.
Listen to the Podcast
A Quiet Simple Life is the name of my podcast. It’s on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, but if you listen to the first five episodes you’ll be all caught up when I start adding more.
Comment and Participate
Join in by leaving comments on posts and participating in the Simple Living This Week post that goes live each week on Monday. Each week I give a little update about our family and share what I’m doing in my home. Share what you are doing around your home in the comments so we can get to know each other.
Visit the Forum
Since I’m not on social media, I have a friendly forum where I share links and have discussions. We discuss all sorts of topics including culture and politics where the purpose is to find the truth without fear of harassment.
