Desirae Endres is a dedicated mother of two, a loving wife, a former teacher, and the voice behind the Minimal-ish Podcast. As the author of “Simple Morning Lists,” she’s on a mission to inspire others with the transformative power of minimalism and intentional living.
Desirae’s journey into intentional living began in 2018 when she and her husband embarked on a quest to declutter their home and simplify their lives. Through this process, she discovered that minimalism extended far beyond just physical possessions. It was about creating a life with fewer distractions, more peace, and a deeper sense of purpose.
While her home may not be entirely clutter-free, it’s significantly lighter, allowing her family to focus on what truly matters. Desirae firmly believes that intentional living means aligning one’s life with their values, adapting to changing seasons, and prioritizing what brings genuine fulfillment.
In her corner of the internet, Desirae invites you to join the conversation about minimal-ish living, intentional motherhood, and the pursuit of a more meaningful and focused life. She’s here to share her insights, experiences, and wisdom to help you navigate your own journey towards a simpler, more intentional life.
