About Me

Aimee Mae WileyHello, and welcome to Whispers of Worth.  My name is Aimee, and I am so thankful you took time out of your busy life to stop by for a visit.

As a wife and mother of five children (ages 6-14), life can quickly get crazy and cluttered in our small ranch home. A couple of years ago, I discovered minimalism, and the idea of living with less “stuff”, less to-do’s, less stress, and more contentment really spoke to me.  If you are also looking to slow down and savor a life of simplicity and intention, you have come to the right place!

Ultimately, I know that true peace can only be found through Jesus Christ.  My faith journey- with all of its twists and turns and tumbles- will filter through much of my writing here. I hope that, in sharing my story, you will desire to know God in a deeper way and find the joy and purpose that comes from a personal relationship with Him.

Here are some random facts about me:

  • Three scents I love are:  lilacs, rain, and freshly cut grass.
  • My writing has been published in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book.
  • I wear size 10 1/2 wide shoes.  For those of you with large feet, I understand your plight!

Thanks again for stopping by. Have a look around, and if you like what you read, be sure to sign up to receive each new post hot off the presses!

  1. It is refreshing to find another believer blogging. I’d love to have more simplicity in my life, but getting rid of stuff accumulated by two sets of parents and what we’ve hung onto for fifty years of marriage is a full time job. Having been an online bookseller had complicated this, since I haven’t yet figured out a good way to get rid of inventory without a lot of paperwork for the IRS. There are times when I could turn the clock back and make different decisions. Now I have to deal with the consequences of bad decisions made emotionally instead of prayerfully. Losing a child can mess up your decision-making process.

    1. Barbara, thank you for sharing your story. You have lived a full life; I can’t begin to imagine all that you have been through, especially the loss of your child. May I encourage you that it is never to late to start simplifying, though? I understand that the process seems overwhelming right now, given your circumstances; however, I believe that releasing those physical and emotional burdens you have held onto for years will ultimately bring you great freedom and joy. May I also recommend Joshua Becker’s online Uncluttered course? It begins next week, but a Facebook group is already in place, and I think you would find great support and encouragement there to begin your journey to simplicity. Whatever you decide, know that God is with you every step of the way. His love, power, wisdom, and healing are within you through the Holy Spirit, and He will never leave or forsake you. All the best to you, Barbara!
