In this episode of Naturally Reconnected, Heidi Barr and Ellie Roscher, the incredible women behind the 12 Tiny Things movement, join us to talk about their stories, what intentional living is and the movement they stand behind.
Heidi Barr lives in Minnesota with her spouse and daughter where they tend a large organic vegetable garden, explore nature and do their best to live simply.
Committed to cultivating ways of being that are life-giving and sustainable for people, communities and the planet, Heidi works as a wellness coach, occasionally coordinates with yoga teachers and organic farms to offer retreat experiences, and strives to give voice to stories that need to be told to move toward a more beautiful world. She has a Master’s Degree from Luther Seminary in Faith and Health Ministries and is the author of three books: Prairie Grown (a cookbook), Woodland Manitou (nature based essays), and What Comes Next (an exploration of job loss).
