Joshua Becker is best known for being a minimalist YouTuber and that’s how I discovered him. Admittedly, the first time I encountered his channel I thought it was a bit strange and eccentric that all his videos are just ‘talking head’ videos, which I prematurely judged to be rather bland! I’m ashamed to say this, particularly as my own YouTube videos are mostly talking head videos.
I kept encountering Joshua on YouTube as I searched for inspiring minimalism videos. I learned from watching more of his work that he was a pastor for fifteen years. I’d never have guessed, though I did wonder about his faith. The more I watched, the more I came to appreciate that he is a wise and generous person with some great advice to share — not just about minimalism but also about finance, family, and life lessons in general.
I started sending some of Joshua’s videos to a friend of mine who is struggling to find the motivation to declutter. She was inspired! I have been trying to encourage another friend with his videos as well. And now I want to inspire readers of this blog, so today I thought I’d share three of Joshua’s videos that I’ve found inspiring (I have picked only three, but they are all good!). I hope you enjoy.
If you have seen any videos related to minimalism and simple living that you’ve found inspiring, feel free to leave a link in the comments. I personally find minimalism to be very compatible with my worldview and my faith and am always looking for new tips and words (or videos!) of wisdom.
