What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

The photos are great. You look beautiful in both photos(there isn't much different in the two, I have to say). Sorry the children are sick. I will say a prayer that it passes and you can all enjoy the cruise vs. quarantine!

Hi, Joanne. I'm Marla. Nice to meet you. :) Just wanted you to know that I prayed for your girlies just now and will keep praying whenever they come to mind. I feel like I know them after reading Living Simply, which I just finished yesterday. :) Long story short, I just signed on with Bill a couple months ago. He sent me your Simple Wife proposal to get an idea for my next one, I devoured it, bought the book the next day, and about peed my pants every time I read something else we have in common. (except that I don't knit, could never be a ballet dancer, and am not opposed to an occasional trip to Chuck E. Cheese) :) The icing on the cake was your H.S. prom pic--my husband Gabe looked JUST LIKE Toben when he was a senior in high school. Uncanny. Talk to you soon! Enjoy your cruise!
