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.

Best wishes on the next book!

I am trying to read more non-fiction as well. It is a struggle though. I have been reading parenting books on raising boys. My son is so very different from my duaghter in just about every way imanginable, including the obvious. I had 4 sisters and no brothers. Just no clue on what to expect from a boy -- so I am learning. Nothing beats a good novel though!

Dearest...I came upon your blog quite by accident and caught your comment about wanting a pet goat. Two things I'd like to share with you as I raise sheep and goats. #1. Goats are herd animals and you cannot just have one by itself - they will waste away with lonliness. #2. Goats do not graze on grass. They eat trees and bushes! If you were to get a kid AND a lamb and raise them together they would be happy and would keep your grass and bushes neatly trimmed (depending on how large your yard is!) Also if you do not intend to breed your animals, they should all be the same sex. I hope you get your wish! with His love, Deborah
