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.

S is for Scarborough Chicken!

I just put away the last dish from our wonderful family dinner! I heard your interview on Homeword a few weeks ago and picked up your book. I have just left my 8 year career in teaching to BETTER pursue motherhood and a more simple life. I know God has made a way for me to be home with my girls (2 & 4) but I am still adjusting to my new life at home. I can hardly put your book down and each time I pick it up I know God has put it there! Last night I read your chapter about company and so tonight I practiced your chicken recipe. It was a hit! I just wanted to say Thank You for your words of wisdom and encouragement. I just sent a big email out to all my girls to pick up a copy of your book. It's amazing! Thank you! (Love all the Little House references! My favorite!)

I love Pumpkins and Prayer (not necessarily in that order) :):)
