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.

This looks so yummy! And who would not LOVE a new ground beef recipe. I cannot wait to try this!! Thanks for the picture. I am embarrassed to admit that I am one of those strange people who trust a recipe more if I have seen what it is supposed to look like.

Have a great weekend!



You made it to the end! I can't wait to see what you start writing about now!

Sounds wonderful! I think I'd be eating it alone, though. I will make it in single servings :) Aha!

We just finished Dawn Treader...ohhh! It was so good! I got teared up and had to read and try not to look like I was tearing up :)

Have a wonderful weekend, Joanne! The date you picked sounds perfect.
Love in Him,
Happy :)


i'm totally making this tomorrow! thanks!
