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.

Hmmm...Doesn't it look like Pumpkin on the sleigh? Thanks for letting him wash his hands in your tea (mortified mommy!) and being so gracious. Thank you also for mailing back my phone--sorry to be a pain! I LOVE the door hanger.
I just took a second look. Is that a girl on the sleigh? Can't tell if it's the hat or a ponytail. Oh well, it's absolutely adorable.

Karen

Thank you, Joanne! This doorhanger is lovely! And thank you for continuing to share your life and your walk with the Lord through this blog. Your post about roasting hotdogs over the fire made me want to do that, too, the next time we have a fire in the fireplace. Thank you!

Meredith

I love this Joanne! Just think how much you can save on shipping if you draw my name.

Sarah Miller

I read your book over the summer and it has inspired me and helped me SO MUCH! Now I am enjoying your blog...daily! My husband keeps asking, "Who is this Simple Wife?" Funny! I love the door hanger! Thanks for your insight.

laura

I heard you on MBI Midday Connection in either Jan or Feb and then got your book. Making small changes has changed (in a postitive way) the life I want for my family. They will remember the trip to Disneyworld, but they will be better people because I took the time to stand on the front doorstep in my robe and wave to them until their dad's car pulled around the corner! I used your tutorial to make a wonderful bun for my daughter's first Communion and I am embracing my limited craftiness following your tutorials! So please count me in on the drawing! I love the website and the "simple living" philosophy you've introduced to me! Blessings, Laura
