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.

Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary...hooray for Shonda but poo for me...just kidding....funny my first thought when I saw her name was the same...I grew up in Pullman, my dad grew up in Spokane and my grandparents still live there...I love those stomping grounds...I had aspirations to attend Whitworth as well but not enough Presbyterian scholarships to allow it and I wanted to be able to travel overseas as I became a Cougar at Washington State...small world...

Merry Christmas,


Shonda Whitworth

Thank you!!!

Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a wonderful evening!

And Merry Christmas!

I very seldom win things and I am totally flattered. I look forward to receiving this book cover. I like the brown one with flowers that is in the middle.

Blessings in Christ--

Jennifer Medeiros
