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.

Procrastination is one of my biggest downfalls. Once I get motivated, it's easy...but getting started is the hard part. Sorry you have the same trouble, but glad to see I'm not alone.

GET it DONE, Girlfriend!! How's that?

Now, seriously, would you like to meet Mer and I for coffee on Thursday morning, about 9:15 or so? Same place we met last time :) Sorry, I am a stumbling block...shame, shame, shame!

But really, you need some time (just an hour and a half) to hang with your Chicas!
Love you much! Praying for His Enablement for ALL things you are doing to be Blessed!!


Okay, how's this, " NOW Joanne, Let us all do what we must so we may then do what we wish!" (Said in a Stern, yet loving voice, dripping with pride and emotion.)


I love your blog and I enjoyed your book,Simple Living!! What is your next book about?


Go, G! I mean, go, Joanne!

I love the G, too.

Now get off your bu** and get moving!

Love ya.


P.S. Feel free to give me a kick start to get moving ANYTIME. (Apparently I've moved on from my incredible tendancy to use the word incredible and am now CAPITALIZING willy-nilly.)


Hi Joanne!
I can't wait to see what every letter is each week. I'm praying I have a "get going" kind of day with Jesus!!
