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.

My hubby and I are both Air Force brats! I'd agree with pretty much everything you said, except for me making friends was difficult, because I'm very shy by nature. I can think of a couple of other benefits, though, that I believe have made a difference in my everyday life: the ability to read maps well, and the ability to pick up languages quickly.


I am going to write down the following quote in my notebook: We live the lives we've been given and make the best of it.


Thank you Joanne for a very thoughtful answer. It sounds like you and your family adapted very well.

I really enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing a little of you with all of us in Blog Land!



I enjoy reading your blog so much! We are actually Americans, living in Wales! I enjoyed reading about all your travels. For the most part, we enjoy living here, but do miss our family/friends terribly! We work the university students here.

Blessings to you!
