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.

They girls (and you) did a lovely job. I am so glad they have a dedicated and talented teacher/role model.


What a cute idea! That would be a quick way to make an extra-special gift bag for someone.


How cute! Those girls are so lucky to have you. We certainly never made anything that cute in Brownies. I think we made paper chains. Every week. ((sigh))
