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.

Oh Joanne,

I can't tell you how many compliments I have received sporting the green floral is so wonderful...took it to Bible study last I am really glad I acted fast!

Have a blessed week!

Gosh, I guess I haven't gone through your website enough, because I didn't know you make things. I'm not budgeted to buy anything now, but will you have anymore beautiful totes next month?



Hey Joanne!

I came across your blog from another and just wanted to let you know how fantastic it is! Your ministry truly is a blessing and a reflection of the beautiful glory of our Lord. Take care and have a wonderful Thursday, lady-o!

P.S. Totally forgot the reason that I left that on this post - your bags rock!
