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.

Yeah for reaching a finish line and for relieving your schedule of an activity! Summer is almost here!!

Congratulation on such a great job training your Brownies how to think beyond themselves - to work hard, to enjoy the fruits of their labor, and to share these fruits with others in need. This experience will stay with them the rest of thier lives!

Blessings, Dawn


Congrats to your troop. So generous to give back to your school. It's a blessing to hear them thinking others needs rather than their own.


That's great! Congrats!

Janine Longoria

wow - so many cookies! We have our last meeting Thursday. They want to play the cup and clapping games. Thanks again for posting the instructions! Love, Janine

That's so cool, Joanne! God is so good! And now you've got me craving GS cookies!

Holly Smith

That is awesome! Great job and I love the intentional giving and spending!!


That is so AWESOME! I'd say that is very considerate and caring!

Our last Daisy meeting is this afternoon. We're having cupcakes and bubbles, and we're doing some tie-dye! So fun! (Pray that the rain holds off!)


Congrats on being done! Is does feel good, even if it's something you love.

I've no doubt you made a big check! That's just a "you" thing to do. I love those huge, over-sized checks. They can't help but make you feel happy because you know they're for a good purpose. Did you ever see that "Ellen" where she got a big check and pulled back the curtain to reveal a GIANT ATM machine where she slid the check in and punched the GIANT numbers? It was hilarious. I doubt you saw it, but trust me, it was funny.

Wow. I got a little carried away with that...

WOW! Congrats to you & your Bronwie Troop! How AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is Great!! You have amazing Brownies.
Just think, in a few years they will be giving even more to their community. What a fun testimony.
