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.

Well I was cleaning all day and realized late this afternoon that I had done the same thing...forgotten to brush my you're not alone.

Hope you had fun...I'm not so crafty when it comes to gift ideas unless there are cute little girls involved and then let the sewing begin. Unfortunately we only have 1 in the family.


I've been "stalking" your blog tonight and am in awe of your...goodness, just everything! What an inspiration! I am all about simplifying right now, and look forward to coming back to read more of your advice. Some of your "longer" posts are just more than I can digest right now at 10:34 pm on Saturday night, so I plan to return in order to get the full effect.

Thanking you in advance for making a difference in such a positive way! I've enjoyed being around you tonight!
