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.

ok I have been away too long. Thank you for all of your prayers if you would continue to keep me in them I would be grateful. I missed your blog for a bit, but it is nice to get caught back up! How is School?

Thanks Joanne,

I made your morning glory muffins on spur of the moment this weekend and they were can never have enough muffin recipes.
I usually am lazy and make Trader Joe's Pumpkin muffins that never last through the day...but I am trying to use what is in my pantry instead of buying convenience products...taking steps in become a frugal housewife.

Have a blessed week...still praying for you during this intensive school time.


Awwww...that's a frame worthy picture.


ok they are in the oven as I'm typing this - can't wait :-)


Voila.....oh right. I was too tired to really think about it. Oops. Glad you like my First Aid Box!

Thank you! Thank you! I'm going to pick up the ingredients I need on Friday and make them that evening so that our sleep over friends and my son have fresh, homemade muffins for Saturday. I can't wait to try them!
I hope all is going well with the classes. I've got a girlfriend at church who has just started back to school, and as expected, is overwhelmed with the scheduling. I referred her to your site.
Praying for an abundance of the Spirit and wisdom!

Sounds yummy! I don't get a chance to bake as often as it's too hot most of the time. I would love these though.

Cute pic of the kitty!

Cool. We're kind of snowed in, but I have all that stuff here--even a big can of pumpkin that I've been wondering what to do with. Happy Hump Day, friend!
