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.

Much needed... thank you.


WOW!!! We are fearfully and wonderfully made.


Thanks for this reminder of who I really am!


That was good - thanks.


Amazing - thanks for sharing this. This is one video I'll happily send to my friends.


I wish I could see it, but it states "This video has been removed by the user." Anyone else getting that?

I got the same "removed by user" error... after reading the previous comments, now I really want to see it... maybe I'll go search youtube. Thanks for your continued "blog blessings" Joanne! :) W


You are such a good speaker and writer, and beautiful inside and out. Loved this video. Are you able to do videos now at all post-stroke? Love how God does these powerful things like you shared on this!
