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.

"Worship is the only thing we get to do forever"--what a perfect conclusion to your paper-love it!


Here is a link to the Orthodox Presbyterian Church's has every hymn in the Trinity Hymnal played to simple piano music all verses. This fall we hope to add singing a hymn to our Family Worship time in the evening. This was a great find for us because we are not musical. If you are familar with the Trinity Hymnal it is great...I grew up with it unless they have revised it since 1971 #700 is Trust and Obey. My sweet mom is sending us our own Trinity Hymnal to have at home. I have not read your paper yet but will do so soon. Molding our children's heart's and pointing them to God is such a wonderful responsibility.
