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.

This sounds very exciting! I wondered why you had moved and I thought I had missed something along the way!

How exciting. You just never know where God's going to plant you and what's He's going to grow from your experiences. I'm reading "In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day". Highly recommend it - your story reminds me of the book. Glad you're getting settled in.

Wow! That sounds like such a awesome opportunity to fill a tremendous need in the church! I will enjoy following the progress of the ministry and hope you will bring this back to Colorado when the year is up! I know you are hitting the daily grind and the fun of being somewhere new is wearing off but this ministry is going to be such a blessing and you'll be back before you know it!
