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.

I totally miss autumn too! We've been living in San Antonio for two years and it's been two years of missing fall too many. But I wouldn't trade where we're at "in life" for fall...although I'd love to experience it again just for bit this year. I grew up in Milwaukee so this is a big change for me...and yes, the air is still running!

Although we did have the windows open for three days last week! Sorry for the random comments! Prayers lifted on your behalf as well.

OK - this may seem like a dumb question (and a completely out of kilter one too) but ... I followed your prayer schedule link and you spoke about having your "Power of a Praying Wife" spiral bound - how exactly did you do that? Did you have to tear out the pages individually? Or am I missing something (totally possible!!)? Thanks. Debbie

I'm assuming you're going to e-mail Debbie^ about Staples doing the whole thing for you. ;)

Thank you so much, friend, for your encouraging phone call last night. You are SUCH a blessing. And your prayers mean the world to me.

Just want you to know I spent some time praying for you and Toben last night, and I started a new prayer journal too. I'll be praying more consistently for all four of you.

Love you!


It's finally in the 50's here in the mornings. But the leaves hasn't even changed colors. To me that's the best about Fall. The cooler weather and the changing of the leaves. I sleep with two fans on year around.


I loved reading about how you pray. I'm currently trying to figure out "how" to pray better and your system looks like something I can do and understand.
Thank you for you!
