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 still want to join in, but i'm waiting for my book to arrive!


I'm looking forward to starting this Sunday. We were on vacation and I didn't get my book until this week. So I've got chapter 1 read and have started chapter I'll be ready to go this Sunday. So far I really LOVE the book:)


I too am waiting for my book to arrive. We're heading out of town until Wednesday and hope its here when we get back.


My book has landed and I've read the intro and most the first chapter, up to pg 18. hope to meet and greet soon.

I just got my book 2 days ago. I'm working on it. Hope to post answers soon! Thanks for facilitating this!


I requested the book from the library and I can pick it up on Monday!

So glad to hear from you! And I was kinda naggy in my post. I hope no one was offended!

I'm so excited about this book and am so challenged to do some evaluation and step it up a notch in terms of living for God's glory in all I do. And I want everyone I know to read it too.

You'll find it's a quick read--though you'll have to stop and underline a lot. :) So catching up won't be a problem!

Love you all,
