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.

Kelley B.

would love to join the Spiritual Mentoring book club! Count me in!

Melissa @ Breath of Life

What about using Mr. Linky, and just linking our posts up to your main post once a week (or however often you do it)?


Wow!!! spiritual mentoring is something my church is SERIOUSLY struggling with. My friends and I asked the older ladies to mentor us at one of the ladies fellowships and they TOTALLY rejected us :( Now my friends and I get together once a month with women from a different church for a mentoring session.

I have to do school for 30 hours a week, but I would love to read the book and at least start in the study (hopefully be able to stay and finish!) Besides the book is there anything else we would need?

Would love to be a part of this. How do I go about it? Will you contact me? I have been looking for something like this for many years! GREAT!

Pam Romo

I would love to be a part of your Spiritual Mothering book group! Count me in. This is the first time I've ever left a comment, but have been following your blog for about a year.


SO happy that so many people are responding! Can't wait to get started!

Holly @ Crownlaiddown

Just ordered the book! Hope you are having a great day, Joanne!! It goes without saying, but I'll say it again...praying for and missing you!


Joanne, where is this sandy/pool? Do you live near a beach, or is it part of an apartment complex thing? It looks so interesting. And yes, so relaxing. Lovely.
