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.

Have fun at LHOP! J and I talked about taking the kids to see it in Denver and we dropped the ball! ;(

My friend saw it in Little Rock and said it was GREAT. And that Melissa Gilbert is very approachable and was happy to take pics with the audience. You should go for it...your girls would LOVE that!

Hope your weekend away is good. My experience with counseling is that it's hard beyond belief but so worth the work. And God surprised me in so many ways through my experience. May He surprise you as well! Blessings, friend.


Been totally covering y'all in prayer for a good two weeks now, so it should all work out ;)

Will continue to pray. And keep y'all in my heart.

I hope that you both are surprised...

Love you, girl. Will miss your tweets and posts and emails and texts while you are gone but I know...KNOW...that God is going to do some incredible stuff this weekend.

Praying for you, always. Love you, my friend!


I've prayed for you Joanne.
Take care,

Marla Taviano

I've been praying for you, friend. Will keep on!!


Will be praying for you both. Raw is good sometimes.

Holly B.

Praying for you and Toben both on this frosty French morn. May God intervene and show you amazing things this weekend!


Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I hope the weekend went well. I prayed for you all.

Take care,
