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.

Ooh, it looks so cozy!! I love it!


Amazing what a nice candle and some soft sheets can do for...a marriage! lol!

Melissa@ Breath of Life

It does look wonderful!


I identify with NOT embracing your house as a home...hating it...knowing or at least HOPING it's temporary!! I've also been realizing lately though that it is my home and I have to put some love and time into it to get anything back! Your room looks beautiful and very inviting :)

Love it! You're so right friend, home is wherever you are with God there in your midst!Looking forward to hearing about morning meetings.

Love that you did what you did - with love! My husband and I are also guilty of not getting Christmas presents for each other for the past few years. And we could financially justify it. But this year we made each other a priority - and what a difference it has already made.
I might have to meet all day in those chairs!

this is so awesome. love to all of your family.


Much love to you, girl.


We have a sitting area too...don't use it enough. Tend to lay in bed. Great to have a morning meeting. The night time meetings tend to get pushed off in our house.


Oh I know what you mean! Sometimes little details just bring good memories or are just pretty, or like you said they make you happy! My husband and I just bought our first house and it was so overwhelming having everything in boxes and all over the place, so I took the old advice of one room at a time. Our bedroom was first and I got out some of my favorite things: our wedding picture, a lovely painting of a flower with a verse and my little blur jewelry box, and voila!
