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.

SO happy and still sad for you!! :) Grateful for your example of obedience and following hard after Him.

I love ya girl!!

Holly @ Crownlaiddown

Is it ok that I'm crying? I love you, friend! And I'm so proud of you and Toben. Really. What a blessing and honor it is to journey with you no matter where you live.

Nikki

Happy... and sad, too! We are looking forward to getting to know you all better, whenever it is that you finally return to CO. Just look at it this way: you'll likely miss out on all the crazy construction traffic near your house as they build the new IKEA. :)

I am joyful for you. I think joy can be both happy and sad and it is just amazing to be in the place God wants you to be.

I can't wait to see what He has in store for you over the next year.

Marla Taviano

Wow, Joanne. This is amazing. Such an awesome place to be--right smack dab in the middle of God's will.

Love you!

I am happy that God spoke so clearly and that you have such an awesome opportunity!

Blessings,

Yes, He is GOOD! My first thought was how He allowed you to get some things to feather your nest. He was preparing you for your stay!

Lisa notes...

What a great testimony of faith! And of God's goodness. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. It's very encouraging.

Jen

Not surprised at all! God is good! Enjoy this season, it will be over so quickly.

Janna

Hopefully, my baby girl will get to meet you this summer...maybe when you are visiting K's baby...

I love how God prepares our hearts for our next steps. I love how He makes His will clear when we are listening. I love how He provides for all the details in our lives. I love knowing that we are prayer warriors together whether physically in the same room or across state lines. Thank you for sharing your update. I'm glad I checked FB tonight!

I'd like to add that the Schaap Family and your Denver Christian Family will MISS YOU DEARLY again next year!!!!! There is a Heim Family Void there right now! We eagerly await your return...whenever that is God's plan!

Kimberly

We will be on again for breakfast next year when we visit my husbands family.
