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.

Ok! God totally had you do that and share it to help me realize that my 9 y/o son's desire for blue hair is just a kid thing and it doesn't mean anything huge! Maybe he and I can start w/ the spray painted hair stuff.

I love it, Joanne. Love it! There will come a time in her life when pink hair is not something she can pull off -- but now? It's perfect. You did a super job, too.
