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.

Good morning, Joanne,

Tuesday holds for me a meeting in a few minutes with an educator whose opinion I trust about some concerns I have about my 4th grade girl. Pray that we will walk in wisdom on how to help her with the anxieties, fears and lack of confidence she has where school is concerned.

Thank you, as always, for the sweet posts that remind me to SEE. And for pointing out scripture in ways I may or may not have thought of before.

Just thanks.

I enjoy reading your blog. I was trying to find out what kind of mental illness you are dealing with in your marriage. I will read more when the baby's not here. Doylene


Today - mowed the yard (with the push mower) - only one section left! Trying to get the boys to clean their room- MITI stuff for our district needs to be done!
