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.

This is clearly something I need to check out. Thanks for the heads-up, Joanne.xo


There is also a beautiful children's edition--


Okay...I know this will sound crazy, but my 6 yr old LOVES this book. We read it last year in our homeschool as a read aloud during breakfast. It was amazing and she SO got the allegory. I remember one part that was so moving to me I started to cry and could barely read. I looked up at Aly and she was staring at me across the table with tears running down her cheeks. She said, "Don't stop now Mom...this is beautiful!!!" I MUST get the sequel!!
