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.

Oh my! How do you find the time to read all the new books that come out? I think you may have found the secret to more hours in the day....


Have you read the Betsy Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace?? Add them to your list and make your girls read them. I didn't discover these wonderful books until just a few years ago when I started reading them aloud to my girls and they are so good. If you like Anne, you will like these. :)


I return to Mitford at least once a year - usually just as I finish the last book, I start all over again! I found out recently that she's writing a new Mitford book about Father Tim and Cynthia's trip to Ireland. Can't wait!

Carly Winborne

mmmm, Gift of the Sea. That's a definite yearly read for me!!


Oh my goodness when do you find time to read all of those books?! I can barely make it through two pages before I fall asleep at night. It takes me weeks to read a single book anymore.
