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.

Beautiful...and a "word fitly spoken" (Pr 25:11) for me today. I read Hinds' Feet on High Places based on your recommendation and loved it too, and will now move on to Hannah Hurnard's others. By the way, I've not commented in a long time but I follow your blog regularly. Bless you for sharing your life with such transparency.


Your timing (HIS) is excellent. Now we get to praise Him through this period of unemployment for Sweetheart. Looks like we'll be moving again real soon.


Thank you for sharing the quotations, Joanne! And I am so glad at least Audrey's weekend was so thoroughly redeemed! : )

Sorry for you, but happy for your daughter. Enjoy the girlie time.
