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.

Hi Joanne,
Speaking of beloved book characters- have you read I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith? I think you might enjoy it- I loved the narrator and wish I read it when I was younger as I think she captures the mix of emotions in late adolescence well. Best wishes!- Christina

Jennifer VeStrand

Yeah!! Please let me know how you like Beanie! I am thinking of rereading them all. Such great memories for me! Enjoy! And blessed christmas.

Anuja

I love Enid Blyton and grew up reading all of her books. St. Clare's is another boarding school series by EB, and I love it even more than Malory Towers. I can go on and on about her books. There are so many that I love! She was a prolific author, writing for very young readers too.

Jennifer

I love to read about all your favorite books! I love Betsy-Tacy-Tib and reread them often.
On another note...I read on your side bar that you are going to tea at your mom's house. Would love to know the devotion your wrote. Hope you had a wonderful time.

Theres something sweet and innocent about Besty-Tacy-Tib that I just love, along with the freedom they have as children that our kids just dont get to experience today. And I posted the devotion under Come, enter the story.
