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.

Snow! Us too. Living in the mountains brings about very interesting weather. :) Enjoy!!

Continuing to pray for Joanne and your family. Hoping the funding will come in.

No snow here in NC, but there are plenty of prayers for you and your entire family!!!

May I make a totally selfish request of you and/or Joanne? I few years ago she posted a "recipe" for Easter cookies that you wake up on Easter morning and the "cookie" (or tomb) is empty. I'm not even sure how to search on the blog site for that recipe? Can one of you please repost it? I'm sure I'm not the only person hoping to see this recipe again.

Just one of many you can find via Google.

Thanks for the update! The weather this year has been so fickle. I'm in Minnesota, and we hardly had any snow!! It's been in the 60's or higher all month! Unheard of around here.

I'll be praying for that financial aid to come through for your girls, and for your family as a whole.


Do you have a paypal account? If you would post your paypal address, I'd love to make a small donation for the girls schooling. If everyone who reads this blog sent just a little bit, it would all add up.


YES! can we all donate for the girls school?...I have followed your story from day one. My husband and I want to donate for DC (we have been at DC since 1995) I just said to my husband that I'd like to figure out a way to get a "matching fund" type of thing going. Hey everyone..can we all give something to help the girls stay at Denver Christian next year? It's truly an amazing school and this family does not need yet one more thing...


I have not been by in a while - but that doesn't mean I don't think of y'all. I enjoyed reading the great things that are in these two recent posts. Praise the Lord.

May the Lord richly bless you in ways you never dreamed and bring healing to you Joanne and blessings for y'all's faithfulness to one another through it all.

Praise the Lord! Rejoice! He is Risen and that is our hope now and forevermore!


Just wanted to wish you and your family a very Happy Easter! Love you!


I am still waiting for the answers to where to send a gift for helping. your Maine Friend Rena
