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.

For those who want to contribute, our family will match up to the first $1000 given to help reduce the girls tuition next year. But we all need to wait until Toben gives us all the go-ahead before we send checks to the school.
Everything helps, so please consider contributing whatever you are able to contribute!


Of course people have asked how they can contribute -- what else can they do after reading about how you need money for tuition and also for Audrey's dental work. Why can't your daughters attend public school? My children went to public school and they turned out fine. Is there not a low-cost dental clinic that could provide assistance for Audrey? You should be ashamed of yourself for begging like that.
