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.

What a wonderful gift your mom is giving you by sprucing up your house. And what a gift you are giving her by allowing her to do it! As always, your family remains in my prayers!


Can I borrow your mom? PLEEEEEZE! :)

Is your Mom for hire? I'm glad for your positive update!

Continuing to pray for all of you. I've seen Holly's latest picture of your 'Fall' so far and I'm sure you're going to be blessed on your drive! It looks AMAZING!


Glad thigs are going well. Absolutely bless your mom. I will continue to keep you all in prayer.


sounds like you might have hit a new norm and everything is just heading in the right direction. Praise to your mother for helping to get the house back in order. Kind of hard to do once the person who did most of it isn't able to do that. Praying for you, your family and all goes well this fall.
