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.

  • On Jan. 11, Joanne suffered a major stroke. She is now at home and continues on the journey to recovery.

Small world: I am one of your readers who happens to live in Zurich. I am not a regular attender of the School of Ministry, but several of my friends are. And tomorrow I am helping with the meals for the leadership training. I hope to have a chance to say "hello and God bless you" to your Mom, Toben.

Thanks for blogging, and I am pleased to keep you all in my prayers.

Thanks for the update Toben. I would LOVE to volunteer to take Joanne to a pool once a week, if that would help get her there more often! I have some time during the day on Mondays and Thursdays while Cassidy is at a homeschool program. You can contact me by email if I can help! I would LOVE to spend this time with Joanne (even if it was just once a month...or whatever!). I've wanted to see her, but our family has been dealing with some tough medical issues the last 2 years too. Things are calming down and I'd love to help Joanne!

Let me know if I can help in ANY way!!

Praying for the girl's and a pool for Joanne. I had actually wondered if they ever suggested having her workout in a pool. Praying for you all.

Maureen

Praying for each of you--and am so thankful for your updates.

Just wondering if we could see a photo of the leaves that you described as here in Chicago the wind & rain has caused most of our colors to fall early :(

Blessings, and btw PJs are celebrated at my home about 1x each month, just trying to convince my 85-year old father (new roomie) that this is a good thing ;) Thanks for the help.

Toben,
Enough talk about those leaves---we need pictures :-) Here in the northwest we also have beautiful leaves. Maybe we need to have a photo-off of leaves! Praying for the powers that be open up the pool just for Joanne.
Thank you for the updates.

Can you take her to a warm water therapy pool? She might need water warmer than what the public pool offers.

Jennifer

I remember high school days of being ready in 10 minutes- much like Audrey, putting shoes on in the car.

I hope the girls both have wonderful and restorative (as you said) Fall breaks! Keeping the whole family in our thoughts :)

Susan in Zurich

Hello Toben, me again - your reader, Susan, in Zurich. I just wanted to let you and your family know what a blessing your mom was to us at the School of Ministry. What a wise lady; she shared valuable information and I am so glad I could be there.

I wanted to echo a commenter above - a warm water/therapy pool is a wonderful place to have physical therapy. I wonder if you have one nearby.

I hope your fall break is a great time for you all. God bless.

nursing shoes

The environment that a hospital offers to its patients plays a terribly vital role in treating them.One method to buy smart shoes and nursing scrubs is by checking the cushioning material of the shoes. Plenty of shoes with premium quality rubber soles are out there in the real and virtual marketplace.
