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.

Toben, I wish I could give you some brilliantly illuminating words of wisdom regarding your daughters but I/we raised 2 boys (the Lord is so wise!!!) and I totally "went with it"! I hold to the belief that 'the Lord knows our frame' and can smooth out/erase the misjudgments/missteps we make in parenting when we are doing the best we humanly can while seeking His Face.
Tom and I have never ceased to lift you all up in daily prayer and have appreciated your posts/sharing along the way. Blessings and hugs from the S.E. corner of MN (the Coulee Region/God's Country)


So glad you posted!

Sounds like wonderful trips for all. Thank you for giving an update when you could. Keeping you all in my prayers and thoughts. Joanne, I hope you are finding good books to read in addition to God's Word. I'm at one book a week lately. I also hope that you are getting some exercises in during the day. Though I know for me, it's been tough and my therapy usually ends up being every day chores since I have a ways to go. Much love to you all!!
