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.

Yay Joanne!

I am believing that the effort to learn this software and the software to learn you will be worth it.
I know you have missed blogging and we have missed hearing your voice in this place.
Giving January something of gain instead of being steeped with loss.
I love you and am proud of you dear one!
Joyous Friday!


This is so great! It is nice to have you back blogging again.

Take care and I will be looking forward to your next post!





It gets easier! The more you speak the more it will automatically recognize your voice. Good to see your post!
