A Simple Life: A Little Shift In Perspective



What is on the “menu” for A Simple Life in this new season of blog writing? 

I am going to make the blog more about the reality of my life and the life of my family, and a little less about trying to come up with snazzy blog posts that I think people want to read… and that I think 1000’s of other Christian Homeschooling moms are writing about.

There will be more about the missions, relief organizations, and ministries that I really am supporting and praying for. 

There will be more about working from home and how to make some supplemental income – legitimately and without feeling sleazy or like you are just trying to sell to your friends all the time. 

There will be more about food and natural living, natural healing – and the reality of the need for western meds on occasion:-)

There might be a bit or two about travel – frugal travel, of course. 

And there should be more than I have currently written about homeschooling and home life. 

But what I want most is interaction. How did you come to this blog? What do you want to know more about? What can I do for you? 

Blessings on this new season of life. 

Are You Ready for a Simple Life?

Are you making good money, but it is never enough?

Do you have lots of things or have done lots of things, but you still don’t feel fulfilled or satisfied?

Are you so busy trying to make money, that you forgot why you are doing it?

Do you feel restless and overwhelmed?

You are not alone. I was there once. Millions of people are there now. Are you ready for a change?

 About 7 years ago, I was ready for a change in my life. I was making good money working in the tech industry, I had a nice car, nice house in a good neighborhood, and ate out and socialized a lot. I had a life most people would admire. But I wasn’t happy.

 So God got a hold of me and changed my heart. Part of that heart change was the desire to live a simpler life.

 As I started to make changes in my life, I needed God and people to help me to understand what a simpler life looked and felt like. And after 7 years of that help, this blog has emerged.

In this blog, I hope to help others walk away from the cluttered, consumer driven world we currently live in and make a path to “A Simple Life”.

Some come join me in a couple of days when I share how we walked away from $220,000 worth of debt bondage.
