Simple Living

Four years ago I became passionate about simplifying my life and my families life.  The journey has looked vastly different at different points of life over the past four years but I keep coming back to simple living.

I long to simplify my life, to live in a way that the things around me are not distracting me from the things that matter.  To have time to “be” me and to always be “present” in the moments.  To be able to enjoy my family without needing to control each and every second spent together.  To be able to engage fully with God, deepening my prayer life, and thus my spiritual life.  To reuse more than I buy new.  To pay off debt and start saving, while living in a one income household.  To de-clutter physically, mentally and spiritually.  To eat food as close to it’s natural state as possible.  To make time for me – to treat my body as the beautiful creation it is.  To treat the Earth as the beautiful creation it is.  To get back to the basics so that in the midst of the craziness around me, I can be a light that shines love and hope for the future.

This is where my journey will be documented.
