Life Simplification

The bottom line is this:

Stuff = Stress

Our goal — reduce stuff, reduce stress. Simple.

 

Urgent Needs

This post is brought to you by:  S.O.S.  WE NEED HELP! Since Darren broke our silence, many questions have been asked on how to help! THANK YOU!  First, we are struggling with what should have been a somewhat easier goal than we ever imagined.  Our basic goal was to...

Love and Sacrifice

The girls and I read a story tonight at bedtime about how love is an action, and not just a few nice words.  We read in the Bible about a lady named Dorcas who sewed clothes for those who were poor and homeless, and how she showed her love for Jesus and others by not...

Fear

Fear.  It can be crippling.  It can suck out the joy in our spirits and replace it with insecurity, distrust, depression, panic, and many other paralyzing traits.  We’ve all felt it, and know the differing tolls it takes on our mind, spirit, and body. I am a planner. ...

Going… Going… Gone

Our quickly thrown together garage sale was a great success! We still have a few things left to sell, but our house is pretty empty! Truly, I thought it was going to be a lot harder to let go of things that I cared about at some level, but it wasn’t! Thanks to a few...

Saying Goodbye

Loss isn’t something we humans deal well with much of the time.  It’s hard to lose, isn’t it?  Whether in big or small measurements, it’s something we can all relate too.  I have lost a job, lost a friend, lost an extremely close grandma, lost a dog, lost a secure...

Sell it, Give it, Pitch it … Plan it!

What can you NOT live without? No, Really, think about it. We have all probably thought about what we would grab if the house caught on fire and we only had time to grab a handful of things. If you haven’t, think about it for a second…
