I plan to focus on living more simply in my life and would love to hear your thoughts, ideas, and encouragement along the way of what this means to you.
I have felt a yearning, an urging if you will, deep within myself for some time now about wanting to “live more simply.” To be honest, I don’t really know what this means for me yet. It is time for me to go more deeply.
This isn’t just about saving money, though that certainly couldn’t hurt anything. Instead, this is a spiritual journey that I want to apply in practical ways in my life. My goal is to be intentional about “de-cluttering” my life so that I can live a more meaningful life, to be connected to the Sacred, to the Creator, to God.
I am reading Richard Foster’s book, Freedom of Simplicity: Finding Harmony in a Complex World.” A friend of mine, Drew Toler, reminded me about this book recently. You do not have to read it along with me, but I just wanted you to know about it. You can read more about Richard Foster here.
Finally, I plan to share other resources along the way. If you know of others, please share them with me in the Comments section below. If you would like to receive a daily email reminder about this journey, you can sign up in the upper right hand corner of this page.
Here, take my hand, will you walk with me as best you can? I’d love the company on the Simplicity Journey.
