Living Simply

I have always liked Richard Foster’s book, Freedom of Simplicity. It is a challenging book for me that I re-read every year to continue the personal goal of continually simplifying my life. As I watch the shopping madness of the culture, and the fear that we won’t give and/or receive enough at Christmas, I wonder what I can do to avoid being caught up in the activity. How do I bring calmness and simplicity into my life and the lives of those around me? But then, what is simple and what is complicated? Do we each have our own definitions and our own standards? I know the goal…..but I am still not sure what it looks like.

I seek transition from consumerism and materialism with a desire to live with only what I need so that I am not taking from others.
