Hello to all my fellow Fearless Heart readers.
For the past few years I have been writing in this space. They have been good years and I have learned so much in this journey with you. Every time I look back at my writings I realize how far God has brought me.
However, in the past few months I have felt God calling me to write in a new space. The writing is still about my journey, but it’s also about the journey of my family as we learn to lead a simpler life.
Why a simple life?
To us, Simplified Living is not just about de-cluttering your house, your schedule or your clothes closet.
Simplified Living is not a one-time event.
Simplified Living is a conscious lifestyle choice. It is a daily exercise of learning to deal with the excess that invades our lives.
For our family we are working to simplify these areas of our life, individually and together:
- Household items
- Clothes Closet
Your list may look different than ours – each person, each family has to evaluate what that looks like for them. Your process may even be different, and that’s ok – we are here to simply share our road map with you. Use what you will and leave the rest.
The truth is….everyone has areas that need simplifying – areas that take up valuable time managing the un-important at the expense of the important – namely relationship with others.
The Simplified Life blog marks that journey. The journey of purging the un-important to pursue the important.
I don’t know if I will come back to this Fearless Heart space to continue writing, but for right now Fearless Heart will remain up so that people can still look and read through the post in this space. I pray that what you find here is encouraging, but I hope you will also come see me over at my new home www.simplifiedlife.net .
We would love to have you part of the conversation there as we explore what it means to live a simpler life. Our heart is to encourage others to live simply so that they can focus on what really matters.
Keeping it Simple,
