28 Days to Timeliness Giveaway

Welcome! Have you subscribed to this blog yet? You will be encouraged to simplify all areas of your life… straight to your email!  Subscribe

I do not like to be late. In fact we are usually early because I really dislike the feeling of being late for something. Having people wait for me makes me feel awful.  Yet, this is a struggle with so many of us in this busy world. Since our lives have become so full of busyness, lateness becomes a bigger problem. Well, today I have a giveaway that is the perfect resource to help you never be late again, especially if you are trying to simplify once and for all! Davonne Park’s new eBook 28 Days to Timeliness is here to help!

Davonne Parks has recently released her eBook, “28 Days to Timeliness.” She writes as a “semi-reformed late person.” This is a wonderful addition to help you focus on simplifying your time. She wrote this book, “without a lof af fluff to get straight to the point.” {love that!}

She has broken this book down into five sections and 28 days within those.  She writes about why timeliness is important {I love this section!}, simplifying your day {another favorite), decluttering your home {a girl after my own heart}, and then practical steps to really help you do these things.

If you are looking to simplify your time and simplify once and for all, this is a resource you willl not want to miss. Davonne writes from experience and as a recovering late person. She gets it, she’s been there.

Being one time is really an act of love to those around you-it shows that you put others first, and respect their time. We honor them when we are on time for them. Addionally, being on time helps to keep your focus where it should be and not on the stresses of always being late and feeling disorganized. { a feeling I loathe as a recovering messy little girl 😉 }

Now, I have a chance for you to win this great resource! Fill out the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win your very own copy of 28 Days to Timeliness.  FIVE READERS will be blessed! If you don’t want to wait, you can purchase your own at 50% off the retail price of the PDF version with this coupon code: SimplyLiving12.

Simply Homeschool Ebook Giveaway!

*This giveaway is closed. 
It’s here!  I am so excited to finally make available to you all my first eBook titled,

“Simply Homeschool: 
Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool.”

That’s what we all want right?
Get rid of clutter and experience the joy God has intended for our families on our homeschooling journeys!

This short eBook is all about what I have learned on my homeschooling journey thus far, and why I feel it is so important to keep our focus on GOD in our homeschools.

It has been an amazing journey for me and I can’t wait to encourage you all with what  I have learned along the way!

With Matthew 6:33 as the basis, this eBook will focus on what I have learned in the following areas:

  • Getting rid of physical clutter and organization tips
  • Getting rid of mental clutter
  • Curriculum choices
  • Schedules
  • Meal planning
  • Letting God lead your homeschool
  • Avoiding the comparison trap, and letting your homeschool be YOUR homeschool
  • Not letting homeschool become an idol-Keeping GOD first

It is my desire to encourage others out there to live more simply in all areas of our lives, and this eBook focuses specifically on simplifying homeschooling.

When we keep God first in our homeschools, we can have the true JOY that is meant for our families.

Excerpt from “Simply Homeschool:Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool”

“I would rather be with my children sitting at 
Jesus’ feet, than running around trying to be busy.
God has called us to raise our children and raise them up according 
to His Will.  We can’t forget that.
I truly believe that if we put the Lord first in all we do in our homeschools, He will 
bless us. We may worry that we are not doing things just right, or that our kids 
aren’t learning enough.  If my children know the Lord first and foremost, I have 
done my job.”

So grab a cup of tea, curl up, and join me as we encourage each other to Simply Live…For HIM!

I am giving away THREE copies today!  You must share this post on facebook, like Simply Living…for Him on facebook, follow me on twitter, or share this giveaway on your blog.

big announcement, giveaway, Simply...Living For Him

Big Announcement

It has always been our family’s dream to take a road trip in an RV with our kids.  Over the past year, we have really had this placed on our hearts.  

So next Summer 2012, Simply Living…For Him 
is hitting the road!

Since I have heard from many readers on this site who would like me to speak to their group, we would love to be able to book some speaking engagements while we are traveling. It would be such a blessing to meet some of you and be able to share with your group!
If you would like to have me speak at your homeschool group, church group, moms group, etc. please contact me at  We will be traveling the end of June-beginning of July.

I have  a variety of topics listed under my Speaking Opportunities page.  No event is too big or too small. I just love sharing and encouraging people to live more simply…whether it be homeschooling or in other areas of life.

We also plan on visiting with family along the way, seeing the US, and also serving those in need.

We would like to visit places where we can volunteer, and experience true simplicity in our trip.  As I have always stated, “…nothing to entertain us, but the view out the window…”
It is our desire to glorify God in all we do.  We will be documenting this entire trip-my husband is a talented graphic artist and will make a documentary about our simple life on the road.  Check out a small sampling here!

I will  be blogging along the way, so you all can follow our journey.

I look forward do hearing from you and PLEASE spread the word.
And if you know of any place that has a need where our family could volunteer, please contact me as well!

And he answered them, “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them. Luke 7:22

giveaway, heart of the matter online conference

Education As An Atmosphere…

As I am preparing for my session at Heart of the Matter’s Online Conference in August, I am getting very excited.

My topic is Education as an Atmosphere-Letting Your Home be an Atmosphere of Continuous Learning.

I love this topic.

Charlotte Mason first wrote about this in her writings in her original 6 part Original Homeschooling series during the turn of the century.  I have been reading her works this year and am inspired.

I can’t wait to share with you, encourage you, 
and hopefully inspire you!

I’ll be talking about how our homes are our biggest tool in our children’s education.  How the atmosphere in our home must be ideal to foster learning and growth spiritually.

We will also talk about how we can make our homes a place of continuous learning-
where there is no beginning and no end to learning.  
Where real life teaches our children everyday, 
far more than a textbook in a traditional school room.

There is so much to talk about and I can’t wait!  I will speak on August 9th at 12:30 pm EST.

Now if you are interested in hearing more please head over here and enter to win a FREE ticket.  Your ticket gives you access to the whole conference from Aug. 8-12.  You will also receive the goodie bag filled with resources, and access to all downloads of every session after the conference is over.  You can not miss this!
