Do you crave a simpler life? Less chaos? Less “stuff.”
Recently when we traveled to Jamestown and Yorktown VA, I noted that the recreated 18th century farmhouse was so simple. There was basically one room and a loft to take care of and there was very limited clothing for each person. Now I understand this was out of necessity as well as limited resources. Certainly doing laundry back then was a much more difficult task, therefore each person having 1 -2 sets of clothing made more sense. Plus they just didn’t have the resources for more.
Yet as I stood there in the house I thought to myself, “How awesome would it be to have this house in today’s world with all of our technology?”
Join me on my journey to clear the clutter as I am simply living...for Him! I am a homeschooling mom sharing about my faith, family, hobby-farm life, and Jesus. I am also an author and speaker and love sharing my journey with others- and I am all about keeping it real and authentic! Join me as I seek less of this world and more of Jesus!
