Do I Have to Be a Minimalist to Live Simply?

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

When you hear the word simple do you think minimalism? Living simply doesn’t mean you have to live in a tiny house, a farmhouse, or even the country. You can live simply right where you are. It is more about the state of your heart than the state of your home. Because I believe when your heart is turned toward Jesus, you will naturally desire less of the things of this world.

So what does it really mean then to live simply? Listen today and find out what I mean when I am simply living for Him!

This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone.  I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.

Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life-changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.

    This podcast was so heart stirring for me. This is an area I’ve been struggling with lately. Thinking that stuff would fill the void or emptiness I’m feeling in my life, now I’m overwhelmed with the clutter & still feel unhappy. I’ve also thought that if I declutter & remove the stuff, that will make me happy. Now after listening to your podcast I realize that really I just need Jesus right now more then ever. I’m a Christian & have been for almost 15 years now. Somewhere along the path I’ve wondered astray a little. I’ve let the old worldly ways of thinking I needed more to be happy infiltrate my mind. Now I know that I need to spend more time with my heavenly father & less time fretting over things & he’ll help it all fall into place exactly where he wants it to be. Thank you so much for doing these podcast & blog post. You have blessed me many times through sharing what’s on your mind & your heart. Praying that God continues to bless you & your family & your ministry.
