God Is Our Fortress [Psalm 46 Personalized]

“God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trou­ble.“ There­fore I will not fear though my life crum­bles before my eyes, though I lose every­thing I once held dear. whether it’s my fam­ily or friends, or my job and all my possessions. “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habi­ta­tion […]

What would you enjoy doing if money were no object?

I watched a video tonight that cut deep. The ques­tion was asked, “How would you enjoy spend­ing your life if money were no object?” Watch the video for yourself.

Stop Calling Me a Minimalist

I just finished reading Everett’s latest blog post “F*** Minimalism“. He’s come to some realizations that minimalism isn’t the end all. It’s a good reminder to those of us who’ve claimed the hip tag of “minimalist”. I specifically chose Live [Simply] Free because my life isn’t just about minimalism. That was just one part of […]

On Spontaneity and Having Fun

Living simple is suppose to create happiness and freedom but sometimes that’s not enough. In my case I’m living more simple than ever before and yet I’ve noticed a significant diminish in my “cheeriness” level. If you asked me what’s wrong, I couldn’t tell you. Everything had actually been going in my favor. Yet something […]
