NEW - Back to Basics
Like so many others, our family has felt the nudging to get "back to basics" and be less reliant on others for our day-to-day needs. While we trust our Heavenly Father, we can't ignore the many examples in His Word and through history of those who chose to prepare and pray.
We are slowly learning and converting our suburban home into a "homestead in the city." I've decided to offer some of the resources we have found the most useful as we've embarked on this journey.
I also invite you to join the discussion about getting "Back to Basics" at my new blog: www.journeytosimplicity.com. That is the place where I am journaling my small steps toward simplicity.
