As the byline says I am “living simply by God’s grace” which has a double meaning. The first being that I recognize that without my Savior I would be nothing. I have been saved simply by his grace alone and nothing that I can or have done can save me. I know that as an imperfect person he is daily showing me grace for the mistakes I make in daily life. I try my best to learn from those mistakes and conform more to his likeness.
The second meaning is that I try to live a simple life that honors God. This means that I am trying to live frugal and naturally in order to glorify Him and better serve others. Some might call me a health freak or hippie, which I am in part.
As a children of God I believe that we have been given the responsibility to care for our bodies, family and the world he has entrusted us. Our bodies are the temple of the living God and we are to honor God with our bodies.
I prepare almost all my food from scratch using local or organically grown/raised food. I also make many of my own body care products and herbal supplements so that I can know what is going into/on my body as well as save money. We were appointed stewards of this earth so I try to avoid as much waste as possible. I have fun exploring ways to re-use what I can or find non-disposable options.
