Road Trip

Hi everybody! We're heading out this morning for a two week road trip to see family! I am hoping to check in here and there.

My Mom told me that the first week of August is Simplify Your Life week - please join me as I spend the entire week on this topic. I'm planning to post on:

* Clearing out clutter of our heart and home - what do the two have in common?
* Simple Living - what does the Bible say?
* How planning simplifies my life.
* A favorite book on living a simpler life.

Should be lots of fun - hope you'll join me! I'm up for suggestions if you have something you'd like me to address the fifth day.

See you later!

Have a wonderful time!! I'll be praying for your families safety while traveling.

I'm actually working on the simplifying thing...doing a great Bible Study right now by Donna Partow..."Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be" A 90 Day Guide to Living the Proverbs 31 Life.

I'm in week 2 and so far, it's been challenging in a good way!

Have Fun on your Road Trip!!

Ahhh, MONICA!

Okay, here's the reason you are so an "Emily" to me, which I apologize for b/c I'm sure to have called you that before. ;o) One of my very best friends from college is named Emily and totally your doppelganger! She's a wonderful person, so it's not a bad thing, LOL!

Monica. Have fun. Hope the kiddos enjoy your trip. Thanks for e-mailing me those take-along tips for the car. I am excited to make a little car basket for my girls. Our trip isn't for a couple weeks. I'm looking forward to your simplify posts!

I am a regular reader but have never made a comment. I wanted to wish you a great vacation and cannot wait for the upcoming posts. I recently did a guest post for a site on a similar subject and continue on my journey to a simpler life. Here it is.
