Minimalism from a Biblical Point of View —

Biblical Minimalism© is "a complete, whole-person release of anything unlike Jesus, a letting go of everything that hinders us from following Him wholeheartedly and single-mindedly, and a relinquishing of all that brings us under bondage to this earthly, very temporary life." Cheryl E. Smith

The Less You Have, The Less You Have To Worry About

Today, I am sharing at No Sidebar about how a hurricane and two french doors made me realize anew how very grateful I am that we have downsized our lives.
I would like to invite you to click HERE to read what God laid upon my heart!


  1. The Lord taught you so much through that hurricane, most especially His great faithfulness and confirmation that the minimalism journey you began, is in His perfect will. Funny how a hurricane meant to toss things to and fro, instead solidified your resolve to continue as the Lord has led you.

    I remember hearing James Dobson talk about buying an elaborate swing set for his children and then building it. As the weeks and months continued, there was so much maintenance and upkeep of that swing set. He said he became a slave to it. The moral of his story as he explained, stuff can enslave us. Indeed it does.

    Thank you so much for sharing all that the Lord is teaching you. You and your sweet family are such an inspiration of trusting the Lord's provision in everything.

    Sending you much love,

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, dear friend. That is an amazing story about James Dobson and the swing set. SO true that our stuff enslaves us. You are right, it is so odd how a hurricane solidified our faith. So thankful for you and your faithful friendship, support, and encouragement. May the dear Lord bless you richly this Christmas!

  2. I really enjoyed the nosidebar post. I ebb and flow in my minimalist journey. I have been seeking encouraging words like your as I gear up to flow again. Thank you for taking the time to write.

    1. Thank you so much for your visit and kind comment, Steven! I can surely relate to the ebb and flow and how life just gets in the way sometimes. Your words were such a blessing to me today. May God continue to strengthen and encourage you on your minimizing journey, and I hope you will visit here again!


I love hearing from you, dear readers! Let's chat!
