I’ve been “preaching” simple living for well over a decade and pursuing it since my third child was born in 2000. It prepared me (although not perfectly) for the life we now live–eleven people, two pets, 250 square feet, on the road full time. That demands simplicity.
People are often asking how we do it–keeping the stuff down to a minimum, focusing on family instead of all the trimmings, living with less space and clothes and junque. Many of you even ask for guidance as you pursue a similar simplifying lifestyle.
On those lines, I’m happy to give you a peek into my life and my head. Elsie from Richly Rooted interviewed me over a year ago on this very topic, and I’d love to share it with our friends and readers.

Read about our “life downsizing” as we lost health, home, business, and worldly security all at once. Read about how our travels and the world we live in have changed our family and our mindset.
