Day 6 - of 30 Days to a Simplier Life

Me and Susan somewhere in Washington State

Today I have another "Guest Blogger" Today my guest is my sis-in-law and friend Susan Cunningham. Susan is married to my hubby's brother and we have shared much of life's journey together. We both love to travel and hike in the national parks and have had many opportunities to do that together. Susan is extremely creative and creates beautiful handmade cards, bookmarks and photo albums. She also has a great travel blog at

So here it is! Thank you Sue.

Two Areas to Simplify:
Something that is always on my mind... eating.
Most of us always think for the new year, of ways to cut back calories and shed a few pounds.
  • simplify your food.
  • Back to the basics of whole foods, and just a few ingredients.
  • Use your small dessert plates for your dinner plates.
Who could not use a time of refreshing, especially after the holidays?
  • Take at least 5 minutes a day to read your Bible, in a quiet place.
  • Then spend time praying and listening to God, reflecting what He would want you to do.

A couple links that will help you with these areas:

Thanks Bev. That is one of the big reasons I do a blog. I, of course, hope it helps and inspires and gives hope to some who stop by but I would probably do it anyway at this point even if noone came as I have found it to be a great way to express what is in my heart. That is why I like the flexibility to sometimes write about serious life changing things but also have some fun posts, family posts and anything else that I have in my heart to do. I think it is alot like Grandpas e-mails were to him. I think if he was still with us he would be learning how to blog. :)
