What’s Now with SLW!

  • Let’s Get Ready for a Simpler Lent & Easter  – Jan. 15 Podcast
  • Thought for the Day from free Simpler Living Alternative Daily Calendar. Jan. 17 – We find meaning in life through our relationships with God, nature and people, not through stuff. Often we allow our things to own us.
