What’s Now with SLW!

  • Let’s Get Ready for a Simple, More Meaningful Lent & Easter  – Jan. 15 SLW! Podcast
  • New Year, New Daily Inspiration: free Simpler Living Alternative Daily Calendar – Jan. 24 – “Quality time” can be a myth, an excuse to spend a little time together in order to spend more time working to make more money to accumulate more stuff. Quantity time is also needed for healthy relationships, being there… in sports and fun, worship, talking, the arts. If you find this is a problem, discipline yourself to keep track of relationship time and increase it 10% each month till you reach your goal. Jan. 25 – Life Standard: Non-conform Freely. The forces against living simply are extremely powerful and devious. Some of them are quiet, unwritten… like how we dress in church, how our house will look at Christmas time. But many of them can be loud, in-your-face forces that work to get as deeply into our pocketbook as possible. (See September for media pressures.)
