- Cecile Andrews, Queen of Simplicity Circles – Feb. 15 Podcast
- Simpler Living Alternative Daily Calendar – Feb. 10 – Freedom from anxiety is characterized by three inner attitudes. If what we have we receive as a gift, and if what we have is to be cared for by God, and if what we have is available to others, then we possess freedom from anxiety. This is the inward reality of simplicity. However, ifwhat we have we believe we have gotten and if what we have we believe we must hold onto, and if what we have is not available to others, then we live in anxiety. Such persons will never know simplicity regardless of the outward contortions they may put themselves through in order to live ‘the simple life.’ -Richard Foster
