Living With Less To Have More

Living With Less [part 1 & part 2] was the topic of Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk these past two days.

he featured guest is Jill Savage, an author and speaker. She is the author of seven books including Professionalizing Motherhood, My Hearts At Home, Real Moms…Real Jesus, No More Perfect Moms and her most recent release Living With Less So Your Family Has More.

I found this an important subject to listen to, to talk and think about, especially during this time of the year, with Thanksgiving and the holiday shopping right around the corner.

Living with less means to live with less stuff, less activities, less stress, but with more time, more relaxation and more contentment.

We don’t need to work our tail off in order to afford a lot of nice things to make us happy.

The most important things in life we need and want are free –

  • God
  • Air
  • Sun
  • Joy
  • Hug
  • Love
  • Hope
  • Time
  • Faith
  • Peace
  • Smile
  • water
  • Dream
  • Family
  • Beauty
  • Health
  • Kindness
  • Gratitude
  • Friendship
  • Appreciation
  • Encouragement
  • etc.

I resolve to live with less of the things I don’t need (stuff and stress) and live with more of the things I want (time and contentment).
