    Been thinking.... I'm no financial guru. I've not been trained in politics. Only know enough about the law to keep me out of trouble. Don't have a degree in economics. But I'm out of debt, own my home, am able to contribute to charities, eat well, pay my taxes, and in general have my...

    I guess we all want folks to view us in certain ways. Whether on FV or in real life, I really want to be considered as: 1. a person who lives her faith and doesn't just talk about it 2. a person who has gained wisdom over the years 3. a person who is a loving wife, mother, and daughter 4...

    I was curious, how many of you had spouses who were completely on board with your journey towards a more simple life? And for those of you whose spouses weren't completely on board, but are now, what steps did you take to ease them into this? I've recently felt the need to live a more...

  17. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I'm just curious what people think about unstructured time and down-time for their kids. I allow my kids 2 activities outside of school at any given time. This has given us many free evenings and weekends to just hang out or bike ride or go to the park or the library etc. It has also kept...

  19. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    We have to tend to agree to disagree here. We both think totally different when it comes to politics. In fact, he doesn't get near as interested in elections as I do. Fortunately Justin is very interested in politics, so we discuss it together.

    When I look out mine I see the butterfly bush off our deck. Beyond that is the common area of our neighborhood and some trees - there are no houses directly behind us - just open space.
