Years ago I made a decision that I was going to live simply.  I basically came to this decision out of necessity.  I looked around and noticed that I could only do a few things well.  I noticed that I did not have an unlimited supply of time, money, emotional energy and leadership influence.  However,…

  Isn’t it ironic that we live in a world full of modern conveniences that are supposed to make life easier and more efficient, yet we find ourselves more stressed and busier than ever?  We live in a world of washing machines, dishwashers, microwaves, automobiles, smartphones, and stores on every corner—all designed to make our…
