the people i’m meeting
June 23, 2008
since my wife and i began intentionally becoming minimal, i have met some inspiring people through this blog and others (met them digitally, that is). today, i read an online journal about a family in new york living under a $10,000 budget.
as i read their story, it became very obvious that i have no desire to live that lifestyle – nor would it fit the life that God has called me live. but, i do find inspiration in their story. i find inspiration in the fact that they can live on such a budget and how that transfers to my family. and secondly, i find inspiration that they are able to detach from the temptations and entrapments from this world that we have grown so accustomed to. it seems that i could learn much from them.
here’s their story: our simple lifestyle.
