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.
