March 2013 Article

Hello and welcome to our March Article. My name is Micah and I want to share a wonderful article I found on a blog at The author, Joshua Becker, has a thought-provoking article entitled “Benefits of Minimalism”. It’s a look at living with less in today’s society where pride has been tied to the accumulation of possessions.

Joshua states “… there is far more joy to be found in the pursuit of fewer possessions than can ever be discovered in the pursuit of more.” He goes on to list what he believes are the key benefits of consciously keeping your focus away from possessions.

One that caught immediately caught my eye was Number 7, Example for My Kids. In the day-to-day business of our lives, how often do we step back and ask ourselves, “Am I setting a good example for my children? Am I showing them what truly matters, what will follow them beyond their time on Earth and into Heaven?”

It’s an interesting read and I hope you’ll take a few minutes to look it over.
