Time. This question of what I should be doing with mine has plagued me for a very long time (the irony, I know). It is why I chose to study simplicity in the first place. I just want to know what God wants me to do with my life! Part of our job as Christians is to wrestle with this question of what God wants us to do with our lives. What does He want? How does He want us to spend our time, our money, our talents?
Carolyn Rust is a mother of two amazing young adults, an accountant for a furniture manufacturer, and a child of God. She loves knitting and cooking.

What would they see that I really treasure?
