Hot! Why (and How) We Quit the Rat Race

Living Simply

I was always a simple girl at heart. I always looked at things differently as a girl…I wondered why people always seemed to be busy, but not enjoying life. I never wanted my life to be lost in the hustle and bustle. I looked at things in the perspective of, “What does this matter years from now…”

As I grew older and had my own family, I knew I didn’t want to be part of the rat race. I wanted a simple life focused on God and family.

Yet, the world we live in is busy. It is complicated. And early in our marriage, we were headed toward the rat race. My husband worked late hours and never was home for dinner. With focusing on the Lord though, most days, we now enjoy three meals a day together.

Join me as I talk about how we quit the rat race and why we live to keep up with God, and not the Joneses.

And while I know that this life isn’t for everyone, and some people enjoy the hustle and bustle, it is still important to remember who and what we are being busy for…

  1. I really enjoyed your podcast. This was my first time listening to a podcast on my own. My bible study small group listened to a few last summer but I’ve never on my own. Thank you so much. I will be praying for that getaway idea. I think it would be amazing. I loved everything you said and it’s just what I needed to hear.
