Now passion is a word that's been thrown around quite a bit and not given very much thought. I don't believe we are born with one passion and that we should follow it relentlessly to the end of our days. I see that our interests are ever changing, as well as habits and skill set.
A more simplistic lifestyle does come with its challenges. To be part of a culture where the pursuit of the American dream is idolized and materialism, the norm, I can't think of a more brave movement to join than minimalism and slow living.

This life was never supposed to be a breeze. That's not what the Bible says. But there is a reward for enduring; there is hope and joy everlasting at the finish line.
