I believe that materialism, in all forms, is one of the root causes of our world’s plight and chaos, as well as one of The Enemy’s most wicked tools. As such, I strive to minimize our dependence on “stuff” and instead celebrate our accomplishments, milestones and successes with practical gifts or wonderful memories. We keep our gift-givings to basic, preferably handmade gifts and try to fulfill our needs and desires frugally and without excess.
God amazes us with his abilities to bless us in this aspect. A little inspiration here, a little creativity there, and we find our needs cared for without spending a dime, or very few dimes anyway. Our goal as a family is to walk the narrow road together, teaching our daughter how to live and follow the teachings of Christ.
