Imagine a life with less, to have time for… more?

My last post was one of a new direction for Counter Culture. I explained that this change stems from a desire to write more freely — more simply.

This same attitude is something my wife and I have decided to carry-over into all facets of our lives — as much as is possible with a newborn and a toddler. We have committed to living more simply. Not ‘sell all your belongings’ simply, but rather ‘use what we have more wisely and with more intentionality’ — simply.

Ponder on these thoughts more a moment:

A new baby, a new direction for ‘Counter Culture’, and a desire for simplicity

My second son was born last week. What a wonderful blessing. However, with such a life change comes a time to re-evaluate priorities and goals. So often we get caught up in the day-to-day that we forget what direction we’re even going in life.

It is because of this reflective attitude that I’ve decided to change directions in what I write about here on Counter Culture. I’ve already updated the header graphic and the About page, so you probably have an idea of the direction I will be going.
