Episode 3- Less is More

February 25th, 2018

As we recorded this episode the season of Lent has just bgun. Chip and Brittany share some thoughts aroud the idea of how giving something up for a season can actually be not so much of a loss but really in the end a big gain... how "Less" can be "More" and how powerful that can be in our lives personally but also how we might see that practice can work within our families and children. Chip and Brittany share some real life stories of how one family used an opportunity of sharing the abundance of what they had with a family in need to show their children waht a Compassionate and Charitable Spirit can look like in action... and the really amazing thing was the children responded to the opportunity and blew the parents away!

Here's a great resource on this topic for your family from author Jen Hatmaker her book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess (Disturbed by her family's comfortableness with American excess, Jen Hatmaker writes with humor and depth about their unique social and spiritual decision to live by a rule of seven, reducing material possessions/ distractions in order to connect with a greatly increased God.)

Either way we would love to hear from you and add your voice to the conversation.
