Taking a Week Off

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Steve and Christy are taking the week off from podcasting, but will be back next week with more discussion about simplicity.

It’s Really…a new server!

Friday, February 20th, 2009

It apparently was “really that simple” for a hacker to mess up our site (along with other sites that we host), and so we have been forced to migrate to a new server with a new host. ┬áThis will actually be a very positive move, and ironically was already in the works. ┬áThe recent hacking of our blog, however, forced an expedited move.

Everything appears to be working properly now, but if you run into any problems whatsoever on the new server, please let us know.

Simplicity in Education

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

After a couple of introductory episodes, we start to discuss more details about specific areas in this episode. When it comes to education, many may not realize that there are alternatives. Despite its controversial nature in some circles, homeschooling is a completely legal alternative to public schooling. In this episode, we discuss some of the reasons behind our decision to homeschool (our reasons may not be what you expected!), and why we feel that it has simplified our lives in some ways.

Motivations for Simplicity

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

We think that it’s important that whatever decisions we make in life, we are motivated by the proper motivations. In this episode, we discuss some of our thoughts regarding our own motivations in these areas. We also talk about some other things that might motivate people to change their thinking, and not all of those motivations are healthy.

Introductory Episode

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

In this introductory episode of “It’s Really That Simple”, we converse about the general topic of “simplicity” and discuss some of our basic thoughts on how it impacts faith, education, and nutrition. This episode sets up the podcast by giving the listener some ideas of the types of things that will be discussed in future episodes.

We hope it will whet your appetite for more discussions about simple living in many areas of our lives!
