The Livin’ Lightly Manifesto



We Believe in Freedom.

  • Possessions and the consumption of endless stuff will not dictate our life.
  • We will not be slaves to the lender and will flee debt like the plague.
  • Our best energy will be spent with family instead of a few tired hours in the evenings.
  • There are millions of unheard voices screaming from bondage and they need our help.


We Believe in Simplicity.

  • Less is more.
  • Quiet is good.
  • Being short is ok.
  • Time and experiences are worth more than s-t-u-f-f.


We Believe in Intentionality.

  • My time, talents and treasures are gifts from God that we are merely stewards of.
  • We are accountable to God with how we spend each and every moment of our life.
  • Life is too short to cruise on autopilot so we will intentionally pursue love; for God & man.


We Believe in Sustainability.

  • You are what you eat.
  • Consuming a diet that is good for both the earth and your body is worth the effort.
  • The price tag is not the whole picture.
  • Landfills are unnecessary.
  • Trees take a long time to grow.
