welcome to be still and live ministry

Be Still and Live is a ministry focused on uncovering God’s truths for a simple life in the midst of a society that has no tolerance for stillness. This ministry exists to inspire simplicity in the hearts of today’s busy women.

Our passion is to uncover the deep desire to live differently and to offer encouragement on the journey towards stillness, peace and simplicity. We do this by offering a variety of connection opportunities for groups and individuals. Check out all our connection points above.

So here we are, temporarily fixed by time. We built our lives, trying to accomplish much and trying to help our family succeed, but this grand structure of a life we envisioned now suddenly seems more like a prison. We are stressed, overwhelmed, and we want out. You don’t want it that way. You want something different. Something more. And yet something less. The simple life. (simplelife, Rainer)

If you can identify with this reality, join us and Get Your Simple On today!

Claim the life that was specifically designed for you and embark on the simplelife journey with us!

We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to talk more about the Connection Points we offer – contact us today.
