This is slightly off topic but I wanted to share it. It involves living a simpler lifestyle; living off grid on a homestead, or in a van or cave! There are various degrees of this lifestyle in the videos that follow below, where regular people have chosen to go all out and others just tested the water. The question is, what are you willing to give up? We live in a comfort loving, consumer based, techy society with much of our creature comforts readily available for our disposal. It involves a lifestyle of being resourceful and resilient, living independent of the societal dictates, living off the land, swapping produce with a neighbour, harnessing your own energy using the natural landscape i.e. the winds, water and using solar panels, and just learning to step away from the rat race.
This lifestyle is not for the faint hearted, but these people have thrown caution to the wind and just done it. I found them inspirational; I’ve chosen a handful to share with you. As Christians we are to live a God fearing life, and something that is as life changing as this, would need to be earnestly prayed about, seeking the place where God has ordained for you to be. If you want to know more about this or how they did it, many have a step by step guide on their YouTube channels:
