For many years Audrey and her family have been pursuing principle-centered living. It is a journey that has been bumpy but rewarding. Through all of the books, all the experiences and all the trial and error, a few governing principles have emerged as most powerful for obtaining and maintaining peace–peace of conscience, peace in the home and peaceful interactions in the world.
Audrey and her life are far from perfect, but the re-centering these principles provide is a constant source of aid in difficult times and direction in good times, as she diligently strives to be more than she is.
