DIY: Frugal and Safe Air Fresheners

He had been living on his own for a few years, where as I just graduated from college and moved back in with my mom.

More Than Enough

More than Enough

I have 24 hours in a day. You have 24 hours in a day. No more. No less. My husband brings in a certain amount of money each month and a certain amount is already spoken for each month.  No more. No less. Have you ever read the account of the feeding of the multitudes? Let’s go over Matthew 14:15-21, shall we? 15As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 16Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to Read more […]

5 Ways to Make Money from Home

5 Ways to Make Money from Home

I don’t know about you, but I was raised in a home where my mother worked from 9am – 5pm and I was a latch-key kid. At some point when I entered junior high, she worked two jobs and she returned to school to get an associate’s degree — all while pregnant with her 4th child! (This is where I inherit my insanity.)

And while I applaud the women’s liberation movement for the many freedoms it brought to women, I also wish Read more […]
