More Than Words for Moms {Review & Giveaway!}

I love words. Seriously LOVE them. My chosen career path upon leaving high school was to become a crypto-linguist with US Army Military Intelligence. During that job, I learned and used foreign languages, which are a huge passion of mine. I speak several of them, and even in English, my native tongue, I love dissecting words. I like to break them down and discover what they mean, where they came from, and how they can apply in different contexts. When I heard about this Bible study More Than Words For Moms, I knew that it would be a perfect fit for me! Instead of just reading Bible Read More

WIN a copy of Dave Ramsey’s ‘Financial Peace Revisited’ Book!!

If you’ve been around my blog for a while, then you know I’m CRAZY about Dave Ramsey and Financial Peace University! I’ve been following his principles for over a decade now, and we have managed to pay off all of our debt (over $100k worth!!), travel the world, pay cash for a house, and leave full time employment to go to seminary and follow God’s call for our lives! I cannot express enough how FREEING it is to have complete freedom over our lives, to go and do whatever Jesus needs! Because we are debt free and so frugal with our finances, our monthly expenses Read More

To put things simply, people spend more when they swipe a card over using cash. It’s all about the way your brain registers the money as a tangible resource leaving your possession. When you swipe a card, it’s an abstract thing – you Read More

WIN a *SIGNED* copy of Better Together

A few months ago, I did a book review about this life-changing book, Better Together: Because You’re Not Meant to Mom Alone. It has had an incredible impact on my life. There are some books that are so jam-packed with wisdom that you find yourself highlighting entire pages. This is one of those books. Here is the excerpt from my original review in February: Here’s something that’s hard to admit… I’m lonely.   My 3 closest friends live in other states (2 in Colorado and one in Texas), and most of my other friends are similarly spread all over the country and the world. I guess Read More
