Motivational Moments 1: Where You Need to Be

Its the small things in life that really can get you thinking about your actions.

Hopefully this will be motivational to you to keep the course with God today. Here is my mini testimony.   I saw this printer at Target on a Friday. It was perfect for my business, but it was too costly. The original price was $170 and it was on sale for $90. Though it was a great deal, it wasnโ€™t in the budget.

I really needed a printer so I prayed about it.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ On Tuesday morning I was going to check some secondhand places but pulled back because I...

25 Indoor Kids Activities

I do this because I want to see what they are doing and also to make sure they don’t walk out. This time I caught myself watching the other children  more. I noticed how different they played from mine. In turn what they were getting in trouble for. I found myself disagreeing or agreeing with their parenting skills . “I wouldn’t punish him for that” or “go mom he deserved...

Guess what?! Jessica from Squishy Face Collection has given me the Liebster Award! Thank you Jessica!!! The Liebster awardย  is given by new bloggers to other new bloggers.

And, I made a new friend! It also...

Organize My Life: Budgeting tools

Oh budgeting, how I have fallen in, out, and back in love with you. Budgeting is one of those things that can really be frustrating until you can get it right. The purpose of budgeting is to know where every cent is going at all times.ย  Not every budgeting tool is perfect for everyone since we all think differently. I have changed my systems a few times over the past years. Here are some great tools that I have found along the way. Budget down to zero every month: You’ve heard it before, I’m sure.
