Hi! 👋 I am going to try blogging again. I started about 3 years ago and then I hit a MAJOR depression and quit.
I have no clear idea of where this blog is going but I intend to post honest reviews of products, real life stories, and discuss our journey into Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace. Which means I’ll be sharing ways that we save money using coupons (or promotional codes), money saving apps, sales ads, and other bloggers I follow like Money Saving Mom. I will probably share what I call my side swag with you.
I will also discuss various ways we give back to our community. Yes we tithe and donate to charities while trying to get out of debt. It’s important to us that we don’t take short cuts at the expense of our Faith. So yes some days are hard and we feel like we aren’t getting ahead but when we see all the good our church does and how appreciative our local charities are it makes sense to us to put God first.
I am a Christian. A wife. A mother to a 21 year old College student and a 13 year old Middle schooler. Being the parent to a teenager is hard and to a young adult is weird. I am learning my place in each of their lives and realizing my role as a parent is as different to each of them as they are to each other. It feels like it might be easier to have kids closer in age but that was not God’s plan for me. Sometimes I make mistakes and sometimes I have parenting wins so I’m sure you’ll read about both.
I look forward to starting this journey again and hope that you enjoy the ride. 😊
