Jumping into the reading for my January goal, and I’m pretty excited! I would LOVE to have you join me. I’ll be starting with The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness.
I went to a workshop with Dave Ramsey several years ago, but newly married with a baby on the way, I wasn’t in a place to be ready to listen to the information. My life has changed since then — three more kids, finished my Master’s degree, another separation/reconciliation — I’m ready to listen now.
Money is one of “those” things that I have honestly avoided most of my life. I know you need it, and I’ve worn myself out working for it. I try to budget and stick with the budget I’ve set each month. I do a fair to partly cloudy job — no credit cards, but lawyer fees and student loans from my undergraduate years, and with five kids, I quite often find myself at the end of the money before the month.
With B ready to head off to college, I’m realizing that I haven’t taught her to be the self-reliant adult I was hoping to in all the areas I wanted (and needed) to. I haven’t understood how to make money work for me, so I haven’t been able to teach her the skills she needs. I hear that it’s never too late to start good habits, and I’m desperately praying that is true.
Kids are in bed. The house is settling into the nightly hum of dishwasher running and fridges buzzing. It’s the perfect time to crack open a book!

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, great blog! agen judi casino
Thanks! I’ll check it out!
You are so awesome! I do not suppose I’ve truly read through a
single thing like that before. So great to find
another person with unique thoughts on this subject
matter. Really.. thanks for starting this up. This site is one thing that is required on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!
Thanks for the encouragement! I hope what I have to say reaches someone — that through my struggles, someone else can benefit.
Excellent blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?
I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other
experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations,
please let me know. Bless you!
Thank you! I don’t know of any discussion boards. I can recommend the CoDA support group I’ve been attending. You can get more information on all the groups at https://www.facebook.com/groups/houseofhopesupportgroup
I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site.
It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here

I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your blog.
It looks like some of the written text on your
content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult
time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
