Becoming Debt Free, Marriage and Finances!






Hey everyone,

Well, this is the year for us to work on our debt-free journey. Even though I talk about how to stay home with your kids and live on a budget, sometimes to reach our goals we have to sacrifice a little. For me, that means getting a little part-time job with a regular income to help pay off debt. Now I will still be homeschooling my girls so I am looking for a job that will work with my schedule. Although it's not ideal to go to work I am serious about paying off debt once and for all. We live very frugally and still are having a hard time paying our debt down. This has caused undue stress in my marriage and after praying about it I feel like the Lord is telling me to get a little PT job to help out. Now my plate is already full of homemaking and homeschooling and all the other hats I wear but I really want to be debt-free. So, I am looking for a job. I just had an interview for a job working 2 days a week which I feel is doable. I am waiting to hear back from them. Fingers crossed! It is a little nerve-racking to get back into the work field after being at home for so long, but I am committed to paying off debt! Will this work out? Or will it be forever? That I do not know. But the Lord knows and I will leave it up to him. As wives, it is important to be a helpmeet to our husbands that is why we were created by God to help. It doesn't mean be a slave or a doormat but truly to look at your circumstances and family and ask your self what can I do to help. I will be honest this has been very hard for me as I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom and homeschool. But as my husband's helpmeet, I am reminded that my ways are not God's ways. So I am thinking of my family and going to do my part in helping out financially. I have always wanted to help out financially in some way, I would prefer it to be from home but right now that's not an option. So I will do the next best thing and find a PT job right in my little town so I can still be close to home. I want to leave a legacy for my children about being financially independent and having a lasting marriage which means compromise. If you can't work together as a couple and learn to communicate and truly love and have respect for each other, your marriage will have trouble. Trust me I know from experience. I will have been married for 20 years come this June and it has been a long rough road.  But with God all things are possible. I have trusted the Lord for every aspect of my life and he has never let me down. Things have been hard and there are days I feel like giving up but I have put my trust in God. Don't let the enemy come in and still your joy or try to destroy your marriage and rip your family apart. Put your trust in God and be faithful and he will see you through it all.  I hope this post is encouraging for those of you that are struggling with finances and marriage issues.  I am just like anyone else trying to make it in this world with all the ups and downs, I just lean completely on God for all of my needs. God Bless!

Hello everyone!


Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
