Financial wisdom from a woman of faith

Our First Budget

The idea of a budget is like fingernails on a chalkboard to some and to others it is as intimidating as a loaded gun.  For me it is peace.  It is an instrument that creates perfect harmony.  It is a tool that facilitates great communication.  The first budget Josh and I developed together was the budget for our wedding.  The communication it facilitated set the priorities for our wedding – photography, flowers and cake.  Everything else was a little rock and managed within the margins set.  Our budget was a guide, not a straight jacket. We made adjustments, but we fulfilled our ultimate goal – DEBT FREE wedding ceremony.  At financial decision points it was our greatest tool to keep our sanity and not overdo it.  After all, what matter most to us was our marriage which was only beginning at that ceremony!


My voice

My voice is unique.

Woman of faith





Life – experience

This blog is a place for that voice – my unique voice –  to have expression!

Why I blog

The idea of helping someone get free financially is invigorating to me!! Like oxygen in my lungs, it is the essence of who I am.

I blog so that I can help more people take a new look at their finances and begin to make powerful choices that free them financially.  Freedom from debt.  Freedom to manage possessions according to God’s word.  Freedom from the generational perspectives of money that were raised in.  Freedom to imagine the possibilities God has.

Ultimately my desire is to see people get free financially so that they can say YES! to whatever God has for them.  Adoption, starting a business, funding missions, helping someone in need, retiring young…WHATEVER!!!
