Donations & Other Helps
PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!

As of February 2, my husband joined the ranks of the unemployed. He searched diligently for work, and we trusted God to provide all our needs, which He graciously did. Sometime in March, my husband started working as a teacher’s aide in a special needs classroom at the high school. This is approximately a 70% paycut. He is also going back to school to get certification to teach full time. We still trust God but some of our readers have asked if they can participate in God’s providence.

You can help us the most by:

Praying for us:
That we are wise with the resources we have; that my husband gets good counsel on the best way to achieve his certification quickly; that we are able to find good ‘bargains’; that he does well in school; that there is a good job for him when he finishes.
Prayer is not the ‘least’ you can do. It’s the most.

In addition to prayer, there are other ways you can help us without spending any money, and that’s important to us. We know we are not the only family with economic short falls right now-

You can send us blog traffic to help increase our blog income. This is a HUGE help. Share links to our posts with your friends via emails, facebook messages or twitter. This is a fabulous, wonderful help. It’s a gift that keeps on giving. When you share posts that you find helpful, we get new readers, and more traffic. When we get more traffic, we get a few more pennies from our advertisements. and maybe they will find the post you shared helpful enough to pass it on and share it with others as well. And, of course, we did strive to write useful, helpful, content that will encourage, educate, or inform our readers and be a blessing to them rather than a waste of their time.
