I am a 31 year old working mom. I have two children ages 6 & 8. I am newly remarried (two years and counting) and enjoy spending time with the hubs! Even though life is busy I try to take a little time to show what is going on in my world. This blog is mainly for daily happenings, finances and such. I have created a whole new blog at Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker to chronicle my creative sides. You will find recipes, cooking adventures, crafts and a whole lot of digital scrapbook layouts.

Managing Finances

Stevens Creek is doing a new small group series on "Managing your finances" It looks to be a great series to not only learn better ways to manange your money, but to do it also from a spiritual aspect. It helps you to realize that not just 10% is the lords, but all of it is. We have to start thinking about being responsible to the lord for all of our money and use it for purposes that further our spiritual selfs.
I am glad to know that we don't have too much debt. Both our cars are paid off, we have a little on credit cards, and I always forget about Steve's student loan from Utah. I hope within two months to have the credit cards paid off and then start working on that student loan. Hopefully except for the house we can be debt free within a short while.
We are also trying a new thing where we are going to do all our shopping for the entire month of Feb. We will have walmart cards for gas and cards with $10 a week for Milk and fresh produce. Otherwise we are not shopping (we hope). I have found it is too easy to go into walmart for miilk, bread and eggs, and come out with $60 worth of groceries.
Pray for us that we can stand strong in our commitments.
