Freelancers Must Stick Together

It’s not easy being a freelancer.  First, I work from home, which means I get little or no respect from anyone around me – especially in the older generations.  They just don’t get the idea that you can be employed and not have to leave the house. Second, I am underpaid (for the most part).  […]

Called To Be Peculiar

Being peculiar is becoming the “in thing”.  I run across more references to the word peculiar than almost any other descriptive word out there.  Everyone wants to be trendy and original.  Some people are falling short of the calling. There are those that worry being peculiar will become normal mostly because of all the attention […]

Make a Schedule Your Habit

The schedule around our house has been a little warped these last couple of months. Just when you think you have it under control, BAM! You are hit with a major mix up. Trying to keep a semblance of normalcy is difficult enough without adding the burden of expanding my responsibilities. But it has to […]

Celebrating Satan’s Holiday

“We won’t be meeting for bible study this Wednesday because we will be celebrating Satan’s holiday.” Our class leader was joking around, but his words have been haunting me (pun intended).

3 Steps to Savings Security

Everyone should have an emergency fund of three to six months worth of mandatory expenses set aside – just incase; just incase you lose your job, just incase you get sick, or just incase your husband calls you up out of the blue and says “I quit.” Building up that kind of fund will not […]

Health Savings Accounts Could Save You Money

Health Insurance has gotten ridiculous in price.  Thirty years ago, what you pay per month is probably about what you would pay per year.  For families (or even individuals) who are self-employed, the premiums can cost as much as the mortgage.  That’s just wrong.  Health Savings Accounts could be the answer to this injustice. In […]

Find Glee in Others Pain

It may be wrong to laugh at someone else’s misery, but some times it feels so good.  I’m not talking anything serious – just those annoying miseries that we often face.  It’s satisfying to see someone deal with something they refused to help or support you through.  When it comes back to bite them, it’s […]

The Key to It All

Today I found the key.  The real irony is that I’ve had it for most of my life.  This morning, during my quiet time (I’m doing two COMPLETELY different studies) I read that the key is a personal relationship with God.  Well, duh! Every successful person through out the bible, from Cain to Moses to […]

It is All About Money

In this day and age it seems that everything is money, money, money.  The only thing people ask about your new job is if you are making more money.  The only thing that anyone seems focused on with your new house is how much you paid for it.  If you’ve completely relocated, most people want […]
