I’m a Christian, homeschooling mama trying to do my part to keep our expenses down, joy up and love all around.
I’ve been married to the man God hand picked for me, for 25 years. We have nine children, three grown, six growing and a grandson that God has blessed us with. We are growing in Him daily in many more ways than one. I thank God daily for the way he provides for us.
We live out in the country on five acres and love it. We haven’t developed it to its full potential, but there’s always tomorrow. We have enjoyed a modest garden and I’ve taken landscaping on as a hobby. One of the benefits we’ve reaped for years now, is the savings that we’ve received from burning wood to heat our house and water. God has provided free wood for nine years now, either delivered right to our house or found at a neighboring farm. It’s also a free weight training program. 🙂
I also make a hobby out of collecting learning materials, because no one should ever stop learning. I’ve set up a library on our property and inside my computer. There are so many awesome resources available for free.
I’ve recently entered the wonderful world of couponing. I’ve been a frugal shopper for years, but now I’ve seen how much more I can save and provide for our family in the exciting online community of money savers. I would love to share what I’ve learned and what I’m doing daily in and around Madison, Wisconsin as well as online.
I’m determined to continue to strive for JOY! Jesus first, Others second and mYself last! That’s a tall order, but praise be to God He gives us grace.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
