I sat here tonight planning out my week and felt totally overwhelmed! Then a word came to mind: balance. “Balance is a state of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weight, amount, etc. or the mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc.” Dictonary.com I have been a full time “work outside the home mom” and I have been a full time “stay at home mom” but now I am a full time “work at home mom“. I have to say having been in all 3 positions this...

Do you remember a few weeks ago when I shared my health report with you? It was life changing! I have started changing the way I eat and I am seeing real results! I could not find a perfect diet or meal plan that worked for me so I put some of the ideas together and created my own. Y’all I have lost 14 pounds in 2 months! Some may say that is dangerous or say that it will all come back. That is ok. I know it is not dangerous. The way I was living before WAS dangerous! I am really not doing anything crazy. I am actually feeding my body...

Last night we had a bad storm. It was the kind with the howling winds, lightning that lights up the room, thunder that shakes the walls and knocks out power. Both me and my husband had stayed up late working and were just going to bed when it got bad. When the power went out my first thought was my kids. They like to sleep with lots of lights on so I knew I needed to do something so they would not be scared if they woke up. I turned on all the battery operated lights and set them up in and around their rooms. I went back to bed and heard...

Last night was special and so we went out with the whole family to eat. This does not happen very often especially on weeknights. But it was awesome and we had a blessed evening. But when we got home there was so much more excitement in store for us. Bed time had been pushed way back since we went out and the kids were more hyper than usual because of all the fun. As a result bedtime was a challenge. But once we felt like they were down for the night I decided to put off work till morning and go relax before bed. My husband stayed up...

The other day I was chatting with my mother in law about this year. We were discussing God’s provision and timing this year. This year has been full of ups and downs. I said it had been a year of “faith testers.” She said “or doubt busters.” I love that! Yes it was BOTH! Here is a short recap: We updated the kitchen to get ready to sell it.We moved with the plan of reaching financial freedom.The people backed out and did us wrong.We moved back into our home to find vandalismWe spent the next 3 months...

Recently I have had many friends ask how to do what I do and work from home. I decided I would write a personal post to give you all a little insight into my journey to “follow my heart.” You can work from home. It is not easy but you can do it! I started this blog in January 2010 as a way to help me save money, share my money saving tips, search for and share deals and get my life financially in a better place. At this time I was working full time outside the home. I started with NO idea how to blog or what to do! I started...
