What an eventful year to say the least. I know it's been quite some time since you've received a blog post. All I can say is there hasn't been much time to sit down and type. God teaches us all throughout the Bible that in order to produce and be fruitful you must keep moving. We are called to be in motion, it's where we learn, grow, and experience life at it's best.
This year alone, we were able to guide our church into being completely debt free. This has been weighing heavy on my heart for several years and I could not be happier about the decisions that have been made as a church family. I am quite certain that God is pleased by our progress as well. All of this was made possible,not because of some miracle, but by understanding that God does not intend for us to be held down by loans. But instead, to be free to grow, serve, and explore new ways of bringing others to Christ. All of which is easier without the debt.
In addition to helping in our church, we have been b...

Every purchase we make should leave us full of joy. If buying something later ends in sorrow you have to ask yourself, "Was this a good purchase?" That answer is probably no. But why are we left feeling sorrowful? Was the item too expensive? Was it not needed? Did you impulse buy? Or were you trying to compete with a purchase made by a friend?
Regardless of the answer to these questions, you have to stop and ask yourself, did making this purchase hinder me from making the bills this month?
