Lights of the World

  Jesus told us to be the light of the world…..but did you ever consider that the kind of light bulbs you buy may help you fulfill this mission?! Well, when Jesus said, “You are the light of the world” in His Sermon on the Mount He obviously meant that we as Christians should be spiritual […]

How Much Labor Does an Item Cost?

Ever thought about how many hours you have to work in order spend money? This is one of my favorite ways to control my spending. It’s also a great lesson for your kids to learn! Think about how much you earn an hour, and – if you are salaried – just calculate your average hourly rate. Now, […]

Stewarding Your Time

  Stewarding your time is just as important as stewarding your money. And they usually go hand-in-hand! Time is a gift of God! He entrusts 24 hours every day to each of us and gives us the freedom to decide how we are going to use them.  What we do with our time influences our […]

Trusting God

Trusting God

A friend of mine has a young son who challenged a decision his Father made. My friend stopped and asked him, “son, how old are you? And how old am I? Do you think that, since I’m a LOT older, maybe I have more wisdom than you? I need you to trust that I know […]

Embrace Limitations

  Do you try to “do it all”? Finding a balance in life is challenging…. My friend, Dr. Anne Bradley, is a busy mom and a VP at the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics. She feels the pressures of living and raising children in a fallen world and the confusion about calling and identity. […]
