Growing Up in a One Room Cabin

It’s Crazy Money Day!

Dolly Parton grew up in a 1-room cabin in the woods. She says being poor was good for her. When poor, you learn skills you can’t pay for like sewing, cooking, cleaning, home, and auto repairs. You have to manage time in order to hold down several jobs. You make do with what you have or share and trade with others. Instead of buying entertainment you host your own concerts, write your own plays, and dream up competitions. Creativity blossoms when the economy demands. Many of humble means develop the character and work ethic that propels them into leadership later in life. If you have less than others, remember Jesus was born in a stable.
