Jennifer has three kids, all still at home and in school. Her parents are getting older and need a little extra help every day. She feels overwhelmed a LOT of the time. Not to mention the financial strain it’s caused her and her husband.
We say people like Jennifer are part of the sandwich generation because they’re stuck between caring for their elderly parents and their children still at home.
The Bible is clear that we’re to care for our family members, and honor our father and mother. But many people in this stage are facing debt, stress, and emotional or physical issues as well.
My advice is to start planning for this time now. The first step you should take is to build a budget!!
