March Giveaway: From Debtor to Better & A Missions Giveaway!

So, in the spirit of St. Patrick, a Welsh slave who escaped captivity in Ireland only to return to the land of his captivity and preach the Gospel, this month’s giveaway will be what we’re calling a “Miss-Away” – a donation to your favorite mission. It can be your local church, a missionary group, a youth camp, an orphanage, your town’s soup kitchen — you choose and we will donate $100.00 and then showcase your favorite mission on Friday, March 23rd.

Because, the less you owe, the more you have, and the more you have, the more you can give back to God; because we live in a society so permeated by debt, so much of what we make has to go to get out of debt; in addition to this missions giveaway, the winner will also receive a copy of From Debtor to Better by Barry Myers. Barry and his wife, Stacy, of Stacy Makes Cents, in just 8 months were able to pay off $20,000 worth of debt on just $50,000 annual income!

Dear Children

It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the current season. Maybe you’ve forgotten that I wasn’t actually born during this time of the year and that it was some of your predecessors who decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a time of pagan festival. Although I do appreciate being remembered anytime.

Hallee on the Issues: Government Spending & the Federal Debt/Deficit

I have a fiscally conservative perspective when it comes to things like government spending. Our government spends WAY too much money. If you want to see some of the mind-boggling appropriations, a good source is Citizens Against Government Waste. They break down how much money went to what, and which Representative is responsible for the bill to enact the spending. Spend some time there and you’ll see what is called “pork” – excessive government use of taxpayer dollars.

Serve One Another in Love

So, at the end of the day I was obnoxious all day long with the camera but will start all over again on a “normal” day instead of a crazy day.

But then I realized what I did have – an inside look at the soup kitchen. I thought, what a gem.

Just Do It

I saw Cathy of Cathy’s Creations post a link on Facebook a few days ago with a story about the staggering number of orphans post earthquake/tsunami in Japan. She said, “I wish there was something I/we could do for these children.” It got me thinking.
