  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I've realized over the last few months (and probably before) on my debt recovery journey that a lot of my reckless spending over the years has been brought on by fear. You'd think that fear would motivate you to save, but the fear has been so overwhelming for me that it led me to try to escape...
  2. Health and beauty
    I had this thought form after hearing previews for an Alzheimer's story on NPR on my drive in today. Let's say that a couple shares a belief system whereby the eternal reward is dependent upon active faith at the time of death (I'm specifically thinking Christianity, but I don't want to leave...

    Giving tells the Universe that you believe you are provided for. For even as you empty your purse, you fear not. The act alone is a demonstration of faith that you will remain whole, that your coffers will be replenished, and that love is what matters most. And for whomsoever believes these...
  4. Frugal Living
    For the past week I have been tormented. I received some "new to me" couches for free, replacing my sagging, hamster cut couches (we had to open the back to get the hamster out...and then the springs permanently pushed 6 inches out of the hole). Guests would start to sit down...and then change...
  5. News you can use
    Don't lose faith in your 401(k) Even when markets are headed south, a 401(k) is a great vehicle for retirement savings.
  6. Simple Living Be sure to turn down your volume first as the music is rather loud. I hope you enjoy this poem about Faith and Hope.:heartsm:
  7. Religion
    In your faith, what is the central focus? If you could pick one thing, what would it be? Is it: Love Kindness Leaning on a Higher Power and submitting to it Finding your own strength and propelling with it Following doctrine Worshiping something other than a God...say the moon, etc. Just...
  8. Religion
    If you're really passionate about your beliefs, do you find yourself sharing them or keeping a tight lip. As for me, I kind of "feel out" the company I'm keeping first. I never force feed my beliefs, but if I am given an opportunity and the timing is right I may lightly mention a few statements...
  9. Support
    A little story... Last summer, I was taking a long weekend by myself up in Maine at Wells Beach. I was going through an emotional time dealing with my ex-husband and in a rebound relationship that just wasn't working for me (same guy I recently said goodbye too.) I had my journal with me and...
  10. Stay at home moms
    I have been staying home and trying to do all I can to keep our budget from going into the red. We have used our savings and the bills are barely paid each month esp. with medical bills from our daughter's surgery. I'm a little overwhelmed right now and could use some encouragement/prayers. I...

  12. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    After the two major hurricanes in 3 weeks and seeing Fema's reaction in New Orleans and the major problems evacuating Houston; do you believe that if there was a natural emergency or terrorist attack in you community, that you would get good information and help?
  13. Religion
    I write to ask if there is anyone else who might, like me, struggle to be "in the world, but not of it?" I think what I am trying to say is that sometimes, though my faith remains strong, I have a hard time trying to "walk the walk." Everyday anoyances, petty things, the trials of life, all...
  14. Religion I just ran across this site for the first time today. I'm enjoying reading the articles here.

    Forsaking All I Trust Him
  16. Religion
    SCARY LEAP OF FAITH "The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deuteronomy 33:27, NIV). Brennan Manning, in his book, The Ragamuffin Gospel, tells about a child caught on the second floor of his house when it was on fire. The family members were all running out...
  17. Preparedness and Survival
    Sitting here, I'm thinking about how nervous I was about a month ago when dh lost his job. We wondered how we'd make the van payment, how we'd put food on the table and where we'd go from here. Dh was totally stressed out about the whole situation and had become very stressed out at the...

    Hi all. I have been reading some articles online about modest dress and different views on clothing. Do any of you dress a certain way because of your faith/religion or beliefs?
  19. Leisure & Media Arts
    Is anyone planning on watching this tonight? I am kind of excited about it. I loved Faith Ford on Murphy Brown and I loved it when ABC did TGIF on Friday nights, and now they are doing it again. George Lopez is on right now and H & F follows at 9. I am going to watch and see how it is.
  20. Religion
    I'm curious to know what others do when their faith is shaken to the core. Do you get angry at God or do you turn to Him more. Do you give up praying or do you pray even more? Do you question your faith or does it get stronger? Do you ask why? Lets share what happens when our...
