In light of all that is going on in the world, I decided to change directions with my question of the week. My heart and soul are craving uplifing words and I am sure I am not alone.
So, my question for all of you amazingly awesome people out there is, “What is one of your favorite quotes, sayings, verses, poems, or mantras that lifts your heart and mind when you are feeling overwhelmed?”
~ Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, please take care of yourself, and each other.

Being chronically ill, I tend to worry about money a lot. I try hard to win over the anxiety by reminding myself that God will work it all out and worrying about it does absolutely no good. To also help combat my fear of not having enough money, I live a frugal lifestyle. I make sure my family lives on less and with less in most areas of our lives.
But instead of focusing on what we live without, we can always talk about that later, today’s question focuses on what we do spend money on. There are psychological benefits to spending money on yourself, even if it is just a little bit, for a pick-me-up.
So, the question this week is: What is one thing you regularly spend money on that brings joy into your life?
OK, so I am not officially back blogging yet, but I did want to take a moment to announce that for the month of January and, stretching through February 3rd, I have lowered the price of my book, Frugal Seeds 501 Ways to Make, Save or Stretch a Dollar, in both print and ebook form.
This book shares many of the ways that my family of 6 used to pay off all of our medical and consumer debt and ways we continue to use as we work to pay off our mortgage.
The book can be viewed here and, as always can be read for FREE with KindleUnlimited.
I look forward to seeing everyone again in February!
A warm hello to you today, thank you for stopping by for a visit.
In this post I am asking a question for more personal reasons. Due to my multiple chronic illnesses, I unfortunately spend a lot of time watching movies. Even if I am not actually watching movies, I have them playing in the background as I go about my day as I use them as a distraction.
So my question is, What is your favorite holiday movie?
Thank you for responding, I am hoping to discover one movie that I have not yet seen!
Thanks again for stopping by. Please know that each one of you are in my thoughts and I have prayed that today is treating you well and bringing you smiles.

It is that beautiful time of year again when we celebrate Advent, the time we prepare our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus.
Raising a family of 6 on a budget, I understand the stress that Christmas can create, a time when we feel the need to overdo everything, gifts, parties, meals, decorations…….but all of this costs money and can distract from the real reason of the season.
I have written a book that lists many of the ways my family has celebrated the hoidays while living on a tight budget – Frugal Seeds 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holiday Season on a Budget. It can be read FREE with KindleUnlimited and is available on Amazon in e-book and paperback.
I would be humbled if you would take a moment to check it out, thank you.
~ Wishing all of you a very blessed Advent Season.
The Holidays, even if you budget for them, have a way of putting a strain on your wallet. While my kids were younger, I worked very hard to make sure they didn’t notice our limited budget by keeping Christmas a fun and active time while remaining focused on the true meaning of this holy season.
In my latest book, Frugal Seeds Christmas Edition: 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holidays on a Budget, I share many of the ways we celebrated the Christmas season while keeping our focus on the reason for the season.
I would be greatly humbled if you would take a moment to check it out. It is now available on Amazon in paperback and e-book and can be read FREE on KindleUnlimited. Thank you.
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year.”
I am super excited to announce my newest book, Frugal Seeds: 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holidays on a Budget. This book is a true labor of love as it includes the many ways my family celebrated the holy season while living on a budget.
I would greatly appreciate you taking a moment to check it out here.
As many of you know I have written a book call Frugal Seeds Summer Edition: 101 Ways to Enjoy Summer with Your Kids for Little Money.
This is can be read FREE at Amazon with KindleUnlimited or you can purchase the e-book for 99 cents.
From my family to yours……….wishing you a summer filled with blessed memories.
