I recently agreed to write a weekly column for The Christian Home. Mrs. White at The Legacy of Home started the carnival a few months ago. When she asked for volunteers for dedicated columnists, I hesitated. Did I really need one more thing to add to my list of responsibilities? Honestly, I’m struggling to keep up. But as I think over my priorities, blogging is still high on my list. So a weekly column helps me to actually do what I want to do anyway.
I sent a list of 3 or 4 possible columns for The Christian Home that I felt qualified to write. Then Mrs. White informed me she had selected me to write the column on Finances. First, I felt privileged to have been selected. Then the doubts began to set in.
I’m going to be writing on finances?
But I’m not a financial expert!
I don’t create meals for my family on less that $1.
I don’t find designer fashions at thrift stores for pennies.
I don’t buy $300 worth of groceries for $0.75 after coupons.
What do I know about finances?
I know that dealing with money is an important part of Christian living and that the Bible speaks about money in many passages of scripture.
I’ve seen God work in our finances many times.
My family has lived on one relatively small income for 13 years.
My prayer is that this column will be an encouragement to other Christian mothers, and that God will use it to His glory. I’m excited to see where this project will take me.
Please share any specific financial topics you’d like to see here. I’m always open to suggestions!
Please read this week’s edition The Christian Home.
