I've been doing lots of reading lately, something I enjoy immensely, and have learned a great deal from it. I just finished reading Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, and although he writes this plan for the person who is in the midst of debt, I learned so much about wise, biblical money management. He encourages people to "live like no one else so that later you can live like no one else." His principles are based on the idea that we need to live without the luxuries that we grew up with under our parents' homes and learn to live with less. In doing this, we can prepare for a more secure future for our children and ourselves one day. Really great! Highly recommend!

I just began reading what I already knew was going to be a highly convicting book, Kisses from Katie. I have been reading this girl's blog for several years, learning about her story of going from a upper-middle class suburban homecoming queen to a adopted mother in Uganda of 14 little girls. I've only just begun but am highly convicted of the unnecessary luxuries that I afford myself when there is so much more I could be doing with my resources. Stepping outside our comfort zones and loving like Christ loves is a command from The Lord, and I can already see how much adjusting needs to happen in my own life.

Make time for reading because we always have so much to learn!

May you be filled with an awareness of the abundant blessings you've been given this week!

Que Dios le bendiga!

  1. I've just started having time to actually start reading some things I want to read, and I'm so excited! Love DR, and I had already heard that Kisses from Katie was amazing, so this just further confirmed that it needs to be on my must-read-soon list! :)
