Etched Upon My Heart GIVEAWAY!!!


“He knew I would fall for the things of this world. He knew I would be tempted to try and live apart from Him. So, out of love, He let me go. He let me dance around in the shifting shadows of this lifeless merry-go-round world. He let me go until I eventually discovered that the person I was created to be could only be found in Him. Until then, I would travel the road more traveled, I would be a follower of all that glitters but is not gold.”

-Jill Kelly

The 5 Money Personalities GIVEAWAY!!!

Let me share with you one of my many quirks….
I love reading financial planning books! Always have since my early 20’s! You name them, I’ve read them. I have done every budget worksheet, class, and financial guide out there. I love paying bills each month and watching my debit get smaller and smaller!
I recently read a “money” book that completely stands out from the others. The 5 Money Personalities by Scott and Bethany Palmer helps couples get to the bottom of their money arguments and gives you a way to start working together.
My husband and I read through this book together and for the first time had money conversations that didn’t end up in a heated argument! I must admit I went through the money personalities and labeled my husband right away! However, I was totally wrong!! The more we talked the more I realized that my husband was not the risk taker I had tagged him to be but more of a flyer! Through our sharing we both began to realize a lot of good and not so good things about ourselves. I never realized how some of my money behaviors affected him vice versa.  Now that we know each other’s personalities we can not only better understand each other but we have learned a new respect for each other. We are now more aware of how personalities affect each other and are on our way to building a strong and healthy money relationship.
I will leave you with this quote from the book:
“Every marriage begins with a million dreams. And now you can get those dreams back. With every decision you make together, you will be one dream closer to the life you imagined on your wedding day.”
