First off, I want you to watch this music video. This song has CHANGED my life. I used to pray for myself and my family and our prosperity, but now, in my time of need, God has put it on my heart that when I care for others, they reach their hands out to me. Once you have watched it...THEN read the message below! :)
So this weekend I went to San Antonio for a conference. I wish I could tell you it was an awesome conference full of amazing bloggers and I got to learn all kinds of great crafty stuff...but that's not the case!
I went to an amazing seminar, don't get me wrong. And I learned some really great "projects", but I wasn't there because I really wanted to, I was there because I NEEDED to be! I went to go see Dave Ramsey. I have messed up BIG time when it comes to money. And to be candid....I am bringing in WAY less a month than what the bills add up to! I try as hard as I can to live on a very strict budget, we have taken out things that we don't need. I don't go shopping anymore, we cut our food budget...if you haven't noticed, there haven't been any craft projects on this blog in a while. I just simply can't afford it. BUT....it's not the death of the blog...OH NO! It is the start to something entirely new.
I have decided to go back and get another full time job, so I am hitting the pavement full on this week. I will be learning to balance this blog, a new job, plus my graphic design! It should be a whole new adventure! Hence the merge of Gourmet Momma with PDB.
And to tell you the truth, I am really excited! I am pumped about getting to go back to work. (well...I have a FEW hesitations, but not many!)
But the best part about it is, I am getting out of debt so I can give Lagan a brighter future. Because as it stands now, she doesn't have one. She wont be able to go to college, she wont be able to get a car when she is 16, etc. I want her to do those things and not pay for it, literally, for the rest of her life!
So here is where I am asking you all for your help. Please pray that God will direct me and use me in a way that will impact my life and the lives of those around me in a positive way. That I be put in a position that I really like so I have good work ethic and that I am able to get out of this HUGE cloud of debt I have hovering over me.
And also, please pray for everyone out there that is job seeking in this terrible economy.
However, I am not worried about the economy or a bad job market, or a slow hiring process. People that say it doesn't look good.....They don't know MY GOD!!! :)
I love you all and thank you SOOO much for your prayers!
