You Find Out Who Your Friends Are

20131030-173639.jpg

It’s been said that you know who your real friends are by how they react to dramatic changes in your life. Well, this week has been a great example of that!

I’m in between jobs right now (all is well and we were prepared for this thanks to FPU) and the amount of support that has poured in has been wonderful! Former coworkers who are still friends have reached out to say they miss me. People from the group formerly know as the START Experiment have helped me with resume crafting, cover letter drafting and LinkedIn rebuilding.

My friends have also sent me numerous job openings and ideas to help me pursue my dreams. They even encouraged me to apply for a scholarship o attend Bob Goff‘s Love Does Conference in Austin, Texas.

Well, guess what. I won!! My friends already attending offered to pick me up on their way down from Oklahoma and we are staying with more friends right outside of Austin.

We’re actually en route right now and can’t wait to be united with the rest of the group!

It’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! Thanks again for all the support (you know who you are!) and encouragement to continue pursuing my dreams! :) I couldn’t do it without you. <3

Now, that being said, I want to pay the blessings forward. How can I help YOU? How can I support your dreams?

Let me know on the comments below!

Have you ever been forced to wonder “what’s next?”

I mean, sure we all think about it from time to time, but there are certain points in our lives when we’ve intentionally had to wonder what God has planned for our next chapter.
But, sometimes that innocent wonder turns into nagging fear… Continue reading

Sell, Sell, Sell!

The first time I became debt free, it was quite a feat. I paid off $20,000 about three months before I married into a car loan. Most of the process was tough and, for the most part, not fun. But honestly, I don’t remember much about the hardships.

What I do remember the most is the night before the first garage sale… Continue reading
