Faithful Fridays



This week for Joy's Faithful Fridays, I'm just thankful that Joy is better. Although she is still sleeping alot and tired, she is so much better. We are past the fever. Her cough is better and she's slowly returning to her more peppy self. God is so faithful to hear these prayers and see her through this sickness. You know how it is seeing your kids sick, we'd rather it just be us, as parents, as to see our kids so helplessly sick.

On another praise note, the Lord led us to Dave Ramsey's financial methods (Financial Peace University) awhile back, and although it's hard to kind of get motivated to do it and stick to it, it is amazing how a family can change their financial outlook, even if it's in baby steps. I'm thankful for that this week. If you're not familiar with Dave Ramsey, you should check it out. You'll be glad you did (well maybe not at first because it's challenging, but it's rewarding and well worth it)!

Faithful Fridays were created by Joy to share her faith in God. She invites anyone that would like to participate to do so and hopes to hear how God has been faithful to you and your family, or to share answered prayers or even prayer requests.

Enjoy your Friday evening! :)

Tammy,

I'm so glad Joy is feeling better!

We have been listening to Dave's radio show for years. We don't always follow everything just like he advises, but for the most part we do. We are debt free except for our house and it feels wonderful!

Tammy so glad Joy is doing better. I went back to Dr today, he gave me a shot and meds Monday, he put me on breathing treatments today along with another shot. It seems I have pneumonia. I usually get it once a year. Sad part is I had to cancel my Church Retreat Trip for Sunday. I will miss the fellowship and praise but God has a reason for everything.
I enjoy listening to Dave. I am totally debt free, except for the normal, phone, directtv and computer hook up. lights, things you can pay cash for each month.

I am so glad Joy is feeling better. I didn't get to post today. I was just too busy and I am so exhausted. So much to do in such a short time. :)

I'm so glad Joy is feeling better! I love listening to Dave and he's one of the reasons I've been so determined to live without a mortgage. Not there YET, but getting there! My son is feeling much better also!! Enjoy your weekend!

I am so glad that Joy is healing.

Keep one's finances under control is very important and if you are married it should be something that it talked over together.

Frank and I are debt free right now. Just our monthly bills. We want to get a new small truck or suv (something easier to get in and out of than our car), but we want to wait a bit and see what happens with the auto makers. Meanwhile enough money will be saved for a nice down payment... and maybe another trip :-)

I'm so glad to hear that Joy is on the mend, Tammy! That certainly is an answered prayer...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friend...

Tammy - glad Joy is feeling much better!! Yes, I know, we'd always rather is would be us - so sad to see our kiddos sick. I haven't done the Dave Ramsey study but we have just begun the Crown financial study - yes, does it ever make you think about things. Really puts money into perspective. We've never lived outside our means but as with anybody, we could always do better. So we are gonna try. Thanks for the encouragement. Blessings, Cathy

So glad that Joy is feeling better!! And I love Dave Ramsey! Him and David Bach are excellent financial gurus in my opinion!
