I Don’t Know When It Started

Have you had an experience like this? For several months Nathan and I have been in situations where we have heard the same message over and over again.

It’s about our stuff. It’s about possessions and money and how we use them. So, I’m going to share our story and what this theme is that keeps following us everywhere we go!

I have a love-hate relationship with blog posts like this. Sometimes I read them and get inspired. Other times I just feel judged and defensive.

So, here is my disclaimer:

I’m going to write about how God is working in our hearts in this area and what He’s saying to us. I don’t know what He’s saying to you. It’s not a suggestion to follow what we’re doing. It’s just our story.

Long story short:

Two years ago, we were spending our money on frivolous things, we saved very little and our giving became inconsistent. We hit a wall and decided we needed to make some changes. So, for the last couple of years, we’ve been listening to what God has been saying to us about our money and He is saying: “Live simply. Give Lavishly”

I guess I just spoiled the ending 🙂

For the month of November, we’re (maybe Nathan will chime in too) going to spend time telling the story of   how God is moving in this area of our lives. More to come. . .

  1. I look forward to hearing more! We’ve been forced on this journey of frugality – but it is so satisfying! We still have tons of work to do as far as being intentional goes, but we are debt free (besides one car, but no mortgage) and after a long period of unemployment and recovery, we are finally making it month to month! Go us! 🙂
