We’re Debt Free!!

by | Sep 11, 2007 | Personal Goals | 1 comment

In the spring of 2006, while absolutely drowning in debt and in desperate need of getting our finances under control, I read The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey, which I HIGHLY recommend.

On behalf of our family, I am proud to say that as of today WE ARE DEBT FREE*! (*minus our house)

We are now working on Baby Step 3, which is saving up 3 to 6 months of take home pay for a fully funded emergency fund.

I’d like to thank God for his blessings on our family and for helping me control my shopping habits… mostly by staying away from one particular store! (Any guesses which one?!?)

 I’d also like to thank Dave and his staff for their ministry as well as my hard-working husband for taking on extra wildfires this summer to help make it happen!

If you’d like more information on Dave, and his AWESOME program, check out his website.

    You inspire me! We were debt free once, for all of about 15 minutes, lol. But we are hoping to get there again soon!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
