Wow! Where to begin.. So much has happened since the last time I was able to blog but just to bring you up to speed on a couple of the reasons why we were unable to visit with family this past weekend and let ya know what's going on with us. Chris' house was being leased by one of his "friends". The lease was up and they wanted to buy, the last we heard three weeks ago they were approved for the loan and signing the papers which we thought was wonderful, well we were wrong... A little over a week ago we found out that not only were they NOT buying the house but they had moved out a week before and totally destroyed the place. Neither of us even had time to work last week because we were trying to clean the place up and get it on the market. It's starting to take shape after many hours of work and will hopefully be ready for the Open House on sunday. In between all that time we have also had football games, church, missions meetings, missions fundraisers, etc... so our lives have been very stressful the last couple of weeks. We are praying that the house sells soon and that problem is out of our hair for good. It wouldn't hurt our feelings any if we made a little money too... :+)

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Wow what a powerful verse and how it hits so close to home. When are we going to stand up as God's children and realize that we are aren't just conquerors we are MORE than conquerors.
What is a conqueror? Webster's defines conqueror as the following.. overcome by force of arms to gain mastery over or win by overcoming obstacles or opposition <conquered the mountain> 4 : to overcome by mental or moral power : intransitive verb : to be victorious
So that means that according to Romans we have the power to overcome anything the devil brings our way whether it be mental, physical, financial, etc... his word says that not only can we conquer those things but that we can even be more than that.. I don't know about you but that excites me. When satan tries to tell us we are no good, that we are never going to get that healing we have been praying for, that our finances will never get better, that whatever situation we are facing is hopeless we can combat his lies with these promises from our Heavenly Father. He has already given us all the tools we need. We just have to realize who we are in Christ and the authority we have through his blood and defeat every negative thought and circumstance that comes our way.
"The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." [2 Corinthians 10:4-5]

Chris and I are a part of a work at home company that has saved us quite a bit of money and we are also well on our way making some great money as well...
So far I have cut my house insurance in half, reduced my house payment, almost cut our car insurance in half, saved over a thousand dollars on furniture, received cash back on several purchases for everyday expenses just to name a few of the perks... If you are a small business owner there are defintely even more benefits.
I am definitely NOT a salesperson and this is the perfect job for me because there is no selling required... there are no products for people to purchase on a monthly basis or points to earn etc... It's not a "get-rich quick" scheme that so many people try to push on people.
It is simply a way for people to make money and save money and that is something I feel good about sharing. Especially if it can help people out in today's economy.
