The lack of finances was one of my fears when I resigned from my regular day job, and decided to stay home. Blogging does not pay my worth full time. But it affords me the time to be with the children and raise them up the way we envisioned God to want us.

Still there is the lack of finances. And yet God, as faithful as He is, tells me not to worry for He provides. And God, as humorous as He is with me, led me to discover coupons.

Yeah, you’re smiling… But coupons are God’s provisions. Just last week, I cut my grocery bills by 40% by shopping with coupons and sales from the local supermarkets. I ran out of dishwasher detergent and went to BJs to buy Bounty papertowels with coupons, then got a big bottle of Cascade for free. I buy myself really good make-up for less than a $1. (Mind you, they’re not from the Dollar Stores). And on good days, they’re more than free. I earn $1-2 on each buy. Tonight, I’m off to Superfresh to get my free $10 worth of meat. Plus, the store is having a meat sale so that small amount of money will stretch us a few days worth of food. 

I could show you my grocery bills and tell you that since I discovered the skill of couponing, I have saved us a lot. I really know it is God’s hand at work. And it’s beautiful.

What does God show you to help you save?

Man, this group is bad!

The Philippine All Stars won the 2008 World Hip Hop Dance Competition, wowing judges MC Hammer and Shane Sparks, in Las Vegas this week. The group wore the iconic sun and stars of the Philippine flag during the competition, and you can hear them shouting “Filipino! Filipino!” 

But winning is not everything.

It’s giving glory to the One they dance for.

Yup, these are teenagers, seriously dancing hip hop, and totally serving their God through dance. Check out their pastor’s message –

He tells them to be pure and holy in the middle of being world champions. I like his analogy of King Arthur getting the sword out of the anvil. He says it’s not about getting the sword at all, but what you do with the sword after you wield it. Fearlessly, the pastor even corrects a young man about the stuff that comes out of his mouth “from the abundance of his heart.”

They’re making a documentary titled “His-Story” that chronicles the group as they “continue to inspire and uplift other artists around the globe and represent His Story to the fullest”.

Thanks to Irwin, we found this.


A very simple message, huh, but according to Irwin, that’s what he learned when he encountered God.

(Irwin is one of our young people… there is a lot to be said when a teenager encounters the Living God. His life is changed. Forever.)
