We are a one-income family, and yes, our financial situation is stretched to the limit at times, but we are usually able to survive from paycheck to paycheck and have what we need. It was not always so. Let me tell you a little story. About 15 years ago, I found out that I was pregnant with my youngest son. At the time, I had a good paying job as a legal assistant working with a well-respected law firm. I managed to work through most of my pregnancy until my last trimester when complications towards the end of my pregnancy caused me to be put … [Read more...] about Fight Hunger. Spark Change.
Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Samsung as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. As many of you already know, my trusty HP All-In-One desktop went to computer heaven earlier this week. It had been having problems since September of last year and just got progressively worse until it said earlier this week, “That’s it. I’m done. You’ve worked me to death.” So I needed a new computer and I needed a new one QUICK. Tre’s phone also “mysteriously” got broken so he was … [Read more...] about Stretch Your Tax Refund with #SamsungAtWalmart Deals on TVs, Home Audio, Mobile Devices, Tablets and More
My boys have always been active and their dad and I are constantly looking for ways to support them and nurture whatever activities they are interested in. Unfortunately, having a son with ADHD means that we need to look deeper into what our son likes, what interests him the most, and channel his energy. We've learned that what works for most athletes is not usually the case with an ADHD athlete. We are all “just a kid” from somewhere. I’m from Pottsville, PA. My boys are from Richmond, VA. Regardless of where we were born and raised, we all … [Read more...] about 5 Things You Need to Know to Support Your ADHD Athlete
This is a sponsored post in connection with SheSpeaks and P&G. All opinions are 100% my own. I have never been a huge football fan when it comes to watching a big game on television. I would prefer being at the game myself, seeing the action, watching the people - now that's where the fun is! However, being at home with family and friends watching the big game is loads of fun too (and the one time I don't complain about the big screen television in our apartment living room) and we don't have to worry about being too cold or too hot or … [Read more...] about Our #GameDayTraditions with Walmart and Proctor & Gamble
I cannot even begin to try and count the amount of times that I have lost my faith. It happens to all of us at one point or another. We begin to wonder how there possibly could be a Higher Power when there is so much wrong with the world around us. When things are going horribly wrong and nothing seems to be working in your favor, it's easy to blame God, to turn your back on Him. In my experiences; however, those have been the very instances when I have seen His love and grace in abundance when I allowed myself to stop trying to "fix" … [Read more...] about Losing Your Faith and Discovering the Grace of God Review and Giveaway
I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Virgin Mobile. I received a sample device to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating. My eldest son, Jonathan, is about to turn 15 years old in a little over a week. He's been absolutely HOUNDING me for a phone for what seems like forever though. 78% of all teenagers now have some type of mobile phone or smart phone, and 47% of them say that their phone is their life - they cannot live without it. That would be my son as … [Read more...] about Kids, Teens and the Virgin Mobile Custom Plan at Walmart
