This Story Upsets me to my Core – Blogger & Eldest Child Killed by Estranged Husband #support #endviolence

As with any law or rule in this world, Justice isn’t always served as fully as it should. The one area that falls into this “gets addressed when too late” is domestic violence.

It’s a simple craft project that is also teaching a valuable life lesson; to give thanks for […]

Rent Your College Textbooks and Support Operation Smile

I recently started reading on various blogs about the website Campus Book Rentals and I must admit this is a really cool concept. Instead of paying ridiculously high prices for those books you need while working on a college degree, you can pay low prices and rent your textbooks.   One of the cool factors behind Campus Book Rentals is that they have a partnership with Operation Smile. How Renting Textbooks Works Simply choose the book you wish to rent, one I may have looked into while I was in my business management courses would have been Accounting Made Simple. […]

When I Win The PowerBall

Let me start off by saying that I do not believe in using the word “if”, for the most part, it’s usually “when” for I have found anything that I put my mind to usually happens, yes even winning money! When I win the PowerBall … No one but my closest friends and family will know. I will pay it forward to those who gave to the kids and me without expecting  anything in return. Charity work will begin in the form of helping children and the homeless. My children will gain a savings or trust fund set aside for […]
