Want to feel rich today?

Our concept of being rich is really messed up. Most of us in America, have a "keep up with the Jones'" mentality - although I do think that is early 2000's - and it keeps some of us from truly living in our means.

If you want to feel rich today . . . Check out this site.

I know it's all relative but we all can live with so much less.

The best financial advice I've received: "When your outgo exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall!"

What is the best advice you've received financially?

Not so much advice, but a beautiful example. B-Rich told me a story about how after interviewed in Tracy, they called him to extend an offer, complete with a "compensation package". He told them he didn't want to know how much they wanted to pay him, because he didn't want it to cloud his judgment in decided whether to accept. He just told me that he and Star decided a long time ago that God would be their provider, not the ministry or a job or anything else. That blows me away. Maybe someday I can trust God like that . . .

B-Rich . . . that guy is such an inspiration. Doesn't surprise me. I hear you on the trust thing! "Oh, for grace to trust Him more!"
