Not as Bad, But Still Not Smart

 

 

Q.  How do you feel about check cashing companies?

Published in Dave Ramsey Says

As a young mom, I thought Mother’s Day should be all about me.  Surely I deserved recognition for my never-ending sacrifices as a mom and stepmom to five children, right?  However, after driving away from my parents’ home recently with tears spilling down my cheeks, I sensed God asking me to honor my mom with the time we have left. Unable to deny that Alzheimer’s is consuming Mom’s every fiber, Mother’s Day carries an overwhelming sadness, as she no longer knows me as her daughter.

The Challenge of Parenting

I fondly remember learning how to drive. My mother was dead-set on driving lessons so that I would be prepared to operate a 2000 pound piece of machinery on a road packed with not only pedestrians, but cute fluffy animals.  I studied day and night to earn my permit, drove with instructor Ms. Burton for 6 months and passed my road-test on the first go ‘round. It was official; I was a licensed vehicle operator with all the privileges therein vested in my 16 year-old abilities.

Teaching your kids can feel daunting. But teaching your kids about God can feel downright terrifying.

 

Some feel overwhelmed with time issues. They just don’t see how they can fit something else into their day. Others may not feel as if they have adequate theological training. They feel uncomfortable instructing their kids beyond, “Jesus loves you.”

Swatting at the Bee

For some, it might be required reading; for others, it may be an acquired taste. The Babylon Bee is a Christian satire site that will frequently give you something to think about, maybe chuckle at, or even laugh out loud!

Be a Super Mom!

Wouldn’t it be fabulous if our children were born with instructions attached to them as to how to raise them? Heaven delivers these cute little bundles to us who, from the day they arrive, take over our lives. We love them, but it takes a bit more than just love to raise them properly. We need knowledge.

Safeguarding Your Identity

Someone has estimated that 15.4 million Americans were the victims of identity theft and fraud in 2016. Put at risk were financial accounts, credit health, job prospects, personal reputations, and even medical records. Using someone else’s personal information can allow thieves to take out loans, file tax returns, and pick up prescription drugs.

RRJ:  Molly, as Executive Director at The Wellness Coalition, what does your job entail?

 

Molly:  The Wellness Coalition is a nonprofit organization that works to get people the healthcare they need. We help uninsured adults connect with a doctor, apply for medication assistance, and learn how to manage chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. We also offer wellness classes on diabetes prevention and chronic disease management. Healthcare access and literacy is a major need in our community, and uninsured adults will frequently use the emergency room for regular care instead of seeing a doctor. That is not good for the hospitals or the patients. We try to break that cycle by providing resources and education to improve our clients’ health and quality of life.
