Wonderful personal thoughts, not just words, from a Godly young woman…

When I was 16, I got a purity ring.
And when I was 25, I took it off.
I didn’t tell anyone I was doing it — it wasn’t a statement or an emotional thing. I just slipped it off my finger that day and, before tucking it away in a box, ran my finger around the words on the familiar gold band.
This subject touches many of us…

The New York Fed recently reported that outstanding student debt rose 1.1 percent from $904 billion three months earlier. The loans were taken out by students and their parents, and the majority are backed by the U.S. government.
Ninety-day delinquency rates for student loans increased to 8.9 percent from 8.69 percent in the first quarter, the New York Fed said. Since the peak in household debt in the third quarter of 2008, student-loan debt has increased by $303 billion, while other forms of debt fell a combined $1.6 trillion.
Where to turn to for assistance with student loan debt?
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Hummus!

Hummus simply means “chickpeas” in Arabic. What I have created is an easy creamy garlic hummus recipe that anyone can make in minutes in a food processor for around $1.50. While shopping the other day we noticed the cost of this frugal dip coming in at a whopping $4.50 for a 500 g tub.
It is about serving others…
