I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas.  I frequent many of your blogs and I see many of you had the privilege of having a "white Christmas."  We missed the snow this year....well, just maybe I did.  I really wanted to see some white...but it wasn't in the cards here in Louisiana.  We had rain and it was pretty balmy.

As we roll into the new year, I find myself as always trying to be know, a fresh start.  Most of us say this is the year we are taking over our health and we will exercise more; this is the year I will read my bible more and so on. 

All this to say that my hubby gave me a wonderful gift this year.  He gave me hope.  I received this book from him.

I am here to tell you that I don't want to be a slave to debt.  I want to be able to send my children to college debt free!  No student loans!  I want to be able to have a savings account for those times when the water heater goes up or the car needs major repairs.  I want to be able to have money saved up for retirement.  I want to be able to have my house paid off.  I want to be able to give and bless others....just because; and in that spirit I will be giving away a copy of this book to celebrate my three year blogiversary.  

I can't believe that I have been blogging for three years.  When I started this blog I think I was writing to myself and slowly, I have had some followers who actually read my little ole blog.  To all you who read, I thank you.  It's nice to read comments, they make me smile.

I am passing on the blessing of hope.  If you would like to have the opportunity to win a copy of this book, leave me a comment telling me one thing you would like to be able to do if money were no object.

Dave's tag line in the book is
"Live like noone else so you can live noone else."

Well, this is the year that we start living like noone else so we can live like noone else.  It won't be easy, but it will be so worth it in the end.

Have a blessed day!

Hi Cheryl, thanks for the giveaway!
If money were no object, we'd give more and travel more. We're at that "better do it before we have kids" stage in life (travel-wise), and giving to our church and those less fortunate has always been important to us.
Best of luck with your financial freedom in the coming year! Thanks for stopping by the other day. :)


P.S. I'm not sure WHAT I used for the binding on my wool blanket. It was black and cheap and really soft, so that worked for me!
