About Me

My name is Penny. I am a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, wife to a wonderful man and mom to four beautiful children.

In 2009, my husband and I agreed for me to quit my full time job as an administrative assitant to become a stay at home mom. While money has been tight, the Lord has kept His promise of providing us with everything that we need.

We have learned that we can live on less by simply choosing to. We have been open to many things in an effort to save money, such as making our own laundry soap and gardening (failed twice now). I coupon, although not on the extreme level, much to my husband's dismay. While we have learned alot about stretching a dollar, we still have a long way to go.

We have also become creative in making money, utilizing sites such as Ebay and Craigslist. Nothing is safe from the possibility of being sold...except maybe our children. There are other avenues that I have explored and has brought in extra income that I will eventually share too.

My prayer for Saving With Purpose is that not only will it allow me to be more accountable where each of dollars are spent, but it will also be a source of encouragement to all who take the time to read. I will share with you our goals for our future....the purpose behind our saving.

As you can see I have changed up the name of the blog a little bit. While everything above holds true and I will write about saving, couponing, ebay, etc. I felt that the name Saving With Purpose limited me in what I "could" write about..yes, crazy, I know.

So why "Living on Purpose"? Great question! Over the past couple of years and even more so the past several months, I have been really pondering about life..deep, I know right. James 4:14 says "Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes." Because we do not know what tomorrow holds, I really do want to make every moment count and even more than that I want to "..do it all to the glory of God" (I Corinthians 10:31)
