My Bigest Reason To Be Debt Free

There are quite a few reasons for us to work at being debt free, but sitting right next to me is one of the biggest reasons for me.

It's my baby daughter.

She is a morning person like myself, so we get together at 5 or 6 AM, have breakfast, read some news, talk to each other, sing songs (she does most of the singing). I cherish our mornings together because my evenings when extra work comes around, I don't get home until she is already asleep. When she smiles because she sees me after being away for a while, all the work to take care of her is worth it.
  • I want to be able to spend even more time with her with no worries about creditors calling us daily
  • I want to make sure her needs are met (and a couple of wants)...
  • I want to be a good example to her of a wise steward.
  • We are heavily considering home-schooling her, which will require some of my time.
I have noticed that ever since I knew we were going to have a baby, it was put upon my heart to fix the bad situation we are in. If I believed in coincidences, I would say it was. I know it is God working on refining me to be the man of God he wants me to be.

It's amazing how God can place things on your heart and show you the way.
