The need to make money has haunted me all my adult life..it is a stronghold, I believe, that the evil in the world wants me to worry about so that I don't accomplish the purpose of God..
Instead, I feel called to ministry for free and to spend as little money as possible..I love what this German Grandma has done..and of course, with a husband and family, I can't just pack a suitcase and backpack and sofa surf, but I can limit my personal use of money..
Necessary Personal Expenses:
1) Car Insurance: $54/month
2) Meds: $61/month
3) Gas: New Goal: 2 tanks a month: $80/month - if friends & family live far away, meet half way at a park to save money..don't limit fellowship, just driving time..
Free or Very Inexpensive Stuff:
1) Books & Movies: read & reread & watch what I already own & Library & Online reading material
2) Decorate with Nature from Yard & Parks
