In Faith

I really wanted to write this post to celebrate the single moms on Mother’s Day. I think that it is extremely important because unfortunately, we can experience judgmental, condescending, and critical attitudes from others because we are single moms.

5 Critical Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Lend Money to Someone

In Frugal, Phenomenal

Have you ever been approached by a friend or a family member who requested to borrow money from you?  Sometimes it can be a really uncomfortable situation.  I think that if someone asks to borrow money that you should proceed with caution.  According to a survey done for CouponCabin.com, money ruins 1 in 5 friendships. To help avoid ruining a friendship, one of the things that you should consider is shifting the language of the request.  Think of lending money as a gift and not a loan.  The reason is to avoid the expectation that you will get that money…
