Teaching Kids About Money Giveaway

I need something like this to help me with the topic of teaching my kids. I love getting them ready for the future. 


This post contains affiliate links if clicked on I may receive a small commission to support this blog. Teaching Kids About Money Giveaway

Welcome to the Teaching Kids About Money Giveaway!

Learning Resources and the author of Expecting Money: The Essential Financial Plan for New and Growing Families have come together for this giveaway!  They want to share some tips with parents on how to teach your kids about money, hope these help!
  1. Play the, “What do you think it costs?” game. Ask your child to guess the price of everyday items. It's a fun way to teach value.
  2. Send older kids on a price-war scavenger hunt. When at the grocery store, have them find cereal, bread, milk, or other foodstuff with the best price. Then discuss whether it really is or isn’t a good deal.
  3. Reward hard work. When you're with your child, buy from another kid’s lemonade stand and give a buck to a busker. Provide your child with work-for-pay opportunities - make sure they’re challenging and expect a job well done.
  4. Explain how to use an ATM. You’re there anyway, so explain what’s going on. You deposited money that the bank is holding for you, this is how to swipe a card, deposit checks, etc.
  5. Save for a goal together. Choose something your child or family wants to do and then make a big production out of contributions. Even a toddler throwing a dime into the pot is a moment to celebrate.
  6. Treat your things well and teach your child to do the same. Explain that you work hard to purchase the items you all enjoy. Your time and effort is valuable.
  7. Encourage entrepreneurship. Kids can sell their unwanted toys or clothes online or in the driveway (with your help, when they’re young), walk dogs, or come up with their own money-making venture. Watch Shark Tank together for ideas and a healthy dose of reality.
  8. Talk about financial values. Be open about what you think is right and wrong about money but be respectful of your child’s emerging perspective.
  9. Teach your child to pay - early. Even a kindergartner can buy a drink at a cafe. On days when no one else is in line, let him or her order and hand the money over. Explain how to count the change and drop the right gratuity in the tip jar. This process should not be a mystery by the age of ten.
  10. Give a tax lesson. When you get a store receipt, show your child the line item for sales tax and tell him where that money goes. Explain that some of  what you earn goes to the federal government, too. Roads, fire stations, defense, and schools are financed this way.

If We Are Honest On The Road Again - 4Ms #Music

I was able to spend a whole week with my kids. We had no money to go hang outside the home, and we were kinda under the weather (I was mostly sick), and I was also babysitting the whole week. But we had a good week together and made it count as best as possible. I love spending time with my loves. They are precious and all too soon they grow up and will be away. Life right.

The weekend was alright also, but always too short. Hope y'all got some rest in.

And our furball just turned a  year old. We should celebrate or something...sleep perhaps :)

jamericanspice

Our Spotlight Dancer this week is

John from “the Sound of one Hand Typing”!



If We're Honest

Truth is harder than a lie
The dark seems safer than the light
And everyone has a heart that loves to hide

I'm a mess and so are you
We've built walls nobody can get through
Yeah, it may be hard, but the best thing we could ever do, ever do

(CHORUS)
Bring your brokenness, and I'll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy's waiting on the other side
If we're honest
If we're honest

Don't pretend to be something that you're not
Living life afraid of getting caught
There is freedom found when we lay our secrets down at the cross, at the cross

(CHORUS)

It would change our lives
It would set us free
It's what we need to be

(CHORUS)

Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases

I received a copy of this book for this review. 

I used to think that I had things in control when it comes to organizing, but having two children and a husband has proven me wrong.

I definitely need helpful tips to keep things from going south like a tornado scene!

I was happy to receive the book Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases.

I get to bookmark and highlight all the things I want to do and go at my own pace. This book is so very detailed! I love how she puts the information together. Listen, if you need the help, you will definitely find more than one areas in this book that will work great for you!

I recommend!



Organizing for Your Lifestyle: Adaptable Inspirations from Socks to Suitcases

Organizing for Your Lifestyle is a fun, inspiring guide to organizing all aspects of your life, from socks to suitcases.

Studies show that decluttering can not only reduce stress, but provides peace of mind and improves your mood. In Organizing for Your Lifestyle, you’ll learn the science behind organization and not only how to get organized, but how to stay organized.

The book is arranged (very meticulously, of course!) into common themes to help you organize your home. From the kitchen to the bathroom, Stoller shares ideas, advice and inspiration to help you lead a happier and healthier life. There’s also a special chapter for travel. Packing properly for a once-in-a-lifetime trip means you’ll stress less and be able to enjoy that trip even more!

Organizing is a lifestyle, but it isn’t one-size-fits-all. This book is written in such a way that any reader can benefit from. Whether you are single or part of a large family, live in an apartment or a mansion, incorporating organization into your life can help maximize your potential to accomplish more on a daily basis.


“I’m constantly finding new ways to get and stay organized, and I love sharing these ideas with my friends and family,” says Stoller, “This book is about sharing what I know and what I’ve learned from organizing my own life and helping others organize theirs.”


Excerpt

I want to go back, to give you a sense of where my organizing habits started. Ever since I can remember, my friends and family have always been amazed at how organized my home and especially my closet was… and still is! Throughout my life, I’ve fielded a steady stream of requests to help friends clean and organize their closets, and I’ve always happily obliged, because organizing is my passion. I would follow up each organizing session with detailed letters outlining what the friends who came to me for help could do to sustain the sense of order I’d created.

I didn’t only organize closets for friends, but also pantries, garages and offices. This is why I wrote this book: to put my passion on paper and to share how simple it is to be organized. I am, and have always been, very serious about my passions. Case in point: even though I’m terrified of flying, I travel a lot. And during every airplane flight, I find myself thinking, oh no, I didn’t pass along my organizing secrets to all my friends yet! What if this plane doesn’t land! Hopefully, my planes will continue to land safely. But I still can’t be everywhere at once, helping out the friends I’ve made all over the world. That in mind, this book lets my friends access my organizing tips whenever they want, even when I’m not there to personally guide them through the process of putting things in rows and boxes.

Ultimately, this book is about sharing what I know, and what I’ve learned, from organizing my own life, and helping others organize theirs. Plus, I really want to give a unique home-made Christmas gift to my friends this year—so, Merry Christmas 🙂

I’ve often been asked if my parents are super organized, and if I grew up in a very disciplined, neat home. Although our home was always clean and tidy, my mother was in no way as committed to organizing as I was. At six years old, I started to organize my cats by size, finding myself continually frustrated when they wouldn’t stay put. Then I organized my stuffed animals by colour and size. When I first started reading, I would organize my books by title or size. I read a lot of books by Roald Dahl, and from the Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley High series, so they were easy to organize by author or publication date. When I became interested in fashion, and started to build up my wardrobe, organizing my closet became my favourite secret hobby. I say secret, because I felt lame telling my friends that I was staying home on a Saturday night to re-organize my closet—and I did do this, on more than one Saturday.

So where did my organizing knack come from? I think it must be from my Swiss roots. Switzerland is a country that’s uber-organized and efficient, perhaps stemming from its small size, which makes order essential. The Swiss tend to have smaller houses and living quarters than North Americans; they also tend to invest in quality over quantity, and often prefer a more minimalist lifestyle. My mother also confessed to me that one of my Great Uncles was an obsessive organizer; she remembers visiting him and being impressed by his extensively polished and organized shoe collection. So, maybe I inherited the organizing gene from my extended Swiss family.

As I discussed above, my passion for organizing extends to helping others. I’m constantly finding new ways to get and stay organized, and I love sharing these ideas with my friends and family. A short text from a friend saying that she colour-coded two bags of clothing before donating them puts a smile on my face, as does waking up each day to my organized space and knowing exactly where everything is.

Much of my practical organizing experience comes from living in small apartments and having to adapt to small spaces. I believe that as more and more people move to cities and face smaller living quarters, we’re increasingly challenged to do more with less. When living in a small space, being organized becomes a central part of any quest to be successful, have time for meaningful relationships, and maintain a healthy, beautiful body and mind. You may think I’m exaggerating, but getting and staying organized will improve every aspect of your life, and smaller spaces leave less room for organizing errors.



About the Author

Jane Stoller was born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada. Her parents immigrated to Switzerland in order to follow their dream of owning a dairy farm.

Jane’s love for organizing began as a child as she was often found happily lining up her pet cats, stuffed animals and books.  Growing up, her passion for organizing shifted to all types of storage space with a special desire for revolutionizing closets! Coupled with her entrepreneurial spirit, Jane has shared her organizing skills with countless friends and colleagues.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in History and Political Science and a Master’s in Business Administration from Canada’s top universities.  Jane currently lives in Zurich, Switzerland and works in the construction industry.

The Crown Of Hope - #Music

I get to have this whole week with my children. As a mother, I love these times. They are precious. It doesn't always run smooth, but I love spending time with them. Soon they'll grow up and leave.

We had a wonderful Easter together just being.

Our church did this amazing journey with the cross program for families and it was a blessing to walk through the bible in such an amazing way!

God is good.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

No automatic alt text available.

It is well


Even If

They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now
Right now I'm losing bad

I've stood on this stage
Night after night
Reminding the broken
It'll be alright
But right now
Oh right now I just can't

It's easy to sing
When there's nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I'm held to the flame
Like I am right now

I know You're able
And I know You can
Save through the fire
With Your mighty hand
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Good thing
A little faith is all I have right now

But God when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Give me the strength
To be able to sing
It is well with my soul

I know the sorrow
I know the hurt
Would all go away
If You'd just say the word
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

You've been faithful
You've been good
All of my days
Jesus, I will cling to You
Come what may
‘Cause I know You're able
I know You can

It is well with my soul

Happy Easter Celebrations - Why?

We celebrate because of the hope of resurrection. If no resurrection, then why bother caring? 


Happy Easter Celebrations - Why?

The Hope Of The Resurrection:


"Easter means that in a world when injustice, violence, and degradation are endemic, God is not prepared to tolerate such things."



The hope that comes from the resurrection of Jesus


1. Hope that I can change 
Mark 14:49-50, Acts 5:40-41 , 8:3

God will move into your life and transform you. 

* You don't have the power to change yourself. There are character so deep-seated, that God has to work in you to change. 


2. Hope of having a place where I belong 
Acts 13:1-3, 20:4-6

*Everything that is going on today was also happening during the time of Jesus walk on earth. 


3. Hope that death is not the end of my story
Acts 1:3-6, 17:31-32, 7:59, 20:7-12

*There's a universal fear about our own mortality

* There is another chapter after this life


4. Hope that justice will eventually reign
Acts 2:44-45, 4:32, 20:35

*If the resurrection didn't happen, then why do you care? Why do you care about injustice of any kind? 

* The church runs with social justice because of the hope of Jesus' resurrection. It will all be made right some day. 


5. Hope of a direct, personal, love relationship with God. 
Acts 4:12, 8:26, 9:1-6, 13:2, Romans 5:11, John 1:12

*There's this gnawing sense of aloneness in this world. 
This gnawing sense of who am I? ...of why am I here? 

Jesus holds out his gift of salvation for us to find the answers by giving us hope. 


It's your choice. Choose for yourself today. 

Happy Easter y'all.
