Help Us Save Our Home

This has been a 10-year battle to save our home from bank fraud. A battle that our lawyer believes we can win… The court has set the nominal undertaking at $7200 and that is hard for me to personally do on my own right now. As many of you know I am being a single mom and have disabilities due to an accident I had in 2001 that damaged my back and my neck. This has been our home for 13 years and really the only home my three youngest have known. So far the court has stopped the sale of our home 4 times and then ordered this stay on the foreclosure sale, but as per the law set this moderate undertaking required by law
when someone applies as a poor person to wave the fees for the filings. If they had set this as a monthly payment, I could have done this alone, but since they asked me to do a one lump sum, it’s far harder for me given my income and needing to pay bills.

Any funds raised would be used for this purpose and if we do not meet this goal, all money raised will be used for us to quickly find a new home as the house will be sold very soon. I have prayed and I am praying for answers and for a miracle. This last 3 year has been very hard on the children and I as we fight for our home and face losing it. Many of you already know our story over the years, but those of you who are new may not. Its been a struggle, but one I am not about to give into, to do so would be to me showing a lack of faith. All I know is my God is Able and I am standing…

I am and will always be thankful to anyone who is able to help us with this or our moving if this isn’t stopped.

You may donate personally by using my PayPal faithfulacres7@gmail.com

Thank you for your love to us, words are not enough sometimes to express
how I feel and have felt over the years to those of you who have prayed and walked this out with me… Some have been such a blessing and encouragement in word and deed the last 10 years

Thank you
Linda

I don’t believe in Luck, but I can see the LIGHT !

The Best Dinner I never Ate

By Lori Prentice

 

The Best Dinner I Never Ate is a true story about our family’s experiences with housing needy families and individuals in our own home. Over the last three years we have had these people live with us temporarily, and for free, so they can have a place to stay while saving up money for their own housing. These experiences have been teaching our family about what is truly necessary in our lives, and what it looks like to show God’s love to others. It has also taught us how making time for loving strangers and going out of our comfort zone can leave a lasting impact on a life.

One particular homeless guest we recently housed encouraged us to publish our story. So far it has been inspiring many in our local community, but we believe in the power of the ripple effect. We believe this lesson can be far-reaching and spread Christ’s message of love and selflessness beyond our small town.

We are very far from a perfect family – each of us is a work in progress in our own way. Though we have many areas where we look to others for inspiration, this is one example of being willing to reach out to the vulnerable, the strangers, and the forgotten, even when it makes life harder on us. Help us share our message of love and hope.

The Proceeds from the sale of this book are going to Victim Services and to help the homeless.

Yes once in a while I join giveaways !  I had been praying for the Lord to bless us with money for another kindle fire , the children and I enjoy reading on the one I had  won last year from a contest that Author Julie Lessman and Becky Wade had.  I hardly thought I was going to win her giveaway with over 600 entries on rafflecopter.  but I did, I had 43 entries and I won !

And last year I also won a kindle paperwhite from Helping Hands Press in their Road Rally Blog Hop ! ( I gave this recently to my Daughter in Love who had just gave birth to my new Grandson, I wanted her to have a way to read books and not have to use the library to get them. I wanted to bless her)

Whats my point in a writing this ?

It has nothing to do with luck.

The bible says that ” He makes it to rain on the evil and the good “.

I thank the Lord each time I win, because I know that It comes from the Lord God !

The other thing you need to remember is this: ” If you don’t enter, You can’t win “

It doesn’t matter how many entries there are , a machine in most cases is going to pick the winning entry. So that one entry you didn’t do, well that may be the one you would have won with.

What you need to enter giveaways ( in most cases)

Your Email address

A Facebook Acct.

In my experience these are the top sites that the Person holding the giveaway uses to give you entries.

My Tips for entering Giveaways !

1. Always go back and do your entries daily( Sometimes I forget)

4. Don’t get bent out of shape if you don’t win !

5. Enter Often on as many giveaways s you can for things you would like to win…

6.If it is something you really need, pray about it and ask the Lord to bless you and your family with it.

7. Do not enter giveaways for things you don’t need, just for the sake of entering !!!

8. Praise the Lord and give Him the Glory when you do Win !

I can’t tell you how many times he has blessed me with something that I could use to better our lives. And remember this ok. The BEST way to support your favorite Authors, Publishers or favorite manufacturers is to Join their giveaways and  Share, Tweet, Pin there stuff !!!!
