  1. Hi, I’m a little late with this session. I wasn’t able to listen to it. I have a question about your use of credit cards for gas. How does this work exactly? Why use a credit card for gas? Do you also use credit cards for other purposes for the benefit of points?

    I’m newly divorced and i’m considering the envelop system to maintain staying on a budget. But I haven’t started yet.

  2. One way that my family was able to bless others happened a month ago today. My husband’s cousin had given birth to their 3rd child. 12 hours later, their house was set on fire!! Crazy!! When we found out we immediately grabbed what we felt they could use (food, toiletries, paper plates, plastic ware etc) and headed to their house to help them out. They were boarding up their home when we got there. It was so sad to go from such a joyous and happy occassion to have that happen to them. They have thanked us over and over for all we did. At the time, I didn’t think of it as blessing someone. I just felt we were doing what needed to be done. It felt good to be able to help them and it showed my daughters the importance of giving and helping others in their time of need. We are so thankful that no one was hurt or worse during the fire. Things can be replaced but a life cannot.

  3. Through the previous church we attended, I organized a Thanksgiving food collection. This was different than previous “food giving” collections in the past because I contacted an elementary school in our church neighborhood and asked for names of families who were in need of a meal. We provided everything from turkey & stuffing to cranberry sauce and pie making goodies. It was a complete meal. One family is etched in my memory because the mother called her children in when we went to drop off the food. She told each one of them to look at us. Then she told them, if we had not brought this meal they would not have had a holiday dinner. I still get tears in my eyes when I think about their little faces with bright shiny hopeful eyes.

    Giving is not always about the money you personally give, it can be your time, your organization skills or just being there. It’s not about the accolades we get here on earth for doing a kind deed, it’s about having the right heart to do it even when no one else may ever know. Blessings will follow.

    I love the heart of the iBloom team and that each member is such a stellar example as Christian woman. Titus 2 reminds us that we are to show the women how to behave, teach, be wives and mothers and this team definitely brings all of that to the table and so much more. Thank you for your leadership.

  5. Im very much like my grandmother I give of all that I have when I can and if I can’t I always find ways to connect those in need with resources. Im very intentional about my giving, I created a program recently through my business called the Bar of Hope Program, when someone purchases a soap bar I match each bar for bar and quaterly I create a packages of soap and deliver them to a childrens organization or womens shelter. I also take 10% out of all sales and put this in a fund which allows me to be able to give to my coumminty or someone in need. I was very generously blessed through ibloom during a difficult time a few months ago with the loss of my grandmother and I have forever been changed by this blessing and expirence When we put God first and serve others with our talents and work together GREAT Things can happen.
