What Every Kid Needs to Know About Greed and Thankfulness

If there is one thing that will ruin your kids’ lives, it’s greed. Teach them while they’re young how to pull the plug on greed, and you will have prepared them in a very important way to not only survive but also thrive in the real world. You might want to start with the simple lesson in today’s post— How to Defeat the Enemy Greed. It’s a lesson I wish I’d learned much earlier in life. It’s difficult to imagine how many life-impacting mistakes I could have avoided had I known this simple thing.

While you may not have children living at home, I would be honored if you shared it with someone who does. Or post it to your Facebook page, and or share it in your other social media circles.

It’s Day 8 in our 40-Day Christmas Challenge (yes, already!) You can listen and download that Episode HERE and also catch up on Episodes you might have missed. It’s not too late!

See you there! Love, m xo

We didn’t save, we didn’t give, we didn’t plan, and we had no idea where all the money went. And surprise, surprise … our two young boys were becoming just like me!

It’s quite a story, but the thing that changed that trajectory for our two children was coming up with an allowance program. All of that in today’s post! See you there … Luv, m xo ❣️

Bring the Kids Into the Kitchen

Kids love to help out in the kitchen, but they don’t want to only watch. They want to get involved. To kids, cooking is like an edible art project. It’s fun for them to help with food preparation, but it’s more than that. Making their own food helps children develop confidence in the kitchen. It […]
