  1. Daily Reading 55 If you prefer, you can look up the following verses in your own Bible, of by whatever means and in whichever version you choose. Matthew 5:21-48 Exodus 30-32 Proverbs 14 Audio 6:03 Audio 5:06 Audio 3:45 The above addresses are linked to Bible Gateway. That is an easy way to read (or listen to) the Bible verses, and choose your version. Personally, I prefer written, that way I can go at my own pace, on think about it, before moving on. Nothing wrong with doing either or both. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. See the picture below to get an idea of what to expect if you follow the above links. Note: The audio will not play the exact verses, it will play the whole chapters, in which the verses exist. Thank you Lord for making the your word so accessible for us in these times. Amen
  2. Living on God’s Economy . I think that of all the testimonies I have written, and the stories that I have told, this one takes the cake. About a year and a half ago, I was coming out of a fast food restaurant with my van, and suddenly blacked out without any warning. I do not remember anything that happened, until I came to in the hospital. Needless to say, the van was totaled and so I have not had any transportation since. . The town where I live has a Senior Citizen Center, and seniors can eat there free. Not only that, but also this town has a taxi service and for those who eat at the center can call the taxi any time and go anywhere in town free. It’s a wonderful service and arrangement. . Anyway, I’ve been eating lunch each day there and recently met a man and his wife. He told me a story of how he had a house up the lake, and turned power of attorney over to his son. Long story short, his son took it upon himself to decide all the financial details about the man’s life. Even though this man has money in the bank, he can’t touch it, and must live on $150 per month. I found out also that this man is musically talented and has written over 100 songs. All of the music that he has written is written out longhand. . My son bought me software some time ago, whereby I can now simply speak into mic and the words come up on the screen. Practically no more typing. For that reason I could take something someone wrote longhand, recite it into the mic, and transcribe onto my laptop, then format it any way I want. . So as a labor of love - without charge - I have taken it upon myself to take this man’s hundred pages of music, and put it into print. This is not the first time I have preserved someone’s legacy, and I imagine it will not be the last. But thanks to my son buying me this software, I can make something happen that would have never been possible before. . I want to tell you good advice if you want to know God’s will for your life. Proverbs 3:5,6 says “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Again and again I have worked on peoples’ lifetime work and was able to format it into print or DVDs or other media and create a legacy that would otherwise go by the wayside. This one is no exception. Now as I said, I am doing this project for him as a labor of love. It’s going to be a massive project, and if I were to charge someone a dollar amount, it would never happen. I won’t worry about money. I don’t worry about where the money comes from. I trust God for my finances. And God has an economy. What He is saying in this situation is this: “David, as a result of you doing a project like this, I’m going to give you the desires of your heart.” . My son (the same one who bought me this software) and I have been looking over the Internet for a vehicle. I have poured over many, many vehicles for sale and found a few options that we might go out and look at. For whatever reason - and to this moment I do not know why - I decided to go back over and look at them all over again. Wonder of wonders, I came across a 1993 Plymouth Voyager. Most of the vehicles are selling for around $1000 and up. Anything less was not running - bad transmission - etc. This one was in good running condition, and the selling for $500. The owner JUST POSTED IT! . The next day, my other son and I went to look at it, and bought it. Now as far as I’m concerned, as I look at money, transactions and economy, I am saying to myself “here I am willing to do a project for someone as a labor of love, and find a $1000 Van for $500! Tonight, that van is parked in front of my house. Between getting tags current, insurance, and some things done to the van that needs work, the total cost is around $1000, which is still a very good deal. . My son has a heart of gold. He bought me this software that I transcribe material on to the computer. I wanted to borrow money from him to buy this vehicle. He will not lend me the money. As a labor of love, he is giving me the money! . This whole scenario is a win-win situation on all sides. What happens? God gets the glory! I get the blessing! My son gets the blessing for giving me the money! And I feel that because of what I am doing as a labor of love for this man who has written music that it is putting a whole series of events into motion. . Now I have entitled this “Living on God’s Economy.” If I had done everything that I do as a business, charging X amount of dollars for projects I work on, everything you read about here could never have happened. The reward comes from doing something as a labor of love, and God sets in motion a whole series of events, and all based on love and giving! My God is alive, and He is on the throne! . PS: If you want to know about this software mentioned above, email me. Dr. David Film FilmDavidB@Yahoo.com alturl.com/6j95o
  3. Here are a few suggestions for making extra money for high school and college students towards the end of this year and next: 1. Mow lawns/Bag leaves - The summer months are gone (assuming you live in the U.S.?). But next summer is right around the corner! Lots of opportunities with lawns out there. My uncle does this during the end of spring and summer. It’s a nice side business. You can use your own equipment or see if the neighbor may have it. Gathering and bagging leaves in the fall can be lucrative as well. An extra $20-30 a week per lawn would come in handy. 2. Freelance Writing - People will pay for writing articles. A blog is a good place to start. 3. Get a Newspaper Route - There is nothing like riding a good bicycle, having a good arm, waking up and working at dawn. Early risers would love this job. People with a determination to make some extra cash could enjoy this too. This job can generate an extra $500-$2000 a month easily. 4. Become a Dog Walker - People get paid every day to walk dogs. Lots of people have pets. Yet they work too much or just prefer for someone else to handle certain aspects of pets training. Why not offer this service to people in your neighborhood? 5. Sell stuff online on EBay or Amazon - Do you know a lot about some niche segment? Say baseball cards, yearbooks, comic books, specialty toys? Find a niche and start making a profit! 6. Become a mystery shopper - Mystery shoppers can work flexible hours. Sometimes you even get to keep your purchases! Note: Avoid companies that want you to pay a fee up front. 7. Babysit some kids - Know a family with kids? Babysit them for cash! Parents are always looking to go out on a date or run errands. Sometimes even voluntary babysitting can eventually turn into a paid position. 8. Write a Book or an eBook - Are you an expert at something? Are you a good story teller or good at poetry? My wife published a book of poems in 2010. Her first book and we broke about even. eBooks are really cheap and becoming more popular as well! 9. Tutor students - Do you play an instrument? Are your particularly good at Math, Science, English, History? If you speak any other language (Spanish, German, or French?) tutoring kids or even adults can be profitable. I did this in high school and made $10-15 an hour tutoring people in English. My sister does this and charges $20 an hour. She’s a full-time student and not even 20 years old yet! 10. Run errands for the elderly - Get to know people in your community or church (if applicable) who may need to go to the bank or for you to get their groceries. Sometimes even voluntary errand running can eventually turn into tips or even a paid position. 11. Fix people’s PC’s - Start out with family/friends. Computers are always breaking down or having viruses. I have a friend who fixes people's PC's for $20-$50 a pop. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes. Others it takes a couple of hours. 12. Do consulting - Know some programming languages? Charge $50 and put a decent website together for a startup business. Web design or graphics design is always a good place to start. Start out cheap and build your reputation and portfolio. Businesses always need their sites updated, promos with graphics, etc. I have a cousin who makes about $1200-$2500 a month depending on the business on this. He has been doing this for a little over 2 years now. 13. Sell Digital Photos - Have a decent camera? Offer to do some photo shoots for free. Then as word gets out you could start your own photography business. Facebook, Twitter, etc. are all great social outlets for building your business. 14. House Sit - Vacation season is upon us. This can be a great 1-2 week gig. I got free rent for a couple of months one summer by staying at someone’s house. Winter time means families travelling to see loved ones. 15. Join a Focus Group - Google “Focus Group” and see how many hits you can get. There is always some company willing to pay a little something for your thoughts, opinions, etc. 16. Paint - See a neighbor’s house that might need painting? Ring the doorbell and ask them if you could offer your services. They provide the paint and tools you provide the labor. It’s a win/win situation. 17. Sell Stuff From Home - See what you can sell at Half Price Books or eBay. Then sell whatever else you can in a garage sale. Remember one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. 18. Clean homes - People don’t always want or (supposedly) have time to clean their homes. Not the most luxurious job but a great opportunity to make some extra money. My wife did this while in high school and even college. Was steady work and building up a clientele through word of mouth can really net you some great customers. 19. Find Odd Jobs on Craigslist Neighborhood adds and word of mouth not working? People always need things done. Do you have a truck and are able to help some people move furniture? Or perhaps paint? Or de-clutter someone's garage? Or perhaps mow some yards? 20. Deliver pizzas at night - Tips, Tips, Tips! Even if it’s just for the summer or winter it’s a great way to generate some cash. 21. Go back to school - Sometimes going back to school for certification or a BA in Business or other field can open up new opportunities. Getting a masters or a MBA could be a useful tool in making oneself more marketable. I did this and after hard work in almost 6 years of school landed a job making double what I used to make. Thoughts? Comments? Which suggestion did you like best? Constructive feedback? Any more good ideas to add to the list? Source I used: http://christianpf.com/ways-to-earn-extra-money-from-home/

  7. 33) Wedding & Gift Registration: 33a) Target Registry is somewhat easy to use. Kiosks can be a bit of a pain at times as they are self-service. Keyboards often stick and logging in can be a pain. Guns are fun to use so don’t get carried away. Returns are relatively easy. They allow two returns for unlimited products without receipts. There is also a 10% discount on everything remaining on your registry mailed out 4-8 weeks before your Life Changing Happy Event. 33b) Bed Bath & Beyond ( & Buy Buy Baby) Registry is really easy to use. The list is printed off by associates. They have consultants readily available for questions and a tour. This was by far the best experience. Returns are really easy and are done at the registry. They allow unlimited returns without receipts in most instances with the assistance of a manager. There is also a 10% discount coupon on everything remaining on your registry mailed out 4-8 weeks before your Life Changing Happy Event. 33c) Dillard’s Registry is somewhat easy to use. The list is printed off by associates at a kiosk. They have consultants available for questions a majority of the time. While employees are cordial they weren’t always helpful. In fact many of them ignored us as we weren’t actually buying anything. This was somewhat of a disappointing experience. Returns were not always easy. You have to go a specific customer service department and there was often a wait. They allow returns with receipts. Refunds are in the same amount as the tender paid or as gift cards. There is also a 10% discount on everything remaining on your registry after your Life Changing Happy Event. 33d) My advice? Sign up for things you will use throughout the year not just what people would think of “traditional” wedding gifts (specifically at Target & BBB) and you can still get a 10% discount on items up to 1-2 years after your Life Changing Happy Event. Toilette Paper, Cleaning Supplies, Formula, Baby Food, Baby Wipes, or Diapers anyone? See store exclusions for details. 33e) I’d love to hear from people who have had experiences with registry’s with Sears, Macey’s, Walmart, JCPenney’s, etc. 34) OpenOffice Why pay for Microsoft Office when you can get a similar set of programs for free? Try Openoffice.org it includes programs that are compatible with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Did I mention this was FREE? Forget spending $100+ on Microsoft Office. Try it out for a few weeks at the very least.
