I hope you have enjoyed reading my articles and hopefully learned something new while at it. I love to research and write about the things I read and learn about. I began this ministry as a way to reach other victims of sexual and domestic violence as I am a survivor of both. But unfortunately, my work in this ministry doesn’t pay the bills and I am currently unemployed. I grow a home garden for most of our produce and conserve wherever I can. I live in an older model mobile home which was actually totaled after Katrina. The small business administration offered me a nice loan to get a new one of which I couldn’t pay for, so needless to say, I’m still in it. Well, anyway I’m very grateful we have a roof over our heads, but I’m really having a hard time right now. I’m so discouraged because I can’t find substantial work and have not been asked to counsel anyone (I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Christian Counseling), and my efforts at Tupperware, Avon, and the like have resulted in nothing to speak of. I’ve had a few book sales on Kindle now, but still not enough to pay the very basic bills of lights and water. I am an ordained minister and am trusting God to provide for our needs, but my heart is so discouraged and I’m not sure why God has allowed this situation for so long. I am certainly not without sin and have repented of known sin and am doing my very best to do God’s will, nevertheless I struggle day to day, just like everyone else. I home school my two youngest children and work on my paraphrase of the Scriptures as much as time allows. I believe with all my heart that I am doing the will of God in that work. I work in my garden and clean my Mom’s house and help take care of her needs, as well as teach at our homeschool co-op, so I don’t think laziness is my problem. The only thing I can think of is my lack of experience that would hinder me, but God seems to have closed every door to a job, of which I have applied for many to no avail. As of yet, I have never received a donation to this ministry from any online reader, since I created this website. So I would like to ask if you have been helped at all by this website, please consider making a $1 donation via Paypal (on the side bar of this page) just to show your support for my ministry efforts. You’re more than welcome to download any of our free books or Bible paraphrase for your donation, or email me if you’d like one of our many Christian books for sale. If you can’t or don’t feel inclined to give a $1 donation, then I would ask for your prayers regardless. God bless to all and Go Fish 4 Jesus!
