Thrift - Home Economy - Index of Featured Articles

Lilacs from the Garden at Mrs. White's Table in Vermont

Economy -
"A frugal and judicious use of money." (Webster's 1828)

The following is a list of featured articles. [I will be adding new posts to this list as we go along.] These are  real stories from my own life. You'll see me struggling, and read about answered prayers. In other posts, you will see success and abundance. We all have our times of poverty and of wealth. The goal, however, is to remain steady and controlled, always being careful with our money. It is an ongoing process.

I can't wait to dig into these! The Lord is really speaking to me for awhile about being a good steward of His resources to our family. Your blog has helped so much with that.
