I Met Money Saving Mom!

 I was so excited to see that Money Saving Mom would be an hour from our house while checking her blog Wednesday night. It must have been the Lord because we usually are fully committed every Saturday to go on Church Visitation, yet this Saturday it was cancelled! Also she mentioned that the meeting was supposed to be for a Wednesday morning but she penciled it in wrong on her calender. Chris and the kids came too , also our neighbor who needed last minute childcare. Money Saving Mom had her kids there too and they are even cuter in real life. Noah is such a social butterfly he just went right over to hang out with the Payne Children.

 She spoke on  "I'd throw in the Towel if I Could Find a Clean One. Highlighting 15 Key Points including keeping God first, Marriage second, getting up before your children, having a routine, setting goals, keeping your health a priority, having a quiet time, setting goals, Stop comparing yourself, changing habits, making time for things that you love, considering hiring help and to choose contentment =) Chris especially liked the part about flirting with your husband.

 Crystal is so generous and had donuts, coffee, tea, lip balm and even some of her books to give away! There were giveaways too.

 I am so thankful for the opportunity to have met Money Saving Mom in real life =). I got my book back from my friend who was reading it to take in for an Autograph =)

Proverbs 27:17
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
 She met with all the ladies who were there one on one and really has a compassionate heart for all her readers =). I wish I could have stayed there the whole day to talk with her and her family =) Well the best part is that Crystal has accepted Christ as her own personal savior and somewhere in glory land we shall meet again =)

Titus 2:The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

That's so neat! I just had the opportunity to meet a blogger I follow regularly too, isn't it so neat?! Looks like it was a great time. =)

It was so much fun =) It is so neat to see someone in person after you have only seen pictures of them =)

Wow! I am so glad that Crystal shared the link to this post on her FB page. My name is Melissa, and I am the one who asked Crystal to come speak in Joplin. We both said that we knew that the way everything happened had to be the Lord, and reading that your normal Saturday commitment was canceled is just another confirmation! I let myself feel pretty bad about everything that happened with the confusion earlier in the week, but hearing stories like this (and you aren't the only one with a story about God making a way for you to be there!) totally wipe all that away. God is so good :) Thank you for sharing!

Hi Melissa =), Thank you for arranging to have Money Saving Mom in Joplin =). I love when I think I messed things up pretty bad and then God shows up and let's you know it was not a mistake after all =)Proverbs 16:9 "A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps."
