I just wanted to take a few minutes to write a quick post about a book that I read that I really loved. I've read her blog at moneysavingmom.com off and on for a few years now and followed Crystal on Facebook and now even on Periscope. I love to listen to her scopes on morning motivation and her money making mom scopes too. She's so humble and down-to-earth and she's somebody that I could really see myself being friends with in real life. She's 1 of the couple people that I watch on Periscope almost daily. Anyway, when her new book Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine came out a few weeks ago, I had to read it.
I loved all of her book, but I really loved where she said that "she wants to make a difference, to live each day as though it were my last, and I want to invest my life, my energy, and my time into things that have a lasting impact". She wrote down a few of her goals concerning God, her marriage, her children and inspiring women and my heart teared up. I've given myself some pretty big goals and a lot of mine were what she had written here. God also keeps giving me a certain phrase about feeding the hungry and when I read about the vision that she shared with her friend for the orphans in South Africa, it really spoke to me too. I just really enjoyed seeing how she isn't afraid to dream big and go for things and make an impact there in South Africa.
I loved her chapter on giving back too and having that giving budget. I want to help with family, friends, community, and even on an international level if possible. I loved that she shared some ideas on how to do that. Some, I've already done, but it's given me more ideas as well I am a giver by nature anyway and it gives me great joy to give and make a difference with people. I really love that Crystal is a giver too and is so down-to-earth and real with her readers. She's somebody that I truly wouldn't mind meeting in real life one day.
Now to see where God leads me and my ideas as I begin to pray over them more and more. Her book gave me a lot to think about and I highly recommend that you read it.
