Sometimes life is hard. Work can be stressful, family life is sometimes frustrating, and oftentimes you may not have enough energy to keep going. This list of quotes will not fix any of those things, more than likely. But, they will give you some encouragement to keep moving forward. At least that is what they do for me. If you like one, in particular, please share in the comments below how it’s helped you get through a tough time.
In this episode of Dadrenaline, we talk about the importance of surrendering not just yourself, but your kids, to God’s will. We also take a look at an awesome app called Feedly that will organize the things you love to read. Mary and I then go over a variety of topics including our anniversary trip, Spring Break, watching “The Passion of the Christ“, and our plan to possibly move soon.

When Mary and I first began our journey towards Financial Peace, we were completely focused on the years of mistakes we had made as adults when it came to money. We read Total Money Makeover, started a budget using YNAB, and did everything we could to dig ourselves out of the mountain of debt we had buried ourselves under. It was hard…very hard. But, we had a purpose. We wanted to put ourselves in a position where we would not have to worry about anything that has to do with money. We wanted to be able to wipe that stress away so that we could concentrate on the things that really matter – faith, family, and friendships.
I just wanted to share a preview of the new book by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze called “Smart Money Smart Kids”, a great book about how to teach Dave and Rachel’s money principles to your kids. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing more information regarding this awesome tool for building a strong foundation of personal finances for your kids while helping them to build up their confidence and their savings. This system is what we have taught our kids but the book goes even deeper than anything Dave has taught before and includes the unique perspective of Rachel (Dave’s daughter) who grew up following the Dave Ramsey principles.
