Hi! I’m Apryl. I’ve been blessed with an amazing family. My husband, Jerry, is the provider for our home. I’ve been given the privilege of staying home and homeschooling my three children.
I have identical twin daughters that are 15 years old and a son that is 11 years old. They really keep me on my toes! We are so blessed to live in the beautiful mountains of Southern California.
In 2007, we were swimming in debt. My husband and I both worked 40 hours or more a week just to get the bills paid. Everything else went on our credit cards.
Our kids were young and we realized that we were working really hard just to pay our house payment and keep up with material things. We barely had any family time. Later in 2008, the Lord got a hold of my heart. The Lord was calling me to my first priority in life, Jesus (Hebrews 10:25), I needed to spend more time with Him. I needed to be a good wife (Ephesians 5:22), and a good mother (Deuteronomy 6:5-9).
We decided to make major financial changes in our life. The first major one was me staying home with the kids and learning how to live on one income. Then it was paying off over $35,000 in credit card debt (It’s so scary to type that), downsizing our home, and selling all our toys.
Trust me, I never thought I could be a stay at home mom. It never entered my mind. But God had other plans for us. We were able to complete all our financial changes in a little over 3 years. It was sooo hard but it is definitely a blessing being on the other side of it now. God has been so faithful to us!
I’ve learned so many ways to save money in the past 10 years and I want to share them with you. My purpose in writing this blog is to help you remember to live your life to the fullest.
The Lord has given me a huge conviction of being a good steward of money. That’s where the title of my blog comes from. I’ve learned that I don’t have to be cheap. I can live life to the fullest by setting a good budget and spending money wisely. I’d love to have you join me on my money saving journey!
Feel free to contact me anytime with any of your questions or concerns! Have a Blessed Day!
