Today my devotion on being desperate enough to make a positive change ran on Proverbs 31 Encouragement for Today. I'd like to extend a warm welcome to all our devotion readers who have found there way to my little corner of the Internet.
These are very desperate times for many people. I hardly watch the news anymore, because I know I'm going to hear about another company closing its doors, and how many more people are now unemployed. We are not unaffected in our household. Being self-employed is a challenge, especially when some of your consulting clients are in the construction business.
So I thought it might be appropriate to spend some time on how to make money at home. I've been working at home for 10 years, and for the past three years, my husband has worked from home too. Together we have learned a thing or two. Whether you want to work at home full time, or you would like to make some extra money, your home can be a place of financial productivity involving the whole family.
Recently I shared a radio interview with Donna Partow, who wrote a book called "Becoming the Woman God Wants me to Be." This book is a 90-day guide to living the Proverbs 31 life. Donna shares my love of working at home, and said something very bold in the interview. While I can't remember her exact words, basically she said everyone should have a home-based business to increase the revenue streams into the household coffers.
The more I thought about her comment, the more I agreed with her. When we read the Proverbs 31 scripture, we discover a woman who ran several home-based businesses. She used her God-given talents to bring income to her family. If this is God's model for an ideal wife, then maybe we should all be considering how to make money at home.
I shared the interview with Donna because of my own book entitled work@home. If you want to read more about it, please visit Proverbs 31.
In the coming week, I'll share some tips on how to start a home-based business. If God has put this on your heart, I hope some of my experiences will help you.
In His Love,
