Moving Forward

Do you remember looking at lists of ‘stressors’ and seeing your problems? Life happens. “Yes.” It is there. It’s OK to be upset or almost unglued, because ours is a common and real problem. That was yesterday. But here we are today, a widow. (I still don’t like the word.) Numb, puzzled, vulnerable, sad, frightened, angry, yet laughing at things most don’t find so funny.

Resources

We inform, encourage, and equip widows. We provide books, DVD¹s, Journals, CD¹s, radio podcasts, church resources and tools, spiritually based and practical. Internationally we provide skill training for widows for economic independence.

I’m Miriam  Neff-with STARTING OVER FINANCIALLY,-and I’m Valerie Neff Hogan, and we’re here to talk about money M Old testament directives defined how loans could be made.  It might be with a cloak for security or years of work to pay back.  Imagine the impact on that relationship.  He has my cloak until I pay him back.
