The 7 Experiment by Jen Hatmaker – Week 7

Spending This week’s group meeting was the most liberating time.   Several of us admitted that we are very frustrated with not being able to accomplish what we would like to in the one-week allotted time for each topic.   One of our participants suggested taking baby steps.   Change one thing.   Then change another thing.   Then another.   We don’t have to accomplish everything at once.   In fact, I don’t believe we CAN.   Hallellujah!   Jen Hatmaker took a month to do each of these things.   Habits can develop in a month, but generally not in a week.   Keep striving, sisters and brothers! Now onto the subject of spending…   I didn’t engage in a fast.   In fact, I am trying to get other areas under control, so I’m spending more right now to get my garden in shape for summer.   The majority of my income is spent on mortgage, car payment, monthly bills like power, water, etc. and debt.   I don’t eat out much.   Usually once a month with my Sunday School class.   Not only can’t
