My name is Lisa Thompson. I have been married to my wonderful husband Fred for 10 years. In 2007, our now 17 and 19 year old daughters joined our family through the blessing of adoption. In December, 2012, we had 6 year old twins join our family and on October 1, 2013, they officially became Thompsons. To say that life is never dull at our house would be an understatement!
When I began blogging, our family had a staggering amount of debt…over $80,000 (not including our house). We felt like our situation was hopeless. Thankfully, my husband purchased The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness (with a credit card because we were ridiculously broke) and after reading it, we made some dramatic changes to the way we lived! We also went through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University with our church. I can’t say enough positive things about FPU and I highly recommend that every church offer it at least once a year! It’s truly life changing and will make a huge difference in the lives of the church body and the church itself!
I am now thrilled to say that other than our house, we’re debt free!!! I have been amazed at how God’s provision, coupled with discipline and hard work on our part, has made such a huge difference in our financial life, our family life, and our future endeavors.
As a busy mom of 4, I love sharing things that will help you save time, save money, and save your sanity…and if you’re anything like me, you can use all the help you can in the sanity department.
I’m not naturally frugal, but by saving on everyday purchases, I can afford to splurge on the things I love…shoes, purses, technology, travel and good chocolate. I hope that this blog is a blessing and encouragement to you and your family.
I’d love to hear from you! Comments and feedback are always welcome.
