Happy Easter everyone! Today, we are reminded that in spite of all odds, Christ has risen and saved us. Today, is one wonderful day to commemorate just how great He is and how forgiving He is. I hope you were able to attend the early morning ‘salubong’.

Today would also be a great day to commemorate this week’s posts. You might notice that the articles are bible connected because it is the lent season after all. Here’s a quick recap.

We started the week with a lent post that states Lessen Expenses and Neglect Temptation. This is indeed a good season to sacrifice our finances too and be in touch with things that matters most. This is also a good time to lessen our expenses and neglect financial temptations too.

Didn’t you know there are tons of bible verses with regards to debt? Take for instance Proverbs 22:7 that states “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” As a borrower, we are indeed servant to the lender. This can derail our finances and even more our emotions. That is why it is imperative that we get out of debt the soonest.

So you think the 52 Week Money Challenge is just a challenge? Well think again. Don’t you know we can actually relate this one to a bible verse? And it is 1 Corinthians 16:2 that states, “On the first day of the week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.” Read this article and see how this challenge relates to it.

Truth be told, she is not, however her life and her experience makes her exceptional and that is no less than Reese Fernandez Ruiz. Read her life story and how she is able to create the brand, help others and uplift women.

Proverbs 13:11 states, "Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow." This is a clear manifestation that the slow wins the race. Thus, when saving or investing, being able to work slowly and putting in little by little is one formula for wealth. That is why gathering money and saving money are discussed in detail in this post in line with the passage.
