Money Matters: Of Educational Plans and Mutual Funds

I talked about jars of oil in my previous blog, Teaching kids how to manage their money. In the blog, I said there that God provides ways for us and we will see it if we focus on what we have instead of dwelling on what we do not have. Even for things like Educational plans and Mutual Funds. Here’s a little backstory for you.

#Fit2LiveFree with Sun Life Financial: Quit worrying, do something!

I have not really thought much about how much we need to think about our family’s health care until I attended Sun life Financial’s #Fit2LiveFree campaign last Monday, June 8, as part of their Financial Independence month celebration. We have, what I think is a reliable HMO, which we’ve counted on in our children’s hospitalizations the past four years. I somehow knew it wasn’t enough, but I didn’t know how else to approach health finances. Which is why it’s great that I came to the event because it showed me that there are other options for people like us. Listening […]
