I’ve been working on this little pep talk workbook for the last few weeks.
It is for you if:
You aren’t sure what God wants you to do next
You feel Lost
You recently lost dreams and vision for your life
You are disappointed in your season of life
You want more clarity
If this is you, you are in good company. I get it! I’ve felt lost recently especially after moving back to America from Ukraine but in this 7 day workbook I’ve included truths that God’s been wrecking my life with.
In this episode I’ve read one of the days of the workbook and a few notes. Give it a listen here 👇🏼 or keep reading to grab the free workbook now!
HEY! If you are in this season of discovery send me an email and tell me what you thought of the workbook! I want to hear from others in the same season of discovery. I want to hear and learn from you too!
Sometimes God gives us options and we can choose which direction to take. He doesn’t always clearly ‘call’ us into something, sometimes He just equips us to make wise decisions and wants us to listen for His leading.
In this episode, I share how I moved to Ukraine as a 21 year old girl by myself to serve God. I moved there confidently and I didn’t have a clear calling I just knew it was something I had a passion for and wanted to explore.
Give it a listen to be encouraged and go make that difficult decision!

Is your budget just not cutting it? Do you need to figure out how to save more money and cut costs? Here are 5 tricks to saving money starting with your purpose, diving into cooking and even the softwares I use to save money on autopilot.
Now that you have a budget and can look through it let’s specifically look at the categories that are not the vital ones.
For example vital budgets are rent, electricity, food, gas, etc.
We are trying to look at where you spending the most money that is optional like eating out, shopping at Target and on.
After find where you are spending the most money, and before we see how we can cut back, I need to think about something.
Why do you want to save money?
I need you to get really specific. Do you wish to go on vacation? Not stress about living paycheck to paycheck? Have enough money to invest? Go debt free?
Think about it and come up with your own unique purpose and why. That is what will drive you to saying no in the moment when over spending can come easily.
Write it on post it notes. Don’t drive to Target. Avoid shopping when you are bored. Really lean into your bigger long term plan so you can say no in the moment.
2. Use all your FREE resources first
Are you living in college? Do you need furniture for your apartment? Ask mom. Go through the basement. Ask relatives and friends about anything they are getting rid of.
Do you constantly buy new books at the bookstore? Go to the library! Reserve that book online and go pick it up! It’s like Christmas to me and I am saving money for those books I HAVE to own. You can do it too.
I realize a lot of people will actually hate this one but it can save you SO MUCH MONEY! It costs 10 or MORE per person to go eat out. Every once in a while is totally fine but multiple times a week will eat up ALL your budget.
So first you gotta learn to cook at home and this scares a lot of people but it is WAY easier than you would think.
I learned to cook by being thrown in the deep end. I moved to Ukraine with NO IDEA how to cook whole foods. They don’t have grocery stores like ours but a lot of booths farmers market style. At these booths you have to tell what item, how much weight then pay. That was A LOT of Russian for someone who didn’t speak any 😂
One month in and I almost starved. I learned real quick after that inital hump.
I am going to share a few secrets.
Start with one dish. You are going to make this dish several times until you aren’t stressed about it and it tastes pretty good. A gerat example of this is chicken and veggies. Simply buy frozen veggies and use lemon pepper on the chicken on the stove and BAM you can cook one meal.
The goal is to have 7 meals you can rotate through at home without stressing about them. I heard this as a mom hack once and even though I only feed one mouth I’ve been working on my schedule to save me time and money.
Figure out how many times you eat out every week then cut it down. Don’t allow more than a few times and keep that purpose for your savings on the forefront of your mind.
Another little hack for this is to order your groceries ONLINE and pick them up at Walmart. I’ve been loving this lately!
