~ More wisdom to help you in keeping with my new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.


A new year kind of wipes the slate clean. But then again, sometimes not. Here are just a few of the helpful quotes you’ll find in my book. I hope they give you some great perspective for your life and lifts you to new heights today.

Managing Your Money ~ tips on what NOT to do

~ Advice on handling or rather how not to handle your money is the subject of this post. In fact, I share financial information too in my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

Here’s a little background to help you today:

Dave Ramsey is a well-known and reputable financial counselor. I’ve listed his book the Total Money Makeover in my book as a reference and resource for you. Dave at the age of 26 had an income of $250,000 a year and was worth about a million dollars. However, due to debt he lost everything.

Read more of his story at his website. His own mistakes are the reason he has been sharing financial concepts and makes it all available to help people like you and me.  See information and links below.

NOTE: You can also WIN a FREE copy of my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland by visiting the tab of the same name on this site. Register by January 31.

Make is a great day!

God Bless You!

As You Tiptoe into 2013

~More from Nanci’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

Something to Think About as You Move Forward into This New Year

If you need a vision for how to proceed in the new year, these stragedies may help you. A few of them are from my new book Fresh Hope… Cleveland.

1. When you are unsure about the path you are following, let this thought guide you. “Even in the midst of a Plan B, you really have only one task, one calling. And that is to do what you would do if you were confident God was with you.” ~ Pete Wilson, author of Plan B: What do you do when God doesn’t show up the way you thought He would

Note: Plan B here means an alternative plan than the first one you had.

2. Keep your eyes open throughout the new year for ideas and opportunities. “The intelligent man is always open to new ideas. In fact, he looks for them.” The Living Bible ~ Proverbs 18:15 (from the text of Fresh Hope … Cleveland)

3. Practice gratefulness each morning. If you are going through a tough time right now, you may want to begin your day by recording five (5) different things in your life that you are grateful for. Dwell on those things throughout your day (from the text of Fresh Hope … Cleveland).

I hope these gave you some comfort and direction!

Here’s to a very productive new year ~

God Bless You!
