Be a Blessing ~ Wisdom for a Tough Economy

~ More resources to help you just like in my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

I posted the message below on Facebook yesterday. Many of you don’t have access to Facebook so I wanted you to be aware of this as well.

The next several years may be difficult ones due to cuts in government programs like food stamps, Obamacare rollout, fallout from Obamacare, continued unemployment, and our government’s debt and shutdown crisis issues which are pending as of January 15. It’s obvious that long-term solutions need to be found to keep this country from further decline. In some ways as you live your life this may seem like the best of times — yet for our country it may be the worst of times as Shakespeare once said. While things change on a daily basis around the world and throughout the United States including our government, one thing alone does not change: God. And so as you read the rest of the post below, remember that there is Hope and Good News for all of the world’s citizens. Why? Because you can always choose to put your faith and trust in God. For more see the Relationship with God tab on this blog.

Thanks so much ~ Make it a great day!

God Bless You!



Due to the Instability of the Economy (From Facebook):

Some single ladies and I were talking about the economy yesterday while attending a special program at someone’s house. We agreed that things may get to the point where people will have to double up in their living situations.

~ so if you have an extra room or a big house, think about getting it ready for others that may need help. I think we are in for a rough ride this next year.

~ and if you aren’t affected by the economy, look around to see how you can be a blessing to someone else who through no fault of their own is struggling. Thank you!

Cleveland Area Housing Assistance + More!

~Today’s list of special resources are in keeping with all the great types of information in my new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.


Welcome! This information came across my desk and so I thought I’d share it with you. You may know someone that is going through a tough time and needs the help these agencies can provide.

First Call for Help ~ From United Way

If this housing list isn’t helpful but you need some help, there’s always United Ways First Call for Help (just call 2-1-1) for all sorts of help that’s available within the community. They can direct you to food banks, legal advice, counseling, renters rights, emergency help programs in the community, and more. Have your pen and paper ready.

If you need some assistance, check Modest Needs. They have three categories of grants that could help you especially if your income is limited.

Whatever your situation is today, I pray these resources help you! They are here to equip you with POWER for your life. Then again, God has all the power you’ll ever need to live a great life. Tap into His power today!

God Bless You!
