A Giving Opportunity

This is something I have never done. Any reguilar reader of this blog knows I speak out about the need to be a good money manager. The church my family attends, Crossroads Community Church, in Mansfield, Ohio, has been given a unique opportunity. Through a non-profit ministry, we have been given the opportunity to build 2 -24 bed facilities in Cambodia to get kids off the streets, and away from the sexual and economic exploitation that targets them. This ministry will match, dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000. The last day to give for the match will be Easter Sunday. I'm asking for each of you to pray for this campaign. If you feel led to give, donations can be made at Thank you in advance

Tips for Tipping

How much should you tip when eating out? 10%? 15%? 20%? While there is no set percentage, I would like to show a different point of view. Instead of sitting there figuring out a percentage, why not make the criteria how much the service was worth to you. Was that cup of coffee at the diner just what you needed? How about leaving a 100%, or even a 150% tip? The next time you get a lite meal at Bob Evans or IHOP, why not double, or even triple the bill by giving a nice tip?
Some of you may be thinking that this is extreme thinking. I'm telling you what to do. I'm just trying to get you to think outside the box when it comes to those who bust their tails providing great service.
