Comment Tuesday - Giveaway; Topic: Being Homeless
The review posted today is Hearts of Compassion by Eryn Grace. The story revolves around a homeless shelter.
I have never been homeless but I always try to be mindful that "there, but for the grace of God, go I."
My husband and I did “downsize” at one point to get a handle on debt and maintain our family when I unexpectedly lost a good paying job. We went from a $150,000.00 home to a $55,000.00 home and were able to be debt free except for the mortgage within three years.
I have had occasion to work with people (clients or church friends) who have had to struggle when they lost their jobs and couldn’t keep their homes. I have also seen people who refused to downsize and ended up losing everything.
review or share an experience you have had regarding the homeless or downsizing. A comment on either post will be counted as an entry and a meaningful comment on both will be two entries. The winner will get to pick a book from the Friday Pick lists or a gift card if international.
I have been doing Tuesday comment Giveaways now for several weeks. I have decided to extend the drawing deadline from Tuesday's post to the following Monday at 10pm Centeral with winner to be announced (hopefully) on the next Tuesday. This will hopefully allow a few more people to comment who might not be able to get to the post right away.
