My Blog Disclosure Policy
- Welcome to my blog and business. Whether you are a reader, a business associate, or a new friend, let’s partner together!
- My speaking fees, writing fees, and blog generate income. Some of that income goes back into improving this website, publishing books, Some helps support homeschooling our 2 little blessings and depending on the day -replacing a window or repainting a wall (if they found a permanent marker).
- My content is about Finding Hope & Joy in Christ: Encouraging and Equipping Women to move from Christian to Disciple of Jesus while balancing Motherhood, Wifehood and in some cases Homeschooling with Special Needs. Yes, I write about God. And Jesus. And the Bible. Yes, it’s still okay for me to be successful, and its okay for you to be successful, too. Check out what Michael Hyatt has to say about this
- Said advertising or product promotion will be clearly marked as such. I’ll be straight with you. I’m an honest person, plus it’s the law.
- I’ll never promote a product I don’t believe in myself. I always give honest opinions. If a company sends me a free product or pays me to talk about a product, I’ll tell you if they gave it to me for free, or I was paid to promote the product.
- Some of the links on my blog are affiliate links, which means if you click on them I get a small portion of the sales, at no extra cost to you.
I sincerely thank you if you do some clicking. If not, I still love you. Thanks for reading.
I’m not a therapist, doctor, or ordained minister. I’m your online mentor and support person. Please don’t sue me.
