Like many families, ours has faced some significant challenges this year. Through it all, I’ve tried to remember how much God has done for us in every “pinch” and tried to have faith that he’ll pull us through again financially as we face a couple of huge, unavoidable expenses in the next week with no obvious way to pay them.
My DH is paid on commission and I thought we’d see some light at the end of the tunnel with his paycheck today. Didn’t happen. Although it’s possible that his next paycheck may cover some or all of these expenses – albeit three days late – it’s an unknown.
So, two questions:
How do you, as fellow Catholics (I’m a convert), best battle anxiety in situations like this?
Like many Catholic moms, I have an online product that could help us – if I sold enough in the next week – but I’m a bit flummoxed about how to best get the word out. Does anyone here know of any Catholic or other Christian classified advertising sites that are inexpensive but get results? I’ve been thinking about Google adwords – using a free coupon I have – but not sure that’s the best place to advertise because the product is clearly for Catholics and other Christians and there’s stiff competition for the phrase “Christian Gifts” (as you can well imagine, this time of year).
Thanks so much for your advice (and prayers)!
