I decided to do the challenge because I wanted to commit to doing something I know would never be a bad thing. A lot of self-awareness has been taking place in my life and I wanted to get back to a place of peace I always experienced in the past from tithing. My personal challenge was not only to complete the challenge but to also make sure my tithes were the FIRST thing paid when I was paid on the 15th and 30th. No matter what, I decided this is what I was going to do and I prayed to God to help me to trust He would take care of my daughters and me. In a way, this is truly more than I could have ever imagined or thought, I've been blessed with a new job with - to be exact- a $20,064.00/year annual increase. In addition, it is a step in the direction I have wanted to go in order to utilize the Master's degree I obtained in January. The more I have gotten out of the way and trusted God to lead me, I've been blessed way more than any prayer I could prayed. This challenge has truly changed my life.
