Awesome pic of your baby. She's so beautiful!
Have you and Stacey ever considered a home-based business? My sister and her husband run a very successful Tupperware business from home. You guys can just do catalog parties if you want. You don't necessarily need to have in-home parties to sell Tupperware. You can also get your local schools to do fundraisers. We have an awesome fundraising program that is very lucrative for consultants.
I can get you started at no upfront costs if you are interested. Just contact me on Aidpage, ok?
Best to you,
My Tupperware Website
Like I tell my kids, y'all -- if it sounds too good to be true, IT IS!!! If you are looking for ways to make money, go with reputable companies that offer work-from-home opportunities. If someone promises you'll make lots of money overnight, or a 6-figure income, or fast cash, run in the other direction. There's no such thing as 'easy money'. You have to work for it. Unless, of course, you inherit money from a deceased family member or friend.
Good luck to all!

Good Work From Home Resources
I know what you mean by friends being scarce when we have problems. It's like they are all dealing with their own issues so they can't handle more on top of it. I oftentimes feel like I'm on my own. Even my own dad isn't able to help me. I have to force myself to persevere when I feel down which is very hard. I just want to stay in bed. The only one that can help me is me when things get rough. That's very hard so I know what you mean. Instead of emailing the pastor, why don't you give him a call, or go to the church? Pastors are just like the rest of us with emails... they're not saints either and sometimes they don't respond right away. It will be more helpful to you if you just 'show up' if you know what I mean. I really do wish you the best and know this is just for a season. Hang in there. When I look at your picture I see life, not death. Lora
DeadInside, I don't know if I'm replying to you like I'm trying to. Not sure yet how this site works. Hopefully you'll get this. You are right... words are worthless unless they are backed up by something tangible, something we can grab ahold of. I read the Bible quite a bit and it says we should not say something encouraging to someone and not be willing to offer help along with it. That's why I am involved on a local basis with hurting people. It's my duty. Have you looked for help from your local non-denominational church? There are some really truly good people in good churches out there that will help you and walk alongside of you. The worst thing you can do right now is to isolate yourself. The only way you're going to start feeling better and getting whole again is by forcing yourself to get up and go. Go to a church on a Sunday... somewhere fairly small where people will notice you and reach out to you. You can trust them. They will legitimately care about your well-being. Look into the Vineyard churches. What city are you in? Maybe I know a good church in your area. Please don't write off getting help from church. You don't have to have decided what you believe about God to go to church. Just go. I noticed in one of your last posts you mentioned that you are at the end emotionally, mentally, physically, and financially (I think those were the items you listed). I noticed that you didn't say spiritually. God will sometimes let us hit rock bottom so that we will hopefully turn to him for help. That's what happened to me. My marriage was a disaster. My husband was out at night drinking with women. It was very hurtful and degrading and affected my self-image even today. I was so desperate for help. One day I said "God if you are there, please tell me what to do." It wasn't immediately, but within a couple of weeks I had an encounter with God that changed my life forever. I used to say I was sitting on the sidelines watching the parade of life to by. I had no life. I was alone and hurting. No family around. No friends. No husband. Two small children and lonely, hurt, and depressed. It began to make me mentally ill being alone all the time. God turned all that around for me. It's because of his love for me that I am still alive today because I, like you, wanted to kill myself to end my unbearable pain. Most people don't understand that kind of pain and they think you have a problem if you are suicidal. They don't understand that from our perspective suicide = pain relief. I understand. And I'm hear to declare today that you will no longer be called deadinside but instead aliveinside. And I know God will accomplish this in your life. I am still living from paycheck to paycheck (which I know is better than you're doing right now) so I can't offer you any financial help right now. I hope you don't hold that against me. But I'm going to back my words of encouragement up by prayer for you. God is real. God hears prayer. God answers prayer. God changes peoples lives DRASTICALLY. People like YOU. Put your hope where you haven't put it before. My favorite Bible verse is found in the old testament: He lifted me up out of the pit and placed my feet on solid ground and put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to my God. The song in your mouth right now is a dead song, from the pit of hell. God will give you a new song, a song of life. You haven't even begun to live yet, sister. You are a beautiful woman with a lot of potential and God finds value in your life. I will pray for you. ~ Lora
Wow, deadinside, that makes me sick, too. You can't really trust anyone online even if they sound legitimate. I'm learning that the biggest scammers know how NOT to sound like a scammer. Be careful people!
I am curious about your screenname (haven't visited your page yet). What does that mean, deadinside?
Raise Money via Fundraising
Hi Baby Ziggies,
I'm sorry things are so hard for you right now. I know going through a divorce makes everything else more difficult, too. Check out www.divorcecare.org. It's a great divorce support program. I went through it twice and found it very helpful in teaching me how to cope with the divorce and get back on my feet. They have a session on finance, too.
God's best to you,
I am a single mom of 3. After my divorce, I needed to find a way to earn an income. I really didn't want to go back to work after being a stay at home mom for 7 years, so I looked into other ideas for earning money. My sister was a Tupperware consultant at the time and wanted me to start selling Tupperware. I am not a very outgoing person so I didn't want to do home parties. I told her no and kept looking. In the meantime, I helped her part-time with her business. After learning more about the Tupperware consultant business opportunity, I realized it might work for me, too. But I wanted to focus on internet sales and fundraising. I discovered that I was able to make a nice supplemental income with Tupperware fundraising by helping schools and nonprofit groups utilize Tupperware's fundraiser to raise money. It is very rewarding to know I have helped schools, churches, cheerleading groups, relay for life teams, and other non-profit groups raise much-needed money.
Aside from Tupperware, I also do Tastefully Simple, AromaLight Candles, Avon, and some other work-from-home sales. These direct sales companies are such a blessing to single moms who need to work but have young children at home. I am home every single day! I wouldn't have it any other way.
I can set up a fundraiser for you if you need to raise money. You can pass out your catalogs and take orders and earn 40% of whatever you sell. It's easy!
I believe that God wants us to be smart with our time and our resources. Sometimes he doesn't use a miracle to help us -- most of the time he shows us how to find help. He expects us to help one another. Just look at all the starving kids in the world and you can see that God expects US to help one another. He isn't going to bail us out of our bad situation. He loves us, but he has given us everything we need to make it here on planet earth. And, of course, I can't help but also mention he has given us everything we need to make it in eternity, too. =) Do you know that?
I want to encourage you to take the initiative like I did and get something going for yourself. Lift your head up and be positive about your life -- regardless of how low things seem now. I was very depressed after my divorce, nearly suicidal. I had no hope for my life and saw no way out. I was afraid I would not make it financially and sometimes I still am. But I have never missed paying a bill in 7 years and I own my own home now. You can do the same, too. Let's talk. I'll be happy to help you figure out how you can make some money. You may never be wealthy (but then again, maybe you will!) but you can be living comfortably and supporting yourself. We live in a country full of opportunity for women. There's no reason why you can't make it, too.
If you are interested in working from home, you need to contact me. I can help you. I promise you'll make money.
Best wishes to you and thanks for reading my profile.
