Recently I had prayers answered for increase in my work with a new job offer. I will be transitioning from a part time contractor in a field I’m less than thrilled about to a full time job in place that I love. For several months now this has become a stress on my family and we are happy for this opportunity. I could have let this situation get me down but through it all I tried to consistently set myself for success with everything else I was doing. I encourage all PAX to keep this positive mental attitude during times of struggle. To me, this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to walk around with a smile on your face all the time, but take care of your business with the mindset that what you are doing is setting yourself up for a positive outcome.


More coupons = more fun!
