This post is sponsored by Wild Cedar Co. All opinions are mine alone. 🙂

When you’re expecting a baby, the nursery quickly becomes one of your favorite places in your home. It’s a place to prepare for your little one, to decorate, to dream.

How Self-Employment Strengthened My Faith

Self-employment is the dream for many people. “I want to be my own boss,” they say. And that’s a great dream, until work slows down or something stands between them and a job.
