How Much Money Did I Earn in June?

30 Jun

Total Earnings for June?

$2,295

This was my total amount for writing, social media and virtual assisting.

100% of this came from private clients from my business Jess Lee Writing Studio.

This week…

One client stopped needing work abruptly.

I picked up one client.

So, hopefully next week it will all balance out?

eBook Done!

30 Jun

I am very excited to announce that the first draft of my first eBook is done. I took me about 1.5 weeks to write a little over 5,000 words. I did this on top of my regular workload and while I was vacationing in California with my friends from college.

What do I hope to get out of this eBook?

Well, I wanted to be able to say I have finished an eBook. I think it’s important to write for yourself when you live and work as a writer. I can just feel the accomplishment already. πŸ™‚

I also plan on writing more eBooks. This first one was kind of a test to see how I did with it. I wanted to make sure it was something I wanted to branch out into and spend time on.

What’s the eBook about?

The eBook is basically about my journey into debt and how we plan to get out of it…

I do not want to spend the rest of my life always writing for other people! I want to feel that freedom. It’s going to be a long road, I know, but I’m glad that God keeps blessing me with energy to keep doing so.You can actually visit the Facebook page I created for it, so you can stay up to date on when the copy will finally be released. Just visit One Mom’s Memoir: The Truth Behind Debt & Student Loans-eBook. It’s not letting me link to it. So just copy and paste that into your search bar on Facebook!

Thanks for reading and following, it’s been a pleasure πŸ™‚

Tithing–

29 Jun

Ugh! I just had a really awesome post on tithing…but of course it disappears. Basically, I was trying to say that God is really working on my heart when it comes to tithing. I also wanted to say thank you to a God who blesses and provides, even when I doubt, over and over again! Praise the Lord.

Instead of running my mouth about tithing, I will just post some scripture πŸ™‚

2 Chr 31:5

q The Israelites generously gave the firstfruits of their grain, new wine, oil and honey and all that the fields produced. They brought a great amount, a tithe of everything.

Malachi 3:10

New International Version (NIV)

10Β Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, β€œand see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

2 Corinthians 9:7-

Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Do you see that God is not angerly telling us to tithe, like the government demands us to pay taxes. Tithing is an act of worship. God does not need our money. The amount of money you choose to give is between you and God.
