A moment to say thanks...

Wow...I know there are few times in my life when I have been speechless, but today is one of them. I am truly humbled by the outpouring we received at the Coupon Class today that was hosted by the Mercer County Republican Women's Club and that was held at Southside Christian Church. I know that God was in control and it excites me that I was able to play a small role in bringing so many great people together to learn about ways that we can save, give, and be thrifty with the money God has given our families. Our estimate was that there were close to 200 people at this class. That is AMAZING!! The picture above doesn't do it justice. We had 2 other over flow rooms that were full and had some people along the back wall. I guess I didn't comprehend the amount of people until I saw this picture....

I was told that we had people parking to the road and in the grass! If you attended the class today...thank you! I hope that you were able to learn and be inspired to go out there and save big money each week. I loved the enthusiasm of the group and the great questions that were asked even after the class was over. Welcome to my blog if you are new here! Please feel free to use the link to the right of this post to "like" us on Facebook. We have some great questions and discussions on Facebook and we celebrate great shopping trips together there as well!

This event could not have been made possible without the help of MANY people. I am going to do my best to thank you all individually and I pray that I don't leave anyone out! I want YOU to know what a blessing you are to me and to everyone who was able to attend this class today :)
