Can We Afford a Baby? by Steve Watters

Such a timely read especially upon receiving hospital bill in the mail today but still I trust God and I believe our baby is very much worth it and priceless! Below are some worthwhile quotes…

+ …In the midst of our anxiety about affording a child, however, a mentor couple said something we’ll never forget:  “budget for everything except children — children are wealth.”…

+ …Looking at your personal circumstances, you might see challenges that could make the next year a tough time to start a family.  Psalm 139 reminds us, however, that God ordains the days for each person before any of them come to be.  If God has ordained this year as the time for a new child to join your family, you can believe that He is also able to “meet all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).  Whatever your circumstances, you can trust the Creator of life to help you start a family.
