Keeping the Kingdom First

My name is Alyssa Francis. This verse inspired my blog:

Your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. ~Matthew 6:32-33

My Mission:

Honor God with my finances.
Encourage and equip others to do the same.
Discover new and creative ways to reduce spending in order to increase giving.
Balance this journey with marriage and motherhood.

Who Am I?

A thirty-something wife and mother of four. Two daughters by birth, one son by marriage, and a sweet baby boy born in April of 2009.

Oldest sister of four girls raised by a single mom. California native. Grew up in Hawaii. Somehow ended up in North Texas.

Once a single mom. Former agnostic. A survivor of abuse and addiction.

Forgiven by a great big God. Married to my best friend.

Entrepreneur. Frugalista. Writer. Teacher. Blogger.

Why Should You Read My Blog?

Keeping the Kingdom First is not only my creative outlet, it is my ministry. It is my accountability partner. It is evidence of the fruit in my life. It also allows me the incredible blessing of being a stay-at-home mom.
