We all know teachers make squat, right? Oh sure, we know all the platitudes:
- We do it because we love children…
- Nobody signs up to become a teacher to get rich…
- In the end, it isn’t about what you make, but the difference you make…
Hand me the vomit bag, please.
Teachers didn’t take a vow of poverty and, no matter your profession, you didn’t either.
So how do you get ahead in times like these when the average family’s pay doesn’t quite stretch to cover the bills and essentials?
That is exactly the subject of teacher Danny Kofke’s latest book (linked to Amazon):
THE WEALTHY TEACHER: LESSONS FOR PROSPERING ON A SCHOOL TEACHER’S SALARY, Danny Kofke. Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing, Deadwood, Oregon. 2018. 165 pages.
I wish I would have found this book at the start of my career, but it’s never too late. And you don’t have to be a teacher to use the wisdom in this book to help your own family get ahead and find financial security. This is the message of Kofke’s wonderful new book.
Imagine, a WEALTHY TEACHER–one who earned and saved his way to wealth, instead of inheriting it. Wow. If he can do it, so can we. No matter how old we are.
It’s never too late to become a real graduate of financial literacy. Danny outlines 12 grades of achieving just that in a step-by-step manner. (Some, I’ve already done as a middle-aged, responsible person, but some I really need to get on–how about you?)
A teacher himself, Kofke is a self-made millionaire. Well, kind of self-made. He had some guidance from the Bible along the way, and you can do the same.
Among other things, Danny demonstrates how to raise a family of four on one teacher’s salary; how to create and stick to a budget; how to create a fund for emergencies and why it it imperative to do so; how to pay off all your debt–even your mortgage; and, how to pay yourself even in these trying times.
Danny isn’t some Wall Street hotshot–he’s a humble special ed teacher in Georgia, married, and with two children. If he can do it, so can we. This book is well worth a read! I’m making my husband read it now–and the only thing he usually reads is my blog posts and internet news. It’s that important.
Now that your finances are getting straight, how’s your relationship with the Provider of all your needs? Yeah, I’m talking about God.
Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider has penned a new book on tuning in to the power and presence of God in your life (title linked to Amazon):
EXPERIENCING THE SUPERNATURAL: HOW TO SATURATE YOUR LIFE WITH THE POWER AND PRESENCE OF GOD by Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider, Baker Publishing Group, Minneapolis, MN, 2017. 171 pages.
Remember when Joy Behar (The View) derided Vice President Mike Pence for saying God talked to him? It was hot news earlier this year with many Christians rising up to challenge ABC/Disney and its advertisers to cease and desist their persecution of Christians.
It got me to thinking, in what way does God talk to us? As a life-long Christian, I know a partial answer to that question, but I wanted to know more.
So when I saw Rabbi Schneider on my favorite show, THE 700 CLUB, I knew I wanted to read his new book.
And I LOVED it! Rabbi Schneider’s book is just the thing for you if you’re craving a closer relationship and informed two-way communication with God.
Sounds crazy, right? Not really. The Bible is full of examples of God talking to his servants–yeah, that’s us…made in His image. Why wouldn’t he want to talk to us when he created us?
The entire book is an exciting Bible study that IS NOT New Age. God talks to us through His word, the Bible, as well via other means–if you’re aware of them.
Rabbi Schneider will educate you on developing a supernatural mindset; how the Jews are key to His plans; becoming Spirit-Conscious (as in HOLY SPIRIT); being open to signs, wonders and miracles (and yes, they still occur); what the deal is with prophecy, dreams and visions–including revelation through pictures; as well as supernatural healing (God is the great Physician, friends); and so much more.
God speaks to us through whatever circumstances we find ourselves mired in, pleasurable or painful.
C.S. Lewis wrote IN THE PROBLEM OF PAIN, “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
God is speaking. If you need Miracle Ear to hear Him, this book will be a good fit.
