I loved being a stay-at-home mom, but it also meant that we were very careful about how we used our money and our family didn’t seem complete yet with only one child. The idea that there was a connection between my thoughts and what was happening in my world had never really penetrated my line of reasoning. Over the next forty years, I learned a great deal about how the mind works: how our thoughts and deepest feelings come together to produce the experiences we have. I’ve taught many classes dealing with prosperity and financial freedom…[and learned that] to be free of fear is to experience true abundance and prosperity.
