I’ve been struggling with the ideals I founded in Encourage Hope.  I started this organization with the idea of sharing education, so others would find financial peace, and then use their education and savings to help others.

I’ve changed a lot over the last five years. I’ve lost my parents, I’ve watched my son struggle with depression, I continue to deal with bell’s palsy, and as my children grow, my role as a mama has changed, too.  But, the one thing that has remained constant, and burns stronger every day, is my mission of encouraging hope.

Coupons, however, aren’t as big in my life as they used to be.  Although I love a great deal, I don’t have the passion I used to have for combining sales with coupons … Truth be told, I’m ready to be known as someone much greater than just the coupon lady.

“Part of being a winner is knowing when enough is enough. Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away, and move on to something that’s more productive.” – Donald Trump

Please understand I am not giving up Encourage Hope, as a whole.  But, I am going to move it in the direction of outreach, and focus on what we can do to help others.  One of the beautiful things our organization does is bring together couponers and non-couponers for the greater cause.

Our facebook page will remain the same, and will offer some great deals, outreach information, and inspirational quotes as we work towards providing for others.  Please find us, and like us at http://facebook.com/retirewithcoupons.

As I work to move forward, please know I will still be in touch via a newsletter.  Although there will be obvious changes, you’ll begin to see other parts of my company – divisions I’ve always worked on in the background – coming to light, and I’m so very excited to begin sharing the big picture with all of you!  Visit http://encouragehope.org/newsletter/ to make sure you’ll receive updates!

Thank you for your continued support!
