It is Better to Give than Receive: 31 Scriptures on Giving

It is Better to Give than Receive: 31 Scriptures on Giving

As I type this morning, a cool breeze dances through an open window, and a cerulean sky beckons me outdoors. Beautiful days like this fill my soul with peace and gratitude and make me excited for Thanksgiving which we will celebrate very soon.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. My heart holds wonderful memories of family gatherings, enough food for a small country, and playing hide-and-seek with cousins. Though for many of us the holidays stir good memories and excitement about gathering with friends and family, the Lord nudged me today with the reminder of those in need, those grieving during Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the many sitting alone at home.

Analysis: The Key Ingredients of Modern Farming – Soil, Rain, and Broadband

The state of broadband in America’s farmlands is a mixture of the good, the bad, and the apprehensive.

The good: successes and advancements brought on by broadband and various digital technologies.

The bad: many farms still have to rely on pitifully weak technologies such as satellite and DSL.

The cloud of apprehension: we spend $6 billion in broadband grants yearly with surprisingly little to show for it, and yet we’re ready to do it again next year.

Is Mexican Exchange Bitso Behind El Salvador’s Chivo Wallet?

The mystery of the Chivo wallet persists. And Bitso comes into the picture as part of a more credible report confirmed through official channels. It seems like NewsBTC was right to doubt Forbes’s article about BitGo being behind the Chivo wallet.  This Reuters report, on the other hand, comes with specific information and quotes confirming the news.

How To Train For A Half Marathon

I’ve been running for 20+ years, have run over 50 races and half marathons may be my favorite distance to race. They’re challenging, but they don’t take over your life the way marathon training can. I also like that I can push harder in a half marathon since I don’t have to run as long. I’ve been able to see big improvements in my half marathon time, cutting over 30 minutes off my PR over the years.

Another thing I love about half marathons is that even beginners can do them. In fact, my first-ever race was a half marathon, over 17 years ago! And my husband’s first-ever race was a half marathon too, just a few years ago.

Post Pandemic Travel

Collaborative Post 

With more and more adults now being vaccinated in the UK, many people are beginning to look ahead to travelling further afield for the first time post-pandemic. If you are looking into travelling abroad this year or next, and are apprehensive, these are some aspects to consider before booking that flight.

Government Guidelines

With guidance and restrictions changing all the time, one of the most important things to consider before booking anything is what the current Government rules are for travel to the country you are looking into visiting. The recent traffic light system will show you quickly and easily what the rules are for your chosen destination, when travelling from the UK, but it is also important to check the rules in that country too. For example, at the time of writing this post, New Zealand is on the UK Green list, but they have not opened their borders up for the UK, so you wouldn’t be able to travel there.

6 things no one tells you about US taxes as an expat

For the longest time, there was no word I feared more than the word “taxes.” Even now, it gives me a bit of a shiver.

As an American, understanding our tax system is a pain; there’s no denying it. As an American expat living and working abroad for a decade, who runs two businesses across multiple continents, it’s like facing Pandora’s box: it’s much easier to stick your head in the sand and ignore it for as long as possible. Shivers. At least, that was my strategy for a long time. Can you relate?

Luckily, I’ve learned the immense value of outsourcing to experts, thus relieving myself of the stress, anxiety, and total head trip that coincides with the US tax season. MyExpatTaxes makes filing US taxes as an expat easy, simple, and CHEAP. OMG, sign me up, stat!
