Welcome to my little place in the blogging world!  Here is where I like to share ways that we can live our lives as stewards and not consumers.  I believe that we are all given gifts of time, money, and talents, but we are the ones that get to choose how we use these gifts.  Are we going to "consume" and do only things that benefit us and are fleeting?  Or are we going to "steward" these gifts and use them for the greater good of all and invest in things that will last?  I would love to hear about your thoughts, the journey you are on, or what you would like to hear more about!

My name is Marlana and I am married to my best friend.  We live in the midwest and wouldn't have it any other way.  We are youth pastors and love hanging out and mentoring teenagers.  We have always lived in rental homes and are constantly striving to update our budget while enjoying adventures and making our life fun and meaningful.
