Do you remember in high school, before cell phones, texting and Snapchat, when you and your girlfriends would call each other on the phone to talk about what you were going to wear to school the next day? I do. Inevitably, the conversation turned into plans for the weekend, who was dating who and the teacher who was giving us the hardest time that week. At that time in my life, Saturday 5:00 Catholic Mass was really just a social event for all of us where we went through the motions of Mass, yet were more concerned about plans for that evening. While I am a Believer, I haven’t attended Mass in decades, but that’s a story for another time.
When Vera asked me to be a contributor to Her Life Counts, I was honored. I absolutely LOVE her mission and knew immediately that God had brought us together for this divine purpose.
Hi! I’m Patty Gale and the founder – owner of Fear.less Girl Financial. As a certified personal finance educator, I help women in their 40’s and older overcome financial struggles and move toward clarity, peace and fear.less abundance.
My biggest passion is seeing women thrive financially, not for the sake of money, but so they have financial clarity and peace to find their true selves; to come out from the burdens of financial chaos and use their talents and gifts to share with the world. That, girlfriend, is hard to do when you’re under the weight of finance burdens.
“Love your neighbor as yourself. – Galatians 5:14 NIV
That’s a powerful verse and it’s found a few more times throughout the Bible too. And I’m betting you have no problem loving others. It’s ‘easy’ to love others.
But how well do you do when it comes to loving yourself?
