Last night I shared the story of Ms. Oseola McCarty w/ the youth group.  If you don’t know her story you are missing out.  Click here to read about her or here if you prefer the video version.

A few quotes from her:

  • On work: “I knew there were people who didn’t have to work as hard as I did, but it didn’t make me feel sad. I loved to work, and when you love to do anything, those things don’t bother you.”
  • On saving money: “A smart person plans for the future. You never know what kind of emergency will come up, and you can’t rely on the government to meet all your needs. You have to take responsibility for yourself.”
  • On good living: “There’s a lot of talk about self-esteem these days. It seems pretty basic to me. If you want to feel proud of yourself, you’ve got to do things you can be proud of. Feelings follow actions.”

You can learn more from Ms. McCarty by reading The Riches of Oseola McCarty and Simple Living for Rich Living.
