The Blessings Of Not Paying Tithes

When I used to tithe and pay church offerings, I was always broke.

Why I Thank God My Children Were Not Born In Africa

No disrespect, but had my 6 children been born in Africa I would have spent most of my time fighting their school teachers than being a mother.
