I am resolved to keep moving forward even though I am tempted to give up, quit or otherwise be very scared and lazy.
I am resolved to post more information to help people with their daily lives.
I am resolved to finally market my self-published tax self-help book this year.
I am resolved to finding a permanent home this year to nest until I really get to go home.
Even though I can’t see the finish line, I will just keep trucken’!

When I think of renewal I think of the earliest seedlings breaking through the soil in spring.
Each sunrise is renewal of everything!

My creative ideas are all mine (well sorta), til I decide to give them away. I do give the glory to God for all I know, see and do. Posted a photo of my Po’ Girl Shines logo that was created with some of my photos. I love doing graphic arts and working with mixed media and fabrics.
Po’ Girl Shines was an idea I got years ago when the economy began to tank and more people began to appreciate living the way I choose to live. Some had to find out the hard way that living in poverty could actually be cool if you put the right spin on it. If you decide that you are not born to be a consumer, but actually want to live.
My poverty is mine, my faith is mine, and my life is mine while I have it. All the photography and art work is mine on this site and pogirlshines.com.
Most of my information on pogirlshines.com came from living sensibly and frugally my entire life. I believe that we should use as little as possible and give as much as we can while we are here in regards to the earth and how we treat one another.
The “ta da” was added because I have been saying this since I was a small child and began putting on performances for my captive audience known as family.
