Welcome to Day 18 of our 30 day celebration of the 5th Anniversary of
Giving Thanks: The Art of Tithing, by Paula Langguth Ryan – where we’re answering 30 questions about tithing!

Remember Sheila M. whose question I answered on Day 8? Well, she wrote again a few weeks later and had this to say:

Dear Paula,

Thank you for the information on tithing. I felt so overwhelmed by the whole situation. No one said or explained anything to me. And, yes it bothered me, because I am sensitive when it comes to my walk with GOD. Nothing will hinder that walk for me, and I was searching the web and lo and behold, You were there and “thank you God” for Paula Ryan. Thank you so much because it was starting to get to me that I was a thief in God’s house and I started to give up. BUT…I am strong and held on to the faith. I have a job now, it`s part time, But…I know God will send me something better. – Sheila M.

Hi Sheila,

What wonderful news about the job God has provided for you! Whoo hooo!!

Peace and prosperity,

Paula Langguth Ryan
