Life for anyone caring for small children by themselves can be stressful so some need to splash out and spend money to enjoy respite time as a reward. Others may use money for drugs and substances to try to numb the pain from stress. The interesting fact about this particular true story is she chose to resist temptation to do the right thing. Often any new item bought with hard-earned money seems like duly deserved reward for sacrifices. In this case, Christina Knaak chose to invest beyond entitled self-indulgence to secure a roof over family. This is really a choice encouraging to all working hard to change their lives to better their life first for themselves and their children. With God all things are possible so we can all take a cue from Christina to help bring change into our families to secure the future with the help of God. Well done Christina keep up the good work, although not easy you are doing the right thing to motivate people to have hope. An example to get priority right, parents of small children lead them growing up following adult behaviours and norms.
