The Face of Being Without A Home


Over the years, the face of homelessness has been someone who lives under a bridge, unkempt, wearing layers of clothing, unemployed, using cardboard boxes as shelter, pushing a shopping cart full of items, unproductive citizens of society, seniors, runaways, etc.,  However, these are stereotypes of homelessness.

Some homeless people are college students, high school students, teenagers, church members, church attendees, working citizens of society, who don’t have the privilege, security, or pleasure of having a home. Their own home. A permanent place of dwelling. They are contributing to their life and to society, they just don’t have their own place to live.

For example, I am an entrepreneur, a college student, a blogger, employed, and I do freelance work. I grew up in church and attended church up to now, most of my adult life. I do not have a permanent place of my own to live. All of the things that I listed are contributions to my life and to society.

There are people who live in their vehicle, people who use a restaurant restroom or other restroom to clean up for the day and don’t miss a beat showing up to their job. Homelessness is real. It’s not a financial problem. Although, finances can “help” alleviate homelessness. I have come to learn, realize and understand, that the real source of homelessness is broken relationships”. Yes. “Broken relationships.” 

A whole relationship, would genuinely take in the homeless person and help them to having their own home. But because the relationship is frayed in some way, where the person does not want to be bothered with the homeless person or does not want to have anything to do with the homeless person, or does not want to get involved in a situation of such degree, that homeless person is left out on the street to fend by themselves and for themselves.

Relationships are “gold.” We were not created to be an island to ourselves. If our most important relationships, such as family, friends and church sisters and brothers are not great, we don’t have resources to help us during hard times. Thus, the social system, government assistance, shelters, and the like who try to assist in the place of the “relationships” that should be intact.

I can go further in this from a biblical standpoint. I will just leave two scripture of reference that highlights the importance of “relationships”.

In Ecclesiastes, King Solomon, the richest and wisest biblical person listed outside of God in the bible, who God gave wisdom and riches, stated:

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 KJV

Do you know how wealthy help each other? Through relationships! Through networking! Through recommendations! Through references! Through contacts! Through information! Through referrals!

Yes, money will help! In some instances, how does money get to some or assist some people? Through “relationships.”

As you prayerfully go through life, I urge you to assess your relationships.

How are your relationships?

I thought about how I could keep the glass bottle that my iced coffee came in and use it as a drinking glass.

All it needs is a cute straw! 😃

Personal Finance – Financial Literacy Challenge


I have an avid interest in Personal Finance and have been and currently am seeking to get my own finances in order.

Financial Literacy Month is the month of April.

There’s no better time to start learning about personal finance and getting your personal finances in order than now! Let’s hold each other accountable with a challenge! I know accountable is such a touchy word for some people, if you have any ounce of integrity it means that you actually have to do what is being stated as the terms of accountability.

For this Personal Finance – Financial Literacy Challenge let’s commit to reading Personal Finance books during the month of March and making the necessary changes that we learn about, need to, and are able to do to get our finances in order.

I am currently reading a book entitled, Getting Your Financial Hou$e in Order A Floorplan for Managing Your Money by David and Debbie Bragonier with Kimn S. Gollnick. I checked it out of my local public library on 3/1/2018.

So far it is very enlightening and interesting. I may do a book review when I’m done reading it!

How will we keep each other accountable?

1. Comment on this blog post with the book that you are reading along with the date you checked it out.

2. When you’re done, give the areas where you made changes to your personal finance to bring your finances in order. If the material that you read in the books that you check out is the same material and you have already made changes in the areas, list something that would benefit others to know (i.e. opening an online bank account at an online bank vs. opening an bank account at a local or physical bank.)

3. Give a “brief summary” of the book.

That’s it! There are twenty eight days left in March. Let’s go!

Until Next Time,

Bridget Denise Webb
