Some of My Amazing Christian Wisdom!!!

You may have noticed the ads added to my blog.

What's that? You didn't actually notice?

Well I will tell you about them anyway.

The Lord has laid it on our hearts to monetize this blog. My husband, TBK (that's the BURGER KING for those of you who are new followers) and I have prayed about this constantly and we believe that God told us to put ads on my blog.

Now, MY very first thought was "this is great! Now I can donate all the proceeds from my blog to charities my husband and I are passionate about!" But Jesus had other plans. You see, TBK and I have a direct line to God and he talks to us very clearly. He convicted us to use the proceeds from my blog NOT for charity, but for ourselves.

I know what you're thinking because I thought the same thing: what???

Wouldn't God prefer we use the proceeds from this blog for charity as we originally discussed? Why in the world would God want us to squander the ad money on huge houses, gas guzzling cars, shabby-chic furniture and turquoise paint? Oh and tons of Chipotle? (God was very clear that we must eat Chipotle a minimum of eight times a week).

My answer is that we don't always HAVE all the answers. Only GOD has all the answers, and they may not be clear to us in this life. That's what it means to be a Christian though - do what God tells you to do no matter how insane it seems. For example, do you remember When God told Abraham to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice? That story was completely literal, and Abraham OBEYED God without question. Then at the last second God said "Oh Abraham, I was totally kidding, don't actually burn your child alive!"and God and Abraham sat down and had a good laugh over the whole thing. Then God bought Abraham a fancy new camera and sent him on a cruise. (Or something like that).

My husband and I have decided, no matter how hard it is for us to accept, that we must follow the example of Abraham in the Bible and sacrifice our children spend tons of money on ourselves. As a Christian, there really is no other choice. What do you think about our decision?


  1. You are such an inspiration in the way that you follow the lord's plans even when they are not the same as your own.

    How wonderful you sacrifice giving to others in order to keep it all for yourselves all in the name of the Lord.

    As this is your blog will you be sharing your proceeds with TBK?

  2. Seriously, me?!?!!? w00t!

    love again, CEJ

  3. I will NOT be sharing my proceeds with TBK, which is a pity for him because he has several outstanding tickets to pay. However, he needs to earn that money himself (even though my money is his money because we're married and I submit to him). Does that make sense?

  4. Burger Queen, I LOVE the way you use italics to EMphasize your points! It's so clever and cute! I love you so much! XOXOX

  5. Thanks Anon! I love your heart for Jesus!

  6. I am HONORED to be able to ahare the world wide web with a star such as yourself.

    Have you thought about donating ad proceeds to the "Chipolte for Reading" program or something along those lines?

    Of course Jesus is taking your hand and telling you where the $ should be going. Will you be doing a financial seminar with TBK soon? I'm on pins and needles!!!!!

  7. My knees are dirty from being on them in prayer thanking the Lord I can have you as part of my lfe. I adore you, you are sent from God to teach us how to scam people and lie. I look forward to your next FOF, you are SUCH an inspiration!




    (aside: I don't feel even the slightest bit ridiculous worshipping you! Nope! Not me!)

  9. CEJ was too shy to ask, but is wondering if she can babysit the BQ brood anytime soon? She promised me she would wear her orange striped scarf.

  10. Oh, I bet God is telling you to take a cruise too! Don't you think? I mean I will definitely go! I'll even pay your way because you are so awesome.
