I am excited to announce a new monthly feature on Joyfully Thriving. Welcome to “Meet a Frugal Lutheran!”
One of the reasons that I write this website is to be an encouragement to others in their frugal journey. I started this website (years ago) because I knew I had a unique perspective on frugality as a Lutheran school teacher.
Lutherans are a frugal bunch – whether we’ve grown up in church work or not. Whether we serve in church worker or in another vocation, we all have frugality ingrained in us. Lutherans know the art of hospitality and we know how to stretch every penny. Lutherans are rooted in our frugal heritage.
I am the daughter of a Lutheran pastor and his Lutheran teacher wife. I am the granddaughter of Lutheran pastors and their wives – on both sides of my family. I have been raised by generations of frugal Lutherans and am who I am because of them.
There is much to learn from others. My perspective on frugality is only one perspective. As part of Joyfully Thriving, I would like to introduce you to other frugal Lutherans. I would like us to travel to different parts of the country (and hopefully world) to learn what we can from others.
Of course, one doesn’t have to be Lutheran to be frugal! Whether you’re Lutheran or not, I hope that you will continue to learn from and be encouraged by the frugal stories I share.
It is my hope and prayer that we can share our frugality just as we share our faith.
I’ll begin the series officially next week. I have several interviews with wonderful frugal Lutherans lined up already. If you are interested in being part of these series, please email me at joyfullythriving (at) gmail (dot) com. I’d love to feature a wide variety of frugal Lutherans.
Are you as excited as I am? I hope so! Let’s meet some frugal Lutherans!
