Being faithful in giving even when it’s hard

Indigo Manning is in the Army and relocated from Kansas City to Spokane, where the cost of living is higher. With every move her husband, Kerry, has had to find a new job, and this time it paid 60% less income than what the last job had previously. They also had a new baby and were running through their savings. Even in that financial situation, Indigo wanted to remain faithful in giving. She prayed, “God, I’m nervous, ‘the righteous are never forsaken, or beg for bread.’ Malachi’s promise.“ She prayed and gave the tithe, “this is on you God.”

Kerry called two hours later, his paycheck was posted two days early and got a bonus from work—they praised God together!

God was faithful in 2023
