Cheryle M. Touchton lost her $200K executive position when the dot.com bubble burst. Now her husband’s severance pay is being depleted as they try to sell their second home and make repairs from tropical storm damage.

But the director of Pocket Full of Change Ministries, refuses to whine. Instead she provides a helpful and hopeful article: “The Secret To Surviving the Economy.”

Touchton draws heavily on God’s promise from Jeremiah 29:11-12: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Although she doesn’t mention it, that Scripture was given to the Hebrews before they were taken into Babylonian captivity! Not a good time economically.)

Meanwhile, my friend, Keith Drury has a prophetic look at what Christians can anticipate during months and years to come: What Will Happen in the Church If We Experience a Deep Recession (or Mild Depression) and What a Severe Recession Means to Boomer Pastors.

And you can’t go wrong with what Jesus said about tough economic times.
