by Molly from Molly-Mormon.com. Her 2 cents on the message given by Elder Robert D. Hales, Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, during the April 2009 General Conference titled, “Becoming Provident Providers Temporally and Spiritually”

Money we could have used to care for ourselves and others must now be used to pay our debts. What remains is often only enough to meet our most basic physical needs. Living at the subsistence level, we become depressed, our self-worth is affected, and our relationships with family, friends, neighbors, and the Lord are weakened. We do not have the time, energy, or interest to seek spiritual things.
