Hello, I could use some advice. First of all, my husband is co-founder of a ministry. It's really small right now and he is looking to find some government grants so we can find a bigger church and get some programs started to help the homeless, and young people who are at risk. Adam, who is the founder, also has ties to the immigrant community. Do you have any idea how I can get the word out so that people can donate or I can find grants to help out the ministry? I have been praying to the Lord to point me in the right direction so the church can grow.
Secondly, Mark was married for twelve years before his wife died during surgery. He and his late wife had a daughter, Ashlann. She has spent the last eight years with just her and her father. So, I can understand she'd need some adjusting time to me and to her father being married. I've tried to give her her space, but she kind of tries to pick fights with me and wants me angry with Mark. You see, we're kind of in a financial pinch right now, so I am going to try to get a job (I've applied a lot of places). Ashlann likes to have stuff bought for her, A LOT and I mean expensive stuff. Mark asked her to get a job and she flipped out. You see, she uses the whole "Well, you'd do it for Laura (that's me)" thing or "You treat me different since you've been with Laura" thing. She also sleep all the time! I'm talking like fifteen hours! She's bi-polar, but still I feel she needs to do a little something and I don't like how she wants to put me in the middle. Advice?
