Getting to Know Me: What I Would do if I Won a Million Dollars?

So for fun, I thought I’d post things that would help you to get to know me better. And what better way them knowing who’d I’d be if I was a million dollars richer!

I saw a YouTube video the other day of someone who gave his friends a bunch of money and they had a limited time to spend it on whatever they wanted. Some things were absolutely absurd, while others were amazingly sweet.

So I started to think about what I would do.

I mean Amazon Prime would have their work cut out for them.

But in all reality, a million dollars is a lot of money. So what would I do?

First, I would pay off my bills. My house. And a few other bills that aren’t horrible, but if they weren’t hanging over my head every month, I think I’d be a happy gal.

And if the money flow stopped there, I think I wouldn’t complain a bit. But obviously, there is a lot more money to spend.

Second thing I would do is make a large payment (let’s just say $100,000) to one of my favorite organizations, Student’s International. SI (Student’s International) is a Christian-based Missions organization with bases in several countries, especially in Central America. I have visited Nicaragua and Dominican Republic. SI allows students (and adults!) to visit these countries, live and work alongside missionaries, eat the food, shop the markets, and immerse yourself in the culture.  It is such a beautiful experience to see how other people live in these poor countries, but to also be impacted on how strong they are.

Third, I’d give $100,000 to my church.

Forth, I’d make sure my boys all had funds to go to college. (My oldest will be heading that way this coming Fall!)

Fifth, I’d make sure my parents had some major bills paid off.

And lastly, I’d make some home improvements. There are a few things I’d like to do to my house that I would be crazy not to do while I had that stack of cash in my possession.

Wow, that was little TOO easy to spend all of that money!

What would you do? How would you spend a large sum of money like that? Do you have one thing that would be an absolute? Do you have an organization that you’d give to? Or would you just get rid of everything and build a dream house on a deserted island (this would be my second option)… 😉

Have an amazing day, and we will see you in my next post!
