7 Signs Kids’ Sports Have Taken Over Your Life (and Your Budget)

Thoughts taken from an article written by Dave Ramsey

 Here are seven signs your kids’ sports may be overrunning your life—and your wallet. 

  1. The sales guy at Sports World knows you by name.
  2. You haven’t seen your spouse all weekend.
  3. Your diet consists of meat, potatoes, and grease.
  4. Traveling nonstop for travel teams.
  5. Skipping church or family events to attend games.
  6. Stealing from your necessities budget to get the items needed for the sport.
  7. You’re more excited than your kids are about the sport.

Answers in Genesis

Answers is Genesis is a great resource for helping both young and old understand the foundation of all Scripture, Genesis 1-11.  Ken Ham, and his team, have devoted their lives to defending the historical, literal interpretation of Creation, the Flood, the Tower of Babel, and much more!  Did God create everything in seven literal days?  What happened to the dinosaurs?  Where did Cain get his wife?  Where do we get all the different races?  Find these answers and more at the Answers in Genesis website!
