Spending money on car repairs often can cause a dent in your budget.
We recently had John David’s truck repaired, the clutch went out and to fix it, the shop had to lift out his transmission which equaled to a bill over $350.
We can still praise God in this situation; this is the first time in 2 1/2 years of marriage that we have had to put one of our vehicles in the shop (and we drive older vehicles).
We also had the money available to cover it; when I started working in October, I started taking out a percentage of my earnings for a car savings account because our vehicles are getting older and our monthly budget cannot handle unexpected car repairs. The money in the car savings fund covered most of the bill and the remaining balance we were able to cover from our checking account. God is so good and faithful and blesses us so much!
