WHO'S BEHIND YOUJUSTGAVE.COM?
I’M MENDY LANDRETH, THE FOUNDER OF YOUJUSTGAVE.com.
I love researching interesting, relevant and sometimes controversial topics in hopes of sharing that insightful info to benefit other people. I thrive on learning and enjoy experiencing epiphanies. When I learn something new and useful, I think, “I wish I could pass this on to everyone!”
The combination of being a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, wife of over 18 years, a mother and a passionate follower of Jesus has given me a unique perspective on life. My undergraduate degree in Child Development and Family Studies and my Master of Education Degree in Counseling have greatly influenced my point of view too.
I’ve also endured numerous health issues, including type 1 diabetes, asthma, allergies, food intolerances, depression and anxiety, parasites, gallbladder issues, mercury and arsenic poisoning, chronic fatigue, and latent tuberculosis, just to name a few. Out of desperation and a never-ending quest for good health, I've spent countless hours researching effective treatments and supplements.
Over the years, friends and family have encouraged me to compile and share the info I've gathered on various topics. That challenge has catapulted me into this online endeavor. I'm consolidating what I’ve learned into helpful tidbits and making it easily available to you, for free. The goal is to have trusted experts from various fields offering their wisdom as well on YOUJUSTGAVE.
OUR GOAL IS:
TO OFFER A FRESH PERSPECTIVE THAT WILL CHALLENGE YOUR WORLDVIEW
& TO PROVIDE PRACTICAL INFO THAT WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER &
SAVE YOU TIME, ENERGY & MAYBE EVEN MONEY.
THE INSPIRATION TO GIVE:
Throughout our childhoods and adult lives, my husband and I have given at least 10% of our annual gross income to our local church and charitable causes. During our marriage, we've purposed to increase that percentage even more over time, limiting our spending in order to contribute to honorable organizations and needy people. Our goal is to continue stretching ourselves until we're giving away more of our income than we keep.
It's been an adventurous journey learning to give outside of our comfort zone. And now we're doing that on a larger scale, through this website. We look forward to becoming more generous and hope you'll join us in our attempts to live counter-cultural lives by living within and even below our means.
