‘Live within your means to withstand economic hardship’

 Aware that women have the in­clination to spend their meagre resources on irrelevant things, the Co-founder of the Delta Link University, Mrs. Ingrid Ansah, has urged Ghana­ian Women to learn to manage their finances in order to withstand the cur­rent economic crisis that the country was battling with.

According to her, “women spend un­necessarily on clothing and shoes which they already have in abundance.”

“The days of fashion are over,” she said, and added that one could be practical and fashionable at the same time without spending so much to incur debt.

Mrs. Ansah said this at the Inter­national Women’s Day of Prayer of the Women’s Ministry Department of the New Life Seventh-Day Adventist (S.D.A)Church at Koforidua at the weekend on the theme:” Transformed By Prayer.“

She said there was no need for women to have many clothes, and indicated that: “You can wear one cloth today and then decide to wear it again in six months time.”

Mrs Ansah said times were hard for everyone and that women needed to manage the little they had in a way that would bring glory to God.

She advised women to train their children in the proper way so that they would under­stand the difficult times and the kind of society they were born into.

“There is the need for children to understand what their parents can afford and make good use of it. Let us try to be self-disciplined and live within our means to be able to survive these difficult times,” she said.

Mrs. Ansah urged the women to encourage one another, comfort them­selves with the word of God and inten­sify their prayer lives, since it would help them to avoid stress which was one of the silent killers in the world.

“ Prayer can transform and change the situation that we might be fac­ing, it brings us forgiveness, cleanses and grants us eternal life. Sometimes God puts us to test to strengthen and increase our faith in Him,” she said.

The Women’s Ministry Local Leader of the New Life S.D.A Church, Mrs. Rosina Agyei, said that the church chose March and June to pray for women, the youth and individuals in the church and the nation at large.

She advised Christians to make prayer their habit since it has the power to transform lives.

The New Life S.D.A Church Pastor, Nana Afari-Dadzie, encouraged the women to continually seek the face of the Lord in prayer and wait patiently on Him.
