There is a saying that actions speak louder than words. I feel that words are just as powerful as actions when you notice a pattern in what is said. I believe that this is especially true when Christians are trying to lead others to Christ. The question is, how do I show that I love God? One of the ways is to show that you have love for God’s creation.
There are many task management systems out there to manage your to-do lists. You could use David Allen’s Getting Things Done for example, but I have found that Getting Things Done is over complicated for entry level workers, and people who do a lot of work as it shows up. That is why I love combining GTD with the Bullet Journal system by Ryder Carrol. The Bullet Journal is an effective and easy task management system.
This week I have been thinking about small inexpensive ways to make our bathroom a more pleasant place for Mark and myself. The number one clutter factor in our bathroom are Andrew’s bath toys. I realized the first inexpensive thing I could do to make our bathroom a more relaxing place was to find a bath toy storage solution.
On 2 August 2016 at 6:27am my daughter, Brynn Lenya Letley, was born at the National Hospital Bloemfontein. This experience was so different from the birth experience I had with my first born at the same hospital. Continue reading “Maternity at National Hospital Bloemfontein”
A few months ago I joined a book club here in my hometown. The latest book that we read was Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. Here is my review on the book.
I thought I would take a moment to share with you the Facebook announcement Mark and I made for our second child. Not only did we mention the due date, but we also did a gender reveal.
While Mark and I had a lot of fun with our first baby announcement, coming up with a second baby announcement was a little more difficult. Especially since Andrew doesn’t quite grasp what is going on yet!
So how did we do it?
Wow, it has been so long since I did a blog update. There have been so many ups and downs, so much news and so many hundreds of things going on since I last wrote anything on my blog. I am so sorry for my long absence. I’m going to try and give you as decent an update as possible. This won’t be in any order, just as soon as stuff pops into my head. So here I go.

In my last article, I explained how to use a Cash Receipts Journal to collect transactions together before posting them to the General Ledger. Since the purpose of a subsidiary journal is to summarize similar transactions in order to decrease the number of entries in the general ledger, this article will discuss how to post the totals of the Cash Receipts Journal to the General Ledger.
Posting the Cash Receipts Journal to the General Ledger is Lesson 11 in the Authentically Ash Basic Bookkeeping Course.
There are two types of transactions that take place on a frequent basis in a business or household, namely cash receipts and cash payments. We make use of two subsidiary books to summarize these cash transaction before entering them into the general ledger. The two subsidiary books are called the Cash Receipts Journal and the Cash Payments Journal. It stands to reason that the Cash Receipts Journal is used to summarize all the Cash Receipts of the business/household and the Cash Payments Journal is used to summarize all the Cash Payments of the business/household.
How to use a Cash Receipts Journal is lesson 10 in the Authentically Ash Online Bookkeeping Course. Please note that the $ sign below is a representation of money and not any specific currency.
In the past few lessons, I discussed the basic principles of handling transactions. With these basic principles, you will be able to manage the bookkeeping of your household or micro business. Over the next few lessons I am going to show you how to use proper ledger paper in your General Journal. I am also going to explain cash journals, posting transactions from the cash journal to the general ledger, balancing a general ledger and preparing a Trial Balance. Obviously these topics are quite vast, so I will be covering them over a number of articles.
Ledger Paper and Subsidiary Journals is Lesson 9 in the Authentically Ash Basic Bookkeeping Course. In this lesson I will explain how to use ledger paper in your General Journal. I will also explain what subsidiary journals are. At the end of this article you will find a free ledger paper template that you can download as a PDF.
