I feel extremely blessed to be where I am. The church I pastor is very generous to me, which practically means that I’m in a position financial where I have not needed to seek secular employment as many other pastors of small churches are forced to do.
However (cue the violin), I do have a family (a wife and three kids to be precise). And kids are expensive! So even though I don’t feel like I need to get a real job (because we pastors just work on Sundays and Wednesdays, right?), we do have to cut costs as much as possible and forego many of the luxuries that the average American family takes advantage of (like a burger out from time to time). Usually these things are no big deal for us, we’re used to it. But from time to time, we wish we could afford those things we usually can’t afford.
So part of this blog is about generating a little extra income for us. I sell space on my site to advertisers and review products that are related to my role as a pastor. To comply with FTC law, then, I’ve got to say this:
Chris Huff is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
My goal in this is not merely to make a buck, though. The idea is also that I would point my readers to products that I’ve found useful, which may also be useful to them. I’m not going to give good reviews to products I would not actually endorse anyway. That would be unethical (and I’m a pastor, remember?).
