EMPOWERING FAMILIES TO MOVE BEYOND GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE AND INTO THEIR FULL GOD-GIVEN POTENTIAL.
My name is Tiffany Thompson and I am, for the first time in a long while, happy with where I am and where I am headed! Joining Ripple of One has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Before Ripple of One, my transportation was unreliable and my income was average at best. I did not have the ability to pay my bills on time and I felt depressed-- as I borrowed money every month. Not to mention, my checking account was consistently over drafted.
The worst part was not being able to buy my kids what they wanted as I was always focused on not having enough for what they needed. I felt like I was drowning. Intuitively I knew this was not the life God had intended for my children and I. All of this is possible because of my Ripple of One mentor team. They have surrounded me with the knowledge and support to move forward with my finances especially. I was never on a budget before Ripple of One. The first two months with my financial coach seemed overwhelming and confusing, to say the very least. I did not meet my budget at first but over time, I have reached my budget every month and meticulously keep every receipt for every penny spent! My life doesn’t feel chaotic anymore! I am now focused, organized and in control.
The confidence my kids and I have gained from the stability of being a part of Ripple of One family has strengthened US as a family. My kids, Jayden and Jada, attend the Lil'ripplers class and have learned how to earn money through good behavior and grades - they genuinely love the program! They’re actually excited about saving their own money and they comment on the positive changes they have seen in me. They tell me they can see that I am happier now.
I would highly encourage parents & families who are struggling to reach out to Ripple of One. Don’t give up, stay positive and keep pushing forward because the sky is the limit. I am so happy to be in this program and I love that positive and loving people surround me! I love the person I am now and the changes I have made with the help and support of Ripple of One.
