homemade bread for sale?

I sent out over 40 fliers to schools in our area. All at schools that I had a connection with the people who I gave the fliers to. However, i have not had ONE single call about tutoring (although i lowered my price and offered a call before April 15th and get half price on the first two sessions) I know that everyone is worried about finances & so maybe that is why i haven't gotten any calls, or MAYBE its just that God doesn't want me doing that right now..
Ben and i were brainstorming ideas of ways i could "work but not work" from home. My mom makes delisious and famous sour dough bread from scratch & i thought of getting her recipe, the gross growing fermented stuff to put in my fridge and giving it a try. I would bake off once a week and try to sell 6 loaves a week at $5 a loaf which comes out to $120 a month..HELPFUL!! I thought about making "rounds" to the schools in the area, to sell in the teacher's lounge, the board of education, and maybe even a hometown restarant on the square-to market it for sale by the loaf there...
Any thoughts, suggestions or name ideas are greatly appreciated!!!!!!

Okay dear friends. I have personal testimony of the goodness of God when you pray for your husband..Ben has truly been encouraged and motivated by what God has done. He may not even realize the fruit of the prayers completely, but there is an obvious uplifting.

I hope that you guys are using this guide and that it is helpful. it seems like anytime i put something spiritual on my blog not many people comment..anyway, I hope this encourages all of your husbands!

16 Pray that your husband will choose healthy, God-honoring activities. Pray that he will not live in bondage to any questionable habits or hobbies, but that he will experience freedom in holiness as he yields to the Spirit’s control.  (1 Cor. 6:12, 10:31; 2 Tim. 2:4)


17 Pray that your husband will enjoy his manliness as he patterns his life after Christ and strong men in the faith. Pray for his physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual strength.  (Eph. 3:16; 1 Peter 2:21; 1 Cor. 10:11)


18 Pray that your husband will have an eternal perspective—living in light of eternity. Pray that he will reject materialism and temporal values and put God first in his life.  (Matt. 6:33; Deut. 6:5; Eph. 5:16; Ps. 90:12) 


19 Pray that your husband will be patient and a man of peace. Pray that he will not give in to anger, but will allow the Holy Spirit to control his responses.  (Rom. 14:19; Ps. 34:14) 


20 Pray that your husband will yield his mind and thoughts to the Lord. Pray that he will not entertain immoral or impure thoughts, and that he will resist the temptation to indulge in pornography.  (Prov. 27:12; 2 Cor. 10:5)
