Welcome to Living on a Prayer, a frugal living lifestyle website by Angela – a 40-something New Zealander attempting to live a large life in a small town.

Join Angela – a reformed spend-thrift – and her family as they adjust to living on a minister’s salary, after Angela’s husband ‘Mr G’ decided to chuck in his IT job to work for God.  They may quite literally end up living on a prayer.

Angela has a background in criminology, psychology and working with vulnerable people, and is currently a stay-at-home parent of E (5) and D (3.5).  Angela writes devotionals and studies for home groups; and is passionate about facilitating workshops and retreats.  In her downtime, Angela  is usually to be found curled up on the couch reading a murder mystery.
