4 Ways to Improve Your Finances

4 Ways to Improve Your Finances 1. Make a decision to trust God completely with your finances. Until you can trust and do everything His word says about your money, you will most like always struggle with a lack of it. 2. Begin to understand Gods position on money and how we as Christians should relate to it. The easiest way to figure out what God has to say about our money is by reading the Bible. I recently narrowed down the 20 verses Christians should know about money and how it relates to every decision we make. Once you

Organizing Your Bills

I must say that my husband and I have a great system for organizing our bills. From the way we used to argue about how to manage the finances I could never have imagined we’d be on the same page using the same system. Early in our marriage I tried all kinds of elaborate systems especially those that included spreadsheets and programs but my husband hated them. He felt they were too time consuming and didn’t like having to boot up the computer every time we needed to manage our finances. As I learned more about his style I came

How to Find Money to Pay Off Debt

We are at the halfway point for our debt freedom journey and I think now is a good time to stop and share some of what helped us find the means to get rid of all of our consumer debt. One of the reason we want to pay off debt is because carrying debt as we get older will prevent us from retiring and living life on our own terms. We have been able to pay off all of our debt except for our mortgage using just my husbands income and extra money we earned here and there. 5 Ways

faith

It takes faith to do a lot of things. Now what type of things am I referring to, you may ask? Drive a car; ride on an airplane, take a test, write a book, and even buy a home and the list goes on and on. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) says “Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. All throughout the Bible, it gives accounts of men and women who used their faith to get the job done. Now some of them may have needed a nudge or two or three, but the job

How to make Financial Decisons Together

Sometimes in marriage we like to do our own thing and do it our way. Right? But God’s design of marriage is set up with a structure and a way to do things in a proper way. When it comes to finances, (this is always a big topic in any marriage) one is usually a spender and one is usually a saver. I believe God gives us balance in our life. This is one of the ways He helps us out, by giving us a spouse with a different perspective than ours. Remember your husband is the head of your

  1 – The fastest way to not have money, is to make money what you need. If more money is what drives you, you will become a slave to it. Ecclesiastes 5:10-12 2 -  Money looks better in your bank account than on your back. Clothes and accessories are for covering your body. Clothes do not define your character and they should not be relied on to define your social status or build your confidence. 3 – Don’t place your hope in your job, paycheck, savings or investments.

20 Verses post header

I might be the only person on earth that struggles with having faith in God’s provision but I doubt it. It’s so easy to find ourselves back in the rut of doubting God and the fact that He cares enough about us to meet our needs. It can be especially easy to doubt when we place more of our focus on late bills, lost income and rising prices. With all of this evidence staring us in the face each day it can be hard to believe that things will actually get better financially. While I have not mastered my fears

money bible

We talk a lot about ways to save, ways to spend wisely, and ways to give. What we don’t discuss enough is ways to invest. Of course money is the first thing that comes to mind when the word INVESTMENT is mentioned but what about an investment in eternity? That’s a foreign concept to most. It’s helpful to think in terms of temporal versus eternal when making investment decisions. Many things are temporal such as a car cutting us off on the freeway, a good grade on a report card, a missing (VALUABLE) coupon that will give us a sweet
