Financial Freedom

Proverbs 19:20-21 (NASB)

Listen to advice and accept discipline,
So that you may be wise the rest of your days.
Many plans are in a person’s heart,
But the advice of the Lord will stand.

God’s word has much to say about how we should live our lives, including how to manage money. If you are like me, you may benefit from the wisdom and experience of others to fully appreciate God’s plan for living your faith through wise stewardship. The growing movement of Biblical financial planning raised thought leaders to help tackle this challenging topic. They provide thoughtful content through blogs, sermons, videos, and books. As a Certified Kingdom Advisor, I often share books from these leaders with the families I serve. The recommended reading varies by age and stage.
