If you and your significant other are one of the many arguing over finances, struggling to pay off the mounting credit card bills, and living from paycheck to paycheck, then this book is for you. MaryBeth and Curt Whalen struggled for the first ten years of their marriage, and witnessed first hand the devastating effects it had on their marriage.

LEARNING TO LIVE FINANCIALLY FREE is written in a friendly, non-confrontational manner that reminded me of a conversation over a dinner table. MaryBeth and Curt simply told their stories, but then also included scripture references for you to meditate on and homework assignments for you to follow up on if you are interested in getting out of debt. They were also clear that getting out of debt is not a solo act. Both the husband and wife must be committed to follow the plan or it won’t work.

If you are in debt and want to get out, then pick up a copy of LEARNING TO LIVE FINANCIALLY FREE. It will be sure to help you start on the journey and give you the willpower to follow it to completion. In today’s recession, the advice is certainly timely. 170 pages.
