Faithful Finance: 10 Secrets to Move from Fearful Insecurity to Confident Control

True wealth comes from God. To put it simply, money is a tool to be used wisely and can often be a blessing to you. However, use it unwisely and it can cause a vast amount of fear and anxiety. Sometimes, God blesses our finances and other times we experience a lack of resources--but no matter the financial condition, God is always faithful and always with us. In Faithful Finance, Emily Stroud, a financial advisor for over seventeen years, breaks down everything you need to know about your finances, providing simplified information, practical tips, biblical revelation, and wisdom about how to handle your money so you can have more of it.

Learn how to handle your money so you can have more of it. 

Many of us feel overwhelmed and ill-equipped to deal with our personal finances. We wonder if we will ever experience financial freedom. We want to make wise decisions and spend money on what matters, but we just don’t know how.
Financial advisor Emily G. Stroud is a mom, businesswoman, and entrepreneur. She has two decades of experience with helping people make smart choices about money. She knows that money can be one of the great causes of stress in life—but that it doesn’t have to be that way. Finances, in fact, can be a great source of joy, security, and hope.
In Faithful Finance, Emily comes alongside you to:
  • Develop a savings plan based on your unique goals
  • Make a monthly budget that actually works for you
  • Reduce your overall debt burden
  • Plan for your children’s college years
  • Insure your life without fear
  • Leave a legacy through estate planning
  • Encourage you to give generously
  • And most importantly, discover the source of true wealth
Presented in a conversational style, this practical guide offers ten life-changing secrets that work in every financial situation, for every income level, at every stage of life. With engaging stories and practical examples, Emily empowers you to make choices that will allow you and your loved ones to enjoy financial freedom for years to come.

My thoughts: FAITHFUL FINANCE has a friendly, across the table conversation type tone, but it doesn't really cover any new territory if you've read any books by Mary Hunt or Dave Ramsey on the topic of money. Good information for those who don't have a handle on how to manage money and would be ideal for those starting out -- young adults on their own, young couple starting out, or those who have run into financial trouble and are trying to dig themselves out. 

A good book full of basic information, but all wise advice.  She teaches you how to budget, pay off debt, develop a savings plan, and more.  

I recommend FAITHFUL FINANCE as a good guide for those who want to learn how to budget, save, pay off debt, and more.   
I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
