Learning To Manage Money
Our annual Money Management Course begins February 3rd. Registration closes this Sunday.
I’m one of those people who asks for forgiveness more than permission. I let my intuition be my guide, pursue whatever I want and jump in without a parachute. And this translates into some pretty exciting adventures.
I like to bet the farm.
The problem is that my personality also tends to make me resistant to important things like consistency, discipline, steady income, and savings. I was raised to take risks and expect rewards. But when the rewards didn’t come in like I expected, we ended up in debt.
We were struggling to pay the rent and trapped in a terrible cycle. The debt didn’t honor God and our response to our situation only made it worse. Money problems were leading to marriage problems.
We moved in with family. I got a job (ok, this one isn't so drastic). We came up with a plan. And we joined the Money Management class.
Here’s why taking the class was better than trying to fix our money troubles alone.
- I learned everyone needs grace to change.
- I learned my friends have inspiring stories.
- I learned I could enjoy Jesus more when money doesn’t get in the way.
- I learned how to talk about money with my wife.
- I learned there is no magic pill.
Money Management was a huge blessing and is still bearing good fruit in my life. I highly recommend it!
