Your Money God’s Way

Do you need help with your finances from a Biblical perspective? When I began reading “Your Money God’s Way,” I thought it was about time that someone who had been through bad financial decisions and made it out of the pit wrote a book. It seems that so many financial books are written by people who haven’t really been through the experience of their clients.

If you don’t live anywhere near a pool or a lake and you have children or grandchildren who have whined, “I’m bored,” in the last few days, here is some […]
