 Well, it's almost time to close out another year. One thing I like to do at the end of every year is to think through some of the 'highs' and 'lows' of the year and recall God’s faithfulness. He has sustained us through another year!

Our Favorites

  • 039: How Memorizing Scripture Can Impact Your Stewardship (Ft. Dakota Lynch) 
    • Scripture memorization instills a Biblical worldview of Stewardship within your heart and mind. So when decisions need to be made about money, finances, saving, spending and stewardship, one will ALREADY have a clear BIBLICAL framework on making right, wise and Godly financial choices! Visit or a grouping of verses that can kickstart your Scripture Memory on Stewardship!
  • 025: Buying & Owning a Car 
    • The Used Car Step Up Plan is a framework for how to buy a car without going into debt. Some folks will shutter at the idea of purchasing a car without a loan. How in the world could anyone possibly do that? This used car step up plan is logical and makes sense! You CAN own a nicer car without taking out a loan, it will just take some work, patience, and delayed gratification. This is a very practical piece of advice.
  • 012: Emotional Investing Can Be Costly
    • In this episode, we talk about getting the facts. It is important to seek unbiased third party facts about the decision you are making. Don’t get sucked into the hype and hysteria promoted on popular radio, TV shows, and commercials. This is especially true during a market downturn. Getting the facts dials back the emotions, and allows you to see reality of the world and it’s impact on your finances! It is also important to seek wise counsel and sleep on your decisions before you make them.
  • 011: 5 Things to Look For in a Financial Advisor
    • Why would I need to hire a "Christian" financial advisor? Don’t they just look at numbers all day? What impact could that possibly have on my walk with Christ? But a Christian financial advisor is almost necessary for having your investments set up so that they truly glorify God. A Christian financial advisor can help you avoid “sin stocks” as we talked about in episode 058 on the 6 Rules of Investing. A Christian financial advisor can help you invest in things that are making an eternal difference as we talked about in episode 035 on Biblically Responsible Investing
