Money. We all have to have it to live, yet sometimes we have not much idea how to go about keeping those dollar bills from all being gone to the wind before we hardly see them enter our hands.
I just am so passionate about this topic that I decided to take a little leap and turn it into a series of weekly posts.
Specifically what is on my heart is practical teaching on finances for young people. More specifically, for girls (but you guys are welcome to read along.:)
Girls today are getting ripped off. Or maybe we’re ripping ourselves off.
We live in a culture that isn’t big on smart finances. It’s all about “my stuff, my way, in my time….whatever it takes to make me happy”. That’s selfish, and it’s very dumb financially.
And it gets worse…..not only is culture not telling us how to be smart with money, the church usually isn’t doing much better. Most parents these days aren’t teaching their kids about wise stewardship either.
I have seen too many girls broke at the prime of their life, going into debt when they should be putting away significant savings, or begging money for missions trips when there is no logical reason why they shouldn’t have the money to pay their own way.
There is a better way. That’s what I want to write about. If you’re wondering what I will be covering in this series, it includes (but is not limited to):
-stewardship (which includes all of the above)
-cultural misconceptions about money
Thanks for reading, friends. If there you have a question you would like to see covered, leave a comment or shoot me an email.
I am excited to talk about money!!! We all need it to live, so we might as well figure out how to be the smartest with it that we possibly can! At least that’s what I figure.
