I'm going to do at least a bi-monthly baby step post, but this week, I am not going to start with Baby 1, but am backing up to Baby Step 0!
I challenge you, if you are living pay-check to pay-check and the statics prove that many of us are, please consider taking part and message me any questions that you may have.
Challenge Baby Step 0 - go online to all of your banking institutions and figure out exactly how much money you have in the bank. Also, go ahead and figure out exactly how much debt you have not counting your house. This week make it a point not to add any new debt. Knowledge is powerful.
Also, the greatest money book ever written is the Bible. Commit to reading one Chapter of Proverbs a day. There are so many biblical financial nuggets of truth listed there.
1 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
2 for gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
3 for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 for giving prudence to those who are simple,[a]
knowledge and discretion to the young--
5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance--
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.[b]
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools[c] despise wisdom and instruction.
I have finally figured out there are only a few things I am good at doing. One is talking about money and the other is talking about Jesus. When I can combine the two -- I am in my sweet spot. This is not about the Prosperity Gospel; it is about finding peace in Jesus.
Message me if you want to talk.
