Babbling about Books -- Thursday -- Financially Free

Financially Free
MaryBeth & Curt Whalen
Publisher: Kregel Publications

As Christ-followers many times we hear the phrase, “God has perfect timing.” Well, once again I say “Amen!” I doubt that Financially Free could have been released at a better time. With the economy crash, everyone is looking to find financial freedom.

Marybeth is with Proverbs 31 Ministries, and one of our seven principles is, “Contributes to the financial well-being of her household by being a faithful steward of the time and money God has entrusted to her.” Financially Free fits perfectly with this statement of purpose.

One of the things I like about this book is that it was co-written with MaryBeth's husband Curt, so the reader has both the man and woman's perspective. Even if your household budget is under control, I think this book will be a welcome addition to your finances. It is written with honesty and biblical precepts. It’s a winner to be sure—BINGO!

I loved this book. I like the fact it's written from their perspective of raising a family on a "normal" income. Many financially free type books are written by people with six-digit incomes and really have no financial difficulties.

I'm using their suggestions to pay off my debt, now. Not sure I've quite mastered it, yet--I still have to learn how to give up things--but, I'm learning and Marybeth and Curt's book was certainly the catalyst!
