Financial health is essential to a happy marriage.

This book was more of a 'read once and put away' book, where I was really hoping for a long-term reference worth more reflection.

The Catholic Answers Guide to Family Finances is a must-read for everyone who has a family and finances. This book contains a wealth of information about keeping your finances in order, while at the same time increasing your faith and trust in God. There are worksheets to help you keep track of everything.

I especially liked how this book approaches finances from a faith-filled perspective. Mr. Lenahan talks about putting your trust in God. He quotes Bible passages relating to this and to the proper attitude toward money.

This is an excellent resource for helping with your finances and your faith. I highly recommend this book!

Lenahan's The Catholic Answers Guide to Family Finances is one of the three best personal finance books I have read (the other two are Schwab's Guide to Financial Independence and Stanley and Dunko's The Millionare Next Door). Lenahan's is the best of these three books because it has opened my mind to the spiritual dimension of personal finances, and it is, after all, upon this dimension that all else depends. Be sure to do all the readings and exercises in Part 1 of Lenahan's book, and you will in all likelihood become a much better person for the effort, as well as have insight into personal finances that you cannot obtain from other finance books. I am more than glad that I have read this book, and I highly recommend it for all who would wish to attain the greatest advancement of their personal financial and spiritual net worth.

This workbook has both spiritual and practical components that make it a must for every family. It is also set up in such a way that it can be worked through independently or with others in a study group format.

While the workbook is easy to read and understand, it will take time and commitment to work through it and actually apply what it contains to your financial situation. Phil Lenahan gives you all the tools necessary in this workbook. It is the first step to getting your financial house in order and keeping it that way.

Financial health is essential to a happy marriage. That is why Phil Lenahan's book is a tremendous service to married couples. This is a GREAT gift for newlyweds or newly engaged.
