The book covers topics such as: getting a savings plan, budgeting your expenses, and investing for retirement. The chapters cover the whole range of financial problems so this book is helpful whether you’re graduating from college, facing retirement, or starting a family. The step by step approach Emily uses is easy to understand and illustrated with examples of real people.
One of the best parts of the book is that it’s written from a Christian perspective. The focus is on not only money, but what matters most in your life. I particularly liked the chapter on how to give generously and prayerfully.
The book opens with a chapter on choosing a financial adviser. I think it contains excellent advice and certainly someone who is a professional money manager can help you flesh out Emily’s suggestions. However, I’d add a caveat. Do research, ask friends, and make sure that the adviser you choose shares your values.
I received this book from Handlebar Publishing for this review.
Stroud combines insight from the Bible with practical financial management. We should manage our money because doing so wisely will yield a more “peaceful and fruitful life.” (16) She covers a number of basic topics like choosing a financial planner, making a budget, developing a savings plan, giving generously, reducing debt, planning for children's education, insurance, retirement, and estate planning.
While this book is a somewhat typical one on the topic, I did really like a couple of her sections. I was amazed at the amount of credit card debt people hold. She identifies the basic problem, I think, wanting more. She reminds readers that only God can fill that emptiness in the soul. Stuff will never do that.
I really like her short Epilogue, including the 10 Secrets for Living Life Well. My favorite one was #2, “Read as many books as you can get your hands on.” (199) These ten life admonitions are a good addition to the financial ones.
I recommend this book as a good one on the basics of managing finances in a wise and godly way. Stroud is very personable and tells stories on herself. That made the book more readable and interesting. She also lists a number of resources at the end of the book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Handlebar. My comments are an independent and honest review.
I found this enlightening and it really spoke to me. Right now, my husband and I are both out of work. We have a baby and bills, and there are times that the finances are getting to be too stressful for me. I especially liked the section on monthly budgets. My husband struggles with that and I am hoping reading this will help.
People often talk about how important finances are, but they don’t always break it down. This definitely breaks it down in a readable way that makes sense. It might look like a textbook, but it doesn’t read like one. This is perfect for those who know nothing about finance (like me) or for those wanting to think about finance in more depth.
