Finding contentment in life is and should be an ongoing activity. For Christians, I believe we have an advantage in our quest for contentment because we are children of God and have an unmatched joy through Christ. But have you ever considered why we should be content? I like how the author of Hebrews puts it in chapter 13 verse 5 – Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God… Read more

I’m not convinced that a great date has to be expensive. My wife and I do a lot of things that don’t cost an arm and a leg, and we have a great time doing less expensive dates. If you’re on a tight budget, don’t let money keep you from enjoying a date with that ‘special someone.’ Take a look at these not-so-expensive date ideas and get inspired to go have fun without going broke. 1. Walk/Run/Bike Go do something… Read more

I’ve read a lot of good articles over the last year about tithing and each made some great points. I wanted to put my own spin on the subject of tithing, so I’m going to give you three reasons why you shouldn’t tithe. You Shouldn’t Tithe If… 1. You tithe because you want recognition. Matthew 6: 1-4 instructs us how NOT to give to the needy. “Matt. 6:2 So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with… Read more

There are quite a few verses in the Bible about money and it’s difficult to pick one and call it my favorite – so I got a little help from a few Christian personal financial bloggers. When I asked these eight bloggers which verse about money was their favorite, I figured that I’d have a few overlapping answers. Interestingly, each gave a different verse – which is pretty cool because all of these blogs are unique in their content and… Read more

I’ve read a few articles recently about education and whether or not you should even pursue a degree. It’s true today that you don’t need a degree to be successful, especially with the face of business changing.

Let me start of by saying that I am a Christian and these are my views about Christians working on Sunday. My views probably don’t match up exactly with every person who reads this article, and that’s ok! I encourage you to discuss and share your thoughts below in a respectful way. I want to address the issue of Christians working on Sunday. As you read, you’ll notice that I refer to Sunday as the Sabbath. I understand that we… Read more

Fall is here!  I absolutely love this time of year – great weather, beautiful trees, good food, fun holidays ; it’s the perfect time to have fun with friends and enjoy all these things.  My wife and I love having friends over (especially in the fall), but if you’re like us, you want to make sure you don’t go broke by throwing a party.
