Story Behind the Book
"The day I realized I didnt know anything about moneyeven though I have a business degree and experience hosting a national business radio show for womenwas the day I held my baby girl in my arms for the first time. I did not have a choice about whether to work or stay at home; we simply didnt have enough money. After applying this financial model, I was able to walk away from a job in television news that I had held for fourteen years. God means it when He offers us abundant life, here and eternally. This book reveals a realistic example for todays women who long to be free and have meaningful, prosperous lives."
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Despite being a highly educated young woman, Carolyn would be the first to admit that she was completely clueless about how to handle money in her earlier years. She had a great job and a college degree, but no knowledge about providing for her family's future! Inspired by the seemingly flawless woman recorded in Proverbs 31 (fondly called Proven), Carolyn began to face her financial fears and form a plan for taking control of her own money. With the goal of one day being able to smile at the future as Proven once did, Carolyn began to educate herself on both the business and spiritual aspects of investing. Finding that God is faithful to provide assurance to those willing to confront their financial fears, she decided to share her success story in Women, Take Charge of Your Money.
God's Word is the backbone of this devotional-style book, as the author relates the joys and difficulties of managing money God's way. The main idea is that to live a financially-secure life, one must invest in her own future just as our Proverbs model sold merchandise in the market, and even bought a field after considering the advantages. Carolyn warns that the first step will be the scariest, but God will not let the faithful fail because he wants His children to be liberated of worry. As a now-successful real estate investor herself, Carolyn knows the potential freedom that can come from properly using her method of educating oneself on the market and relying on God all the way. It's simply a matter of coming out of hiding and deciding to accomplish God's Will for financial freedom.
Women, Take Charge of Your Money was surprisingly light and humorous considering the daunting topic it addresses, and the straightforward advice provides a fool-proof plan when the reader decides to commit. Carolyn's enthusiasm for her strategy can give even the most timid investor confidence that peace of mind about money matters is within arms reach. Though the book is not an exhaustive resource on how to buy, sell, and invest, it is perfect for the Christian trying to figure out where to start on the road to a more stable future. I highly recommend it for any woman who wants to learn to glorify God with her stewardship and prepare for a future she can smile about. Amanda Branyan, Christian Book Previews.com
