Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Faithful FinanceJanuary 21, 2018Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0FAITHFUL FINANCE has a friendly, across the table conversation type tone, but it doesn't really cover any new territory if you've read any books by Mary Hunt or Dave Ramsey on the topic of money. Good information for those who don't have a handle on how to manage money and would be ideal for those starting out -- young adults on their own, young couple starting out, or those who have run into financial trouble and are trying to dig themselves out.
A good book full of basic information, but all wise advice. She teaches you how to budget, pay off debt, develop a savings plan, and more.
I recommend FAITHFUL FINANCE as a good guide for those who want to learn how to budget, save, pay off debt, and more.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Good book on biblical and wise money managementJanuary 13, 2018bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4This book is a good general one for people looking for basic financial information. Stroud writes that her goal in the book is to give readers "an overview of what a successful financial plan looks like." (21) I think she has accomplished her goal and has done it in a very personable way.
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.
Bob Brown5 Stars Out Of 5True Wealth Comes From God!!January 10, 2018Bob BrownQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Faithful Finance is a game changer!
Faithful Finance has been a great read and very informative. Emily Stroud has tackled an often difficult subject to discuss and made it easy to understand. It's easy to follow and I love the stories that she includes to help make the information more relatable.
Mrs. Stroud is also a master at placing quotes and verses in just the right places. You can tell that she really knows her theology and is genuinely concerned that the reader understands the content. Hopefully, she will write a Study Guide or Bible Study to aid in extending her knowledge base.
Whether you are about to retire or just starting out with your finances, this book is for you!
