HeidiMarie3 Stars Out Of 5Poverty, Riches, and WealthJuly 13, 2018HeidiMarieQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This book is all about moving out of poverty, not with riches, but with Biblical wealth.
The author grew up in poverty thinking that wealth was evil. However, in adulthood, as he worked to move out of poverty, he learned that it can't be evil, because heaven is full of riches. So what does the Bible say about poverty, riches, and wealth?
God blesses us with wealth: these are the qualities, skills, and attributes that God has given us to do His work and advance His Kingdom.
He also talks about the fact that it is okay to have money and to buy things. It's okay to have nice things, as long as those things don't have you.
He gives lots of principles and ideas to get yourself out of that poverty mentality to see the wealth that God has blessed us with.
The first half of the book seemed aimed toward personal life application, while the second half definitely focused on using these principles as you run a business. Personally, I think that he went to far into business, and that would have worked better in a separate book marketed toward business owners.
Overall, I gave this 3.5/5 stars.
Creative2xmomCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Challenging, but timely readJuly 9, 2018Creative2xmomCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Are riches and wealth a sign of God's blessing? Or are they the trappings of this world? Does ones financial status mirror their spirituality? Should all wealth be shunned? And what about the name it and claim it gospel?
These and many more questions are addressed in Kris Vallotton's new book, Poverty, Riches, and Wealth. Vallotton asserts that how we look at money dictates our current, and future, wealth. And we're not just talking finances, but true kingdom wealth as defined by money, healthy outlooks on life, and legacy, to name a few.
While poverty and riches tear at us from different sides of the spectrum, true wealth is found somewhere in the middle. Although Vallotton doesn't defend a "name it and claim it" gospel, he does believe that the Lord cares for our finances, as he cares for every other detail of our lives. But wealth goes beyond money into the territory of engrained mindsets and recognizing the Lord's work in our day to day lives.
Is Proverty, Riches, and Wealth a challenging read? Did it force me to confront some difficult areas of my life? Yes. But not all things that challenge are bad. In fact, I found that the most difficult chapters forced me to examine my beliefs in ways that I needed to grow. Is this book worth your time and money? Absolutely. But only if you're ready to read with any open mind. This book will push you to honestly confront your poverty mindsets and will be transformational if your ready for change.

Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5New UnderstandingJune 20, 2018MelissaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4So this book was actually different then I thought it would be. I thought it would be more about thinking with a poverty mindset with spiritual gifts. That is not the case. This book really talks about how God does want to bless us with physical gifts as well.
Kris did a great job explaining somethings I had a weak understanding of in the past. His personal stories add a touch I appreciate that kept me engaged.
Even though this wasnt what I expected I still enjoyed the book very much.
A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.
vics495484 Stars Out Of 5What is true prosperity?May 1, 2018vics49548Quality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I love that author Kris Vallotton brings out the fact that prosperity isn't just about money. True riches aren't just about money. This is not a name it and claim it book. He teaches us the biblical principles of money and wealth. God does really want us to prosper. What does that look like? And how does that happen? I suggest you get this book and learn from it.
Along with God's ideas about money, Vallotton teaches about leaving a legacy for future generations. And that's not just money either. This book may challenge your mindset, but that's okay. Find out what true wealth is in God's Kingdom.
I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.
