People elect government officials. They are accountable to voters. We are not accountable to any voter… but rather to God — so follow the sound money principals laid out so plainly in the bible! If you need to cut your vacation expense, do it. If your child cannot have any more golf lessons, so be it. If you do not need such a big house, then don’t buy it. If the refrigerator is still working, don’t change it! Better to be prudent than reckless.

Recently, while reading and commenting on an EarlyRetirementExtreme post entitled “Which blogs do you read?” I strongly realized that the more I focus on securing my personal finances, the more I understand that I cannot, should not, and will not go it alone!

To get to where I want to be I need to surround myself with the experience and tutaledge of others, but also need to be ready and willing to reciprocate the favor when & where the need arises. Though I mainly submit myself to the financial principles & wisdom of the bible, today I would like to specifically address the important role others play in my journey to become financially free.

According to the bible it […]

by Matt Jabs

In these economic times it is not only crucial that we reevaluate the way we handle our finances, but also the way we teach our children how to handle finances! It should be stated first and foremost that children learn from watching their parents behavior, not from listening to what their parents preach.  I suppose […]
