Booker T. Washington said, “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” Giving, and specifically, tithing, is very fundamental to the Christian faith. Many Christians want to know, what is a tithe and how much they should exactly be giving? Well, let’s talk about it! First, let’s define what a tithe actually is. Tithing in the Bible is the first 10% of your income and is supposed to represent the first...

Have you ever been scrolling through Instagram only to come across an account of someone in a new outfit or on a beach and then immediately wonder, “I think it’s time for me to buy a new outfit (or book a vacation”…)  Yeah.

Turning down those random trips felt easier and cutting out fast food purchases, a breeze. But now we’re a few months in, and keeping up this...

I love the New Year, especially as a coach. I really enjoy hearing about people’s 2015 plans for their money, and nothing makes me happier than seeing people achieve those plans! But what breaks my heart is seeing financial goals pass like many other resolutions. I never want people to stay in the same place, when I know they deserve financial growth.

I write quite a bit on the importance of budgeting. You budget so that you can free up money to save, invest, and/or put toward other financial goals. I even told a story of two types of spenders: one who plans ahead and the other who spends it all (check it out here). But I’m often asked, “What do you do when you plan ahead, but your wife spends it all?” So here are five...
