Do you ever ask yourself, “How can we swing this car payment, braces, and tuition, and still afford to be generous?” And, “How in the world will I ever be able to retire?” Or wonder, “This mountain of debt is crushing us. How will we ever get ahead?”
You are not alone. Most everyone worries about money. Money worries cause stress and are a major source of marital strife. Don’t you want to be rid of this stress? Imagine your life but now with a sense of contentment and financial peace.
The Finding the Peace of Putting God First in Your Finances workshop provides a pathway to this peace. The first step is acknowledging God as the source and provider of all we have. This lays the foundation for a proper attitude toward money, namely – It’s Not Your Money!
In this workshop, we explore fresh perspectives with our relationship with money. This 1 1/2-hour interactive event includes an engaging “World Says” vs. “God Says” exchange that challenges commonly held beliefs about retirement, success, and happiness.
Did you know, there are over 2500 Bible verses about money and possessions? In the workshop, we consider a few parables and other Bible passages to help form a Godly attitude about managing all of His gifts of Time, Talent, and especially, Treasure, and how that will bring us the peace and contentment we seek.
One of the most misquoted verses in the Bible is 1 Timothy 6:10 (“For the love of money is the root of all evils, and some people in their desire for it have strayed from the faith and have pierced themselves with many pains.”)
Many people think the verse tells us that money is the root of all evil. Money is simply a tool, and like any other tool it can be used well or poorly. So many times our attitude toward money is where the line is drawn between what we give to God and what we hold close to our own hearts.
This three hour, thought provoking workshop challenges attendees to discern if they are following God’s ways or the secular world in their attitude about money and possessions.
Most marriage preparation programs touch briefly on finances. Yet money can be one of the leading causes of divorce. The three hour God Marriage and Money workshop specifically focuses on couples who are engaged to be married. Topics related to how the couple will handle money in their marriage are presented.
Time is allotted in the workshop for a couple to discuss several of the hot topics related to marital finances. The couple is provided with God Marriage & Money book to encourage additional discussion after the workshop. The proactive discussions help finances be a blessing in their marriage as they discover, discuss and resolve financial differences before they turn into financial problems.
We are also available for Speaking Events that can be tailored to the unique message you want delivered at your parish.
