About the Book
Jesus spoke about money and material possessions more than he talked about heaven, hell, or prayer. He noted the relationship between a man’s heart and his wallet, warning, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be.” This contemporary retelling of the Rich Young Ruler brings a fresh look at the relationship between a person’s faith and their finances.
Great faith calls us to trust God, not our wealth. Read how others have cast off the golden handcuffs and learned to live the abundant life Jesus promised in this contemporary retelling of the Rich Young Ruler. Faith & FINANCES: In God We Trust, A Journey to Financial Dependence – turning the hearts of a nation back toward God one paycheck at a time.

Q: How did you hear that the editors of Faith and Finances were looking for writers?
A: I receive daily emails from Christian Devotions (“He Said, She Said”, “DevoKids”, “First Responders”, etc.), and one day while reading the daily devotion, I saw note asking for submissions.
Q: Can you tell us a little about your contribution to the book?
A: My entry, “I Want New Floors!” takes a comical look at the never-ending debate between husbands and wives about how to spend their money… and what to spend it on. Frustration and annoyance that are at the root of disagreements can, without prayer and contemplation, fester until they become anger and resentment.
Q: So you’re saying that you and your husband actually discuss things like new flooring without getting riled up!?
A: If we remember to pray before we start talking about the things on our “What I Want” lists!
Q: How do you differentiate between your “wants” and your “needs”?
A: Good question! And almost without exception, the things we bicker most about are the things neither of us really needs. It’s those crazy “wants” that cause all the trouble!
Q: Is it your opinion that lack of prayer can result in negativity in a marriage?
A: No doubt about it! We’re all like children when it comes to what we think we need, as opposed to what really is a necessity. Did I need new flooring? Well, obviously, not… because we’re still trampin’ around on the old ones! <G>
Q: Sounds like you and your husband have a good working relationship when it comes to money….
A: That’s because, after lots of time on my knees, the Lord taught me to respect my husband’s skills. He has always been great at balancing the budget, no matter how tight things got at various times during our marriage. It was only during those times when I fought him—because what I wanted wasn’t something that fit into our budget—that we had, ahem, “words”. Letting go and letting God? Excellent advice, because the instant I stepped back and let my hubby work his magic with our budget, I got more than what I needed. Sometimes, he found innovative ways to get a few of the things I wanted, too!
Q: Do you think the other stories in Faith and Finances will help people deal with money issues more effectively?
A: Without a doubt! Every story in the book is another example of how, if we only take the time to seek the Lord’s counsel, He will provide. I’ll take it a step further and say that this book would make an excellent gift for weddings, graduations, and anniversaries. What better present than peace and harmony in our lives!
