With the current financial situation, I thought it would behoove me to read a money management/get out of debt book. I need a good kick in the rear every so often and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Without further ado, here is:
Free & Clear: God's Road Map to Debt-Free Living by Howard Dayton
It seems like financial advice is everywhere these days. We’re all stressed out about the economical crisis and what it is going to do to our monthly budgets. There are books, blogs and articles a-plenty with fantastic suggestions to cut costs and make wiser choices.
However, there is usually more to it than just reading an advice column. In fact, there is more to it than just reading the book I am about to recommend. Fortunately, this book is not only inspiring; it is also loaded with clear, practical steps to financial freedom.
Though a Crown veteran, I am by no means an economical pro. Finances, for me, are something that need to be revisited every few years. Free & Clear was not only thorough enough for someone who is just beginning to search for financial wisdom, but also refreshing for the person who needs a reminder for why they need to stick with God’s money plan.
Yes, God does indeed have a plan for your money. What’s that? It’s all His anyway? Oh yeah. Good point.
I really enjoyed the narrative of this book. There are charts and stats and pages to fill out and great homework, but it tells the story of people who were where you may be and how they were able to push their head above the surface and get to the shore.
It takes more than just a good book to become debt-free. It takes an insane amount of hard work and determination to continue to choose to make wise choices. Free & Clear is a great first step to take you down that path.
