Financial Freedom…here we come!

23I am so excited to have finished the Crown Financial study course my husband and I joined 11 weeks ago! God has opened our eyes to more than just properly handing our finances. We’re experiencing a new type of contentment that comes from understanding His richness – the kind that doesn’t necessarily have dollar signs attached. While “financial freedom” is still ahead for us, our savings thermometer is rising slowly, and the burden feels lighter with the tools He has provided as well as the support of the new (and closer) relationships with our Crown group members, Bible study family, and church.

My husband has developed new work contacts and has picked up some extra handy work. He’s also glad to be exercising more patience, and he’s even reading and hugging more often!!! (He’s not a hugger…LOL!) As for me, my organizational “talents” have been put to work for both God’s plan to bless others as well as for my professional growth. I’m in the process of securing part-time work to keep skills sharp and help with household finances. My faith and desire to draw closer to God (and please Him – no longer man, nor myself!) has been increasing. Our kids are also reaping the benefits from Crown, as we have started them on a giving/saving/spending plan that will enable them to become faithful stewards, eliminating the need to experience the same hardships their parents have been going through.

I highly recommend this study for everyone, regardless of where you are financially and where you are in your walk with God. It is a teaching that will provide many lifetime tools!
