Most couples argue about money at some point during their marriage.  The arguments can turn to fights and even divorce.

In this book you will read anecdotes, take a couple of quizzes, and learn how to work with your spouse to have a wonderful money relationship.

In just 90 days you will learn about:

  • Your Money Personality.
  • How your Money Personality works with your spouse’s.
  • What financial infidelity looks like.
  • How to fight fairly.

The 5 Money Personalities will help you get to the root of the problem, fix it, and be stable for years to come.

Author- Scott and Bethany Palmer live currently live in Colorado with their two young sons.  They are regulars on national TV and radio shows.  They launched “The Money Couple” to help couples bring their love and money together.

My Thoughts- I learned a lot from reading this book.  One of the most important things I learned was that although my husband and I have opposite money personalities, we can still have a very strong relationship.  We need to have a vision and work on the Huddle once a month to make our relationship stress free.

I think that every married couple should work on this book together, because we all know that money is one of the main causes of problems in a marriage.  Every church should make this book a requirement for couples planning their weddings.  We need to know about ourselves and the money relationship more than we need to know about our spouse’s.  This book will help you know yourself.

Please buy a copy of this book and do it with your spouse or spouse-to-be.  You will be better stewards of your money, because of it.

So many of us have been hurt by Christians.  Is there a solution and a way to make the hurt not happen again?

When Bad Christians Happen to Good People shows ways  to help those who are hurting.  It also discusses ways to show those who have done the damage what what they shouldn’t have been doing.

Topics discussed are:

  • The use of fear to try to gain new members.
  • Christians using their own languages to talk to unbelievers.
  • Strength in obedience to God.

My thoughts-  This book is needed in today’s society as so many people are leaving the church, because of the Christians within.

We need to let the sinners in.  We need to make them feel welcome.  I’m glad that I go to a church where I am welcomed for who I am.  I would like to go to different churches that are not “sinner-sensitive churches,” so I could help them from the inside out.  I want all of God’s children to feel welcome, not just the “perfect” ones.

“Fear-based Christianity” and speaking to unbelievers using the Christian language is not the way to go.  People who try to gain followers that way really make me shudder.  They really need to read this book.

All Christians and nonbelievers need to read this book, because we would understand what needs to be done and how to do it.  Please find a copy.
