Many of us feel overwhelmed and ill-equipped to deal with our personal finances. We wonder if we will ever experience financial freedom. We want to make wise decisions and spend money on what matters, but we just don’t know how.

Financial advisor Emily G. Stroud is a mom, businesswoman, and entrepreneur. She has two decades of experience with helping people make smart choices about money. She knows that money can be one of the great causes of stress in life—but that it doesn’t have to be that way. Finances, in fact, can be a great source of joy, security, and hope.

In Faithful Finance, Emily comes alongside you to:

Develop a savings plan based on your unique goals
Make a monthly budget that actually works for you
Reduce your overall debt burden
Plan for your children’s college years
Insure your life without fear
Leave a legacy through estate planning
Encourage you to give generously
And most importantly, discover the source of true wealth
Presented in a conversational style, this practical guide offers ten life-changing secrets that work in every financial situation, for every income level, at every stage of life. With engaging stories and practical examples, Emily empowers you to make choices that will allow you and your loved ones to enjoy financial freedom for years to come.

My Thoughts:
Emily Stroud does a fantastic job of talking budgets, finances and the tools to be financially successful in a way that is exciting. For many, finances can be boring and stressful, but Emily writes this book in a way that makes the reader excited to get their money in control. Although this book is about money and how to manage your money, I love that first, Emily is a mother and wife and second is her job as a financial advisor. Most of us could learn from that. We need to find our roles not as our jobs, but who we are in Christ. This book is one that will help give you the basics of money, understand terms that you may have never heard before or even know the definitions of loans that you wondered what they meant. For anyone who is looking to improve their relationship with money, this book is for you! I highly recommend it and give it 4.5/5 stars.
