In the beginning

Years ago I wrote on how to make life simpler and manage personal finances on improvethequality.com. (A site now taken over by a Japanese company)  I took a few years off to focus on other things like finally getting my B.S. and now I have decided it is time to return to this topic here.

One of the reasons I am doing this  is that I am now talking a lot about personal finance at my church; I am teaching classes and talking to people personally to tell answer any questions they may have.   I wanted to have a place full of resources for people I talk to and work with.  I wanted to get back into this world of personal finance and simple living but this time with more of a perspective more influenced by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I will also hopefully be challenging some of my own thoughts on different matters like some biblical perspectives on marriage and money.  Boy, how that has changed over the years.

If you have found your way here I hope you will give me a chance.  Subscribe to the feed.  Or follow us on Facebook or twitter
