Better manage your money using timeless Biblical principles!
Maybe you’ve been there?I still remember the moment when I realized that I HAD to get my finances in order… I was 20 years old.
I was living in a city where I didn’t know anyone.
I had no savings and I had no money left in my checking account.
My credit card was $264 from being maxed out (thank God I was not savvy enough to know I could have more than one credit card).
I was heading to the bank to deposit my very small paycheck – just enough to pay my rent that was due that day.
And then my car broke down. As it slowed to a halt, I found myself right in front of a minor league ballpark about an hour before game time. I assumed this would be a good thing, thinking that since so many people saw me that someone would help. But no one did.
As I was pushing my car to the side of the road I was hoping that the fix would cost less than the $264 I had remaining on my credit card.
Sitting in my broken down car, as hundreds drove by staring pulling into the ballpark, I finally realized that I needed help.
I was living a life of chaos and it all stemmed from my lack of financial understanding.
I cried out to God and asked for wisdom. And He has led me out of my financial mess that I created.
I know life like this is an everyday occurrence for some people. But what I realized is that it doesn’t have to be. We are not doomed to how we are currently living – we all can change!
I know, because by the grace of God, I went from a debt-ridden overspender, to having paid off over $46,000 in consumer debts, saving a 20% down-payment for our first house, and living with peace with our money.
And I want to share some of the keys that I’ve learned that have transformed my financial life!
This is why I wrote this book.

Why I wrote it
I should have done this a long time ago. For years book publishers, readers, and colleagues have been asking about a book from us, but I just couldn’t get a clear picture of it in my head.I wanted a book that would help inspire and encourage as well as provide practical helpful financial advice in a very digestible format. Then it hit me. A daily devotional would be just the tool to help deliver the goods. Having been blessed with the opportunity to run SeedTime.com since 2007, I have written countless devotionals to our readers each week. And as helpful as the online readers have found them, there is something really special about having a book (or Kindle) in your hand and being able to read a short encouraging chapter each day. I am personally really excited about this devotional and from the initial reader response and I am even more thrilled to have it published. I hope you enjoy it! All the best, Bob
