The Simple Steward

You work hard, you make a decent income, and you have extra money at the end of your month…maybe a lot. You thought it would be easier when you had more money, but life isn’t feeling very easy. John Piper said it well, “Money is the universal barrier to God.” And if it’s a barrier to God, then it’s a barrier to your potential to become what God had in mind for you and live the life He intended. I believe you can love God, have money, and boldly live to your full potential.

I know life usually only gets more complicated the more you’ve earned, but, when you simplify your money choices, your heart aligns more with God, you find peace in the mayhem, and you find more of the life that God designed for you and of which you are longing.

This is not theory for me. I’ve studied financial stewardship and life planning for years with the finest teachers in the world, have been in the trenches in thousands of conversations with people just like you, and  had the rare privilege to share with millions through television, radio and print media.

This all took shape over a long career of listening and learning. I also needed it personally as I fought with my own issues around money and success. I learned that enough can be better than more. Since then, I closed my financial practice and now lead a regional ministry spreading the message of generosity to families and advisors. (Which means, if you read a financial tip or theory that interests you, review it with your counsel before making any changes to your planning – see my note at the end.)

  • We share a common story, that dates back thousands of years, still causes as much turmoil in your life today, as it did back then – and discover what to do about it.

  • We each need to identify our most pressing obstacles from our story that are getting between us and God and our closest relationships and fix it.

  • We can experience new success that will begin the process of redeeming our financial choices and guide us back to the life God made just for each of us.

It really is so simple. His gifts, His plan, your choice.

However…you could choose to stay in the midst of all the financial distractions getting in the way of your relationship with God and limiting His plans for your life. Or, you could choose to make it better and I can help. Families that keep money as their tool and God as their goal experience a life that, unfortunately, few rarely see.

Life is much too exciting to let a dollar bill get between you and the life God made for you.
