You work hard, you make a decent income, and you have extra money at the end of your month. And yet, life may not be feeling any fuller. John Piper said it well, “Money is the universal barrier to God.” And if it’s a barrier to God, then it is a barrier to your potential to become what God had in mind for you. I believe that having money, loving God and living to your full potential can be simpler.
We know in fact, in many ways, life has only gotten more complicated the more you’ve earned and I have helped hundreds of couples and professionals simplify their money and live more of their potential. And when you simplify your money, your heart aligns more with God, you find peace in the mayhem, and you find more of the life of which you are longing.
John has studied financial stewardship and life planning for years with the finest teachers in the world. He’s shared his messages with millions through television, radio and print media over his career. This is not theory for John. He is a financial veteran who has been in the trenches with hundreds of couples and professionals just like you.
What John writes about and teaches came together over a long career of listening and learning and also needing it personally as he fought with his own issues around money and success as he learned that enough can be better than more. Since then, John has closed his financial practice and is now leading a regional ministry spreading the message of generosity to families and advisors.
(Which means, if you read something that interests you, review it with your team before making any changes to your planning – see my note at the end.)
When you buy John’s book, you will:
Learn how the pattern of our 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.
Identify your most pressing obstacles from your story that are getting between you and God and your closest relationships and how to deal with them.
Experience new success that will begin the process of redeeming your financial choices and guide you back to the life God made just for you.
It really is a simple. His gifts, His plan, your choice. You could choose to stay right where you are, in the midst of financial distractions getting in the way of your relationship with God and limiting His plans for your life. Or, you could choose to try to make it better and I know I can help.
Families that keep money as their tool and God as their goal experience a life that, unfortunately, few rarely see. Buy the book and start your journey back today. Why? Because life is much too short to let a dollar bill get between you the life God has waiting.
