Over the last year, we’ve seen a rise in unemployment and devastating financial crises among many families.
In difficult times, the temptation is to place our trust in the amount of resources available to us rather than in the One who promises to meet all of our needs “according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Managing Your Money During Uncertain Times,” Deborah Pegues is with us to help you stop, take a deep breath, and stand firm in your faith in God and His promises.
Deborah is a certified public accountant, a certified behavioral consultant, and a Bible teacher.
She offers straightforward, practical advice for taming your finances. Among the topics we cover are:
- Examining where you stand financially and preparing a plan.
- How to get in sync with your spouse.
- How to control spending based on emotion.
- How can prayer affect the way you manage your finances?
- How to manage credit so you don’t overspend.
- Steps to take to prepare for a better future.
- What about tithing?
