Handling the Money

Whenever you see a list of the top reasons for fights between couples, money is always at or near the top. It makes sense. A spender marries a saver and they fight. A spender marries a spender and they fight. When two savers get married, I’m thinking they probably get along just fine as they shop at their favourite thrift store. Because money can be such a flashpoint in our homes, it makes sense that “Handling the Money” needs to be part of our family series. God’s plan for your home to be awesome includes principles of managing your finances.

Take advantage of the resource page we have set up with books and videos, as well as the previous messages in this series and information on the Biblical Soul Care sponsored events that we have put together on parenting. If you have any questions about the family, email them in to us at thefam@harvestbarrie.ca or text to 705.999.7788, and in the message on March 3, Pastor Roger and I will do our best to answer them.
