Everyday Finances for the Everyday Family takes the mystery out of s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g your hard-earned dollars. In fact, the secret to successful living can be summed up in three simple steps: (1) deny some of your wants, (2) spend less than you earn, and (3) avoid “bad debts,” such as carrying a high balance on a credit card. This easy-to-read resource guides you through commonsense principles that can help your family budget, spend, and save money wisely. The advice given here is grounded in Hebrews 13:5: “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have.”
