I love to read! The more I read, I realize…I never master any “area” of my life, but can always learn more. I love reading books on these topics: my walk with Jesus, marriage, parenting, friendship and finances.
In our family, we enjoy learning more and more about our finances, and ways to manage them to glorify God. We are always looking for balance between enjoying life now (because tomorrow is not promised)…and planning for the future or other financial obstacles that arise.
I have seen people who hold on to every dime. They never seem to enjoy the life they are living today, but always looking towards the future.
I have also seen people that spend money they don’t have, constantly building debt just to “keep up with the Jones’s.”
My husband and I don’t want to live like either one of these people. I believe wisdom is somewhere in the middle. There are some great books that have helped us pursue this balance.
So…here are my Top 5 books that can transform your finances for the better.
1. Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey
2. The Millionare Next Door
3. Debt-Proof Your Marriage: How to Manage Your Money Together
4. How to Manage Your Money When You Don’t Have Any
5. Managing God’s Money
I hope these books will help you as they have our family. I believe you can turn around any financial situation, but many times we just need some guidance and direction. These books definitely give that!
