Following God, Whatever the Cost

Are you following God’s financial principles or your financial principles? We have to determine to follow God’s way whatever the cost. That mindset will prepare us for days when our old, sinful nature tries to surface and take control. In Christ, we have the strength to resist our natural impulses and the grace to live […]

Determine to Follow God

Are you determined to follow God? There is a cost to following the Lord and choosing to live His way. Sometimes, it’s a matter of breaking sinful habits and embracing those that bring Him glory. We do this by intentionally designing good financial habits into our lives while designing the bad ones out. The Bible […]

Your True Identity

You’re not what’s printed on your business card.  Identity confusion is a major problem in our culture. Your identity in God’s kingdom is not derived from your education or lack thereof. It’s not taken from your accomplishments or failures or the color of your skin.  Let me be more specific. Money is not your identity […]

Building Roots and Facing Fears

Are financial fears holding you back? I recently discovered a fantastic home improvement show by HGTV called Building Roots. It features Ben and Christi Dozier, super-talented designer/builders who hail from Texas, my home state. They started Root Design Company in 2004. Today, they and their 4 children work out of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. After just one […]

Dream Big

Do you have big dreams? Each of us is uniquely designed and created with a specific purpose. We’re given desires of things we want to accomplish here on earth and when we work as unto God, our work brings glory to Him. The Psalmist says, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you […]

As Crown’s founder the late Larry Burkett points out, that anxiety might reveal a serious problem.    Well thank you Larry…If you’ve been blessed with My MoneyLife, I invite you […]

Spiritual Warfare

Are you battle-weary? In Ephesians 6:12, the Apostle Paul said, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” If you’re walking with Christ and seeking to live by His […]

Find God’s Plan for YOU

Have you ever been pressured to get involved in a money-making opportunity that just didn’t feel right? Maybe even recruited by a friend at church? Today, Crowns’ founder, the late Larry Burkett, reminds us that with some opportunities, it’s best to take a step back and ask some important questions.   If you’ve been blessed […]

Don’t Give Up!

Ever felt like quitting? Just giving up from discouragement?   One of my favorite references to perseverance is what the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 5. It contains the secret to learning to persevere in difficult times. It says, “we glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, […]
