Let God Be God!

Do you need to slow down? If you’re running around like a hamster on a wheel, maybe you need to take a break! Crown’s founder, the late Larry Burkett, suffered during a time of particularly high stress. Recognizing that it was more than he could handle, he jokingly said that he was going to resign […]

Others Can Help Us Achieve Financial Goals

Do you think you’ll achieve your financial goals all by yourself?  Many people set financial goals, but they struggle to keep them because they attempt to do it all alone. Solomon offered helpful advice in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. He said, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either […]

You’re Teaching Your Children

What are you teaching your children? A friend of mine loves teaching the Bible to children. One day, she and her grandson, Henry, were role-playing the story of Noah and the flood.

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 […]

Discover Your Purpose

Have you bought into the American dream? Are you working as hard as you can, to make as much money as you can, to retire as soon as you can, to entertain yourself as long as you can? Well, that was my interpretation of the American dream, and I was wrong. It led me way […]

Plan Ahead

Good stewards plan ahead.  The Proverbs 31 woman is an example of someone whose planning is key to good stewardship. We’re told she worked hard, spent wisely, and planned ahead.
