Mastery over Money

Do you think that more is better, especially when it comes to money? Yes, more money may ease the financial pressure for a while, but it will never provide lasting happiness.

Be Content and Give Thanks

The advertising industry was created to make you discontent so you will want to buy whatever they are selling. Ads encourage you to focus so hard on what you want and what you DON’T have, that you often fail to appreciate what you DO have.

Develop an attitude of gratitude by learning the virtue of contentment. It all starts with recognizing the blessings we already have and being thankful for them. Join us as we share ideas for appreciating what we have and learning to be content.

The Compass Catholic blog has more ideas about ways to be content and grateful for the blessings God has given you.

8 Important Money Decisions for Every Marriage

Join us for eight important money decisions every couple should make.

Money can be one of the hot button areas of a marriage. People bring into their marriage all the assumptions and experiences of their families in the way they use and manage money. Each spouse was raised in a different environment, so no two people come into a marriage thinking exactly the same way as their spouse on any issue, most especially money.

It is important to set some ground rules for money in your marriage, whether you have celebrated many anniversaries or are a newly wed.

The Compass Catholic blog has more info on these decisions.

The Spiritual Impact of Debt

It is so easy to separate our faith from our finances and think of them as two entirely separate unrelated things. But often times when we get into debt there is a spiritual void we are trying to fill by buying things we can’t afford.

Financial challenges can be a hidden monster in many families and marriages. By shining the light of faith into that dark corner, we can tackle and tame the debt monster and learn that every area of our life, including how we handle money, has a spiritual impact.

The Compass Catholic blog has more about the spiritual impact of debt.

How Much Do I Have to Give?

When you think about giving, are you focused on the minimum or the maximum? It is easy to think giving is based on some exact number that will satisfy our obligation, yet true generosity comes joyfully out of a heart filled with love.

By developing a giving plan, you can reconcile the natural tension between meeting a minimum obligation and the response to a generous God who has given us everything.

The Compass Catholic blog has more on developing a giving plan.

Master Your Money

A large part of mastering your money is based on giving it place in your life it deserves, and it’s not first place. Everything in our culture influences us to think that more is better, especially when it comes to money. Yes, more money may ease the financial pressure for a while, but it will never provide lasting happiness. 

Master your money by learning to be a good steward of God’s many blessings, including the way you give, save and spend.
