What is Your Definition of Financial Success?

We would all be a lot happier if we defined financial success based on our own life, resources, capabilities and progress. Judging your circumstances against other people can be disheartening. All God is calling you to do is be a faithful steward of the blessings he has given to you, with no regard to what the next person is doing

The Compass Catholic blog has more on defining financial success for yourself.

Based on a listener's question, here are the percentage guidelines for various budget categories. The link will download a spreadsheet to your computer. Use this as a starting point and customize it to fit your life.

Congratulations on your engagement

There are lots of things to think about and plan for as you approach your wedding day. Unfortunately, most couples who are engaged to be married talk more about the flavor of their wedding cake than about their marital finances. The cake cutting ceremony takes about 10 minutes but finances are something they’ll deal with every day of their entire married life.

The Compass Catholic blog has more about why the “Money Talk” is so important to a strong healthy marriage.

What is Your Stock Market Mentality?

Following the stock market can drive you crazy if you take it too seriously. We are called to be good stewards of all the blessings God has bestowed upon us. And being a good steward means handling our time, talent and treasure in a God honoring way and it also means putting our material wealth into the proper perspective.

Know what is happening in the stock market, but don’t obsess over it. Realize that God owns everything and he is in control—not you!

Listen in and check out our blog to learn more about a spiritual viewpoint of the stock market.
