I’m Dead, Now What? (What your family needs to know)

We rarely think about the end of life issues or what would happen if we became incapacitated due to illness or accident. What a blessing it would be to your family in this situation if all the important information they would need was up to date, organized and easy to locate. 

Check out the Compass Catholic Bible study, Set Your House in Order. It’s a 5-week small group study which walks you through the process of getting all your important information created, updated and organized. There is no better gift you can give your family.

Our blog has more on this topic.

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.
