7 Ways to Make Financial Resolutions You’ll Keep

Here we are at the end of the year and many of us may be thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. Some of the most common resolutions are: stay fit; get healthy; lose weight; and get your finances in order.

And if getting your finances in order is your resolution, we are here to help. In this episode, Caitlyn and Diana present 7 ways to make those financial resolutions stick. This episode is based on a blog available on the Compass Catholic Website.

If you are trying to get out of debt, meditate on Proverbs 22:7.

If you are paying off a specific loan, read Sirach 20:11.

If your resolution is to save money, picture Proverbs 21:20.

To stop overspending, reflect on 1 Timothy 6:10.

What are your financial resolutions? Or will you be joining Caitlyn and Diana in the Financial Fast? We'd love to hear about your experiences and lessons learned. Let us know by emailing us! Happy New Year and God bless!

Financial Fasting

At the end of December, we all tend to feel a bit “spent”. In this episode, Caitlyn and Diana talk about a financial fast. Fasting is most commonly associated with abstention from food, although it can also take the form of giving up other comforts. Starting on January 1st, Caitlyn and Diana encourage our listeners to participate in a fast to both help the holiday spending exhaustion and grow in prayer.

The steps to this fast include 1. Identify your needs. 2. Keep track of all your spending. 3. Focus on contentment. 4. Grow in prayer.

Will you be joining Caitlyn and Diana on this fast? Email us at or follow the Compass Catholic Facebook page. We’d love to hear your personal financial fasting story!


Episode Guiding Principle:


Ezra 8:21

Then I proclaimed a fast, there by the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God to seek from him a safe journey for ourselves, our children, and all our possessions.

Ezra 8:23

So we fasted, seeking this from our God, and it was granted.
