Every time mom and dad bail them out as teenagers is one more time you’ll have to bail them out when they are an adult.
We’ll share the things teens need to know about money in order to become a responsible, fully functioning adult. Also check out our blog for ideas about what to teach them before they leave home.

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.
