Birthdays on a Budget

Birthdays can be budget busters if you get carried away with an over the top party, tons of gifts and spending money instead of time with your child.

Don’t try to outdo the neighbors. Instead, make each birthday memorable by having special family birthday traditions, which will be cherished by your child much more than any birthday gifts they may receive.

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.

What does it mean to be a contented person? Happiness is a temporary "high,"whereas contentment is a longer lasting, deeper feeling of satisfaction and gratitude for everything in your life.
