Take the “Overwhelm” out of Teaching Your Kids About Money.
Teaching children about money can feel:
But, it doesn’t have to be this way!
Whether your children are toddlers, teens, or young adults, you can begin today to instruct them about Biblical principles of money management.
Swap that “overwhelm” for “confident with a clear plan”.
Teaching children about money can be:
Why your income doesn’t matter
My husband and I raised our four sons debt-free on a salary, which was consistently under the national median. Despite (or, perhaps because of) the challenges of our situation, we determined to teach our children how to work hard, save for the future, understand what the Bible says about wealth and finances, and to give thanks for God for His provision in their lives.
The principles we teach work, whether you live on minimum wage or “the top 2 percent.”
That’s because morals, values, honesty, integrity, and perseverance don’t depend on your salary. Yet, they are universally desired, and rewarded, in the workplace.
Your children can learn to apply these Biblical principles in their life, regardless of your own, personal income.
Our step-by-step teaching won’t leave you wondering what to do next.

When I’m not writing or speaking, you can find me reading books on personal finance, creating vegan versions of American comfort food, or singing jazz and spirituals with my friends and fellow musicians in the Heritage Ensemble.
As a mom of four children, I know how hard it is to feel that you are doing your best to raise up future men and women who are hard-working, compassionate, kind, thoughtful, and Biblically centered. In our world today, there are shiny baubles and distractions around every corner.
What others are saying about the book.
“So great! Really, it is such a clear and concise way to tie together so many facets of running a household! I particularly like the checklists and opportunities for reflection. My kids are already very interested in helping out, but I’ve been unsure how to connect that to allowance and other aspects of finance for them to observe. This book had my answers!” – Kira
“As soon as I opened “3 Steps to Teaching Children a Biblical View of Money” I knew I was reading authentic material from someone who has been in the trenches and walked the walk.

This eBook is packed with wisdom and encouragement and gives parents the tools they need to teach financial responsibility to their kids and empower them from an early age to understand that their behavior and relationship with money can impact their financial health and choices in their adult lives.” – Yvonne
