Manage Your Money God’s Way
With Jon and Evelyn Bean

The Manage Your Money God’s Way podcast is not about the money, it’s about the change—the change in your heart. Join us as we talk about ways to be a good steward of the money and possessions God has given you. We aren’t going to tell you where or how to invest or which mutual fund is the best, or which stock to buy, but we are going to challenge your mindset about integrating faith and finances.

We know how hard it is to see that link and we have made every financial mistake there is to make. We never really talked about money in our marriage and when big decisions had to be made we were good at talking “at” not “to” each other. Jon quit his full time job 2 weeks after we qualified for a mortgage on the dream house we were building and financial chaos soon descended. But it was OK, because when the savings ran out, we still had credit cards. With credit card debt, no savings, a mortgage and 2 car loans we were living the American dream!

It was at that time we discovered the link between faith and finances and it changed our lives. Fast forward and we are now retired, working as full time volunteers teaching others how to escape from the materialism in our American culture, which just proves God has a sense of humor. Who else but God would take two people who were such bad money managers and have them run a ministry to teach the integration between faith and finances? We are truly blessed to help people live their faith in such a tactical and practical way.

Many people have the mind of a 2-year old when it comes to money and possessions – it’s mine, mine, MINE! But it all belongs to God and we are simply stewards of the blessing he has bestowed on us. Join us and learn to be a better steward.

Manage Your Money God’s Way – Be Content and Give Thanks

The advertising industry was created to make you discontent so you will want to buy whatever they are selling. Ads encourage you to focus so hard on what you want and what you DON’T have, that you often fail to appreciate what you DO have.
Develop an attitude of gratitude by learning the virtue of contentment. It all starts with recognizing the blessings we already have and being thankful for them. Join us as we share ideas for appreciating what we have and learning to be content.
