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.

Money Stories

Have you sat in Mass on Sunday, knowing you should be focusing on the homily, but instead stressing about your money? The thoughts that pop in our heads range from small “Did I pay that electric bill?” type questions to bigger concerns like “How can we ever afford kids when we’re too strapped paying our student loans?” We sit there and wonder how we can be such anxious mess while everyone else looks like they have their financial act together.
The truth is that most of our financial issues are not unique. We just think they are because we don’t talk about them. The Money Stories Podcast aims to get Catholics talking about their money because we learn best by listening to stories. In this podcast, Caitlyn Kano, AFC FFC, will interview fellow Catholics who have a money story to tell. Together, we can benefit from the lessons they learned on their personal journeys to become faithful financial stewards.

Manage Your Money God’s Way – Money Decisions for Every Marriage

Money can destroy a marriage.
All the assumptions and experiences of the way your family used and managed money come into your marriage. Each spouse was raised in a different environment, so no two people come into a marriage thinking exactly the same way as their spouse on any issue, most especially money. And that difference can mean disaster.
Learn how to tackle those important money decisions as a team in this podcast and the Compass Catholic blog

Manage Your Money God’s Way – How to Handle a Financial Pandemic

The world seems a little upside down right now with a lot of uncertainty about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, consumer mayhem in stores, events being cancelled and the ensuring financial panic.
We may be on edge because of uncertainty or we may be in panic mode because everyone around us in is panic mode and the media is doing a great job of spreading the fears.
None of us knows the future. All we have is today. If you are feeling overwhelmed by everything around you, meditate on these verses:
Isaiah 41: 10 “Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.”
Psalm 46:2  “God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress.”

Manage Your Money God’s Way – You Need A Will

“Thus says the LORD, ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die’” (2 Kings 20:1). Not a very pleasant thought is it?
Even if you live, your family may need to deal with your affairs in case of an accident or illness. Being prepared is the best gift you can give them. If you don’t do it, the government will make those decisions for you.
Our guest on this podcast is Vanessa J. Skinner, an estate attorney at Winderweedle, Haines, Ward & Woodman, P.A., who will share thoughts on what to consider in estate planning, which is NOT just for those who are rich.
The Compass blog has more on what to consider in your estate plan. The Compass Catholic Set Your House in Order Bible study provides forms and discussion points for you to consider when making these important decisions.
