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 – An Interview with Joe Galloway

 Joe Galloway is the author of It’s Not Your Money, Finding the Peace of Putting God First. In this week’s podcast, Caitlyn and Diana speak to Joe about his new book. He shares his personal story and talks about the link of stewardship and discipleship. As a financial professional for many years, Joe saw that financial stress was not dependent on income level. No matter how much money his clients had, they were still stressed about money. Joe realized that there is peace in putting God first. It may involve a leap of faith, but it’s one that no one will ever regret.

 In today’s episode, we talk with a young married couple, Michelle and Ais Lopez. Join us as they share about how they live Marriage on Mission. Their sense of calm, despite their own personal struggles and their financial and spiritual generosity, reveal their radical trust in the Lord in all areas of their life. Their decisions reflect their belief that what they do with their money matters to others and to God and they are models of how to prayerfully discern all decisions and let God be the one to guide their choices.

Money Stories – Teaching Teens About Money Using Spiritual Cents

 We’re excited to announce our Bible study for teens-Spiritual Cents!

When writing this study, we wanted to make sure it would resonate with teens. To help us with, we brought in a consultant: a 13 year old named Bryan.  In this week’s episode of Money Stories, we talk to Bryan about teens and money. He talks about what he learned by working on this project and why he thinks adults need to have money conversation with the teens in their lives. (Full disclosure-Bryan is Caitlyn’s son!) Bryan also takes over the interview and asks Caitlyn and Diana questions about money. No money topic is off limits!
