About "BB-02 - Personal Finance: Making More with What You Have" 

This course explores the relationship between Paul’s question to Timothy “How can a person manage God’s Church if he/she cannot manage his/her own household?” and ten economic principles to guide you in building the capacity for generosity. The core activities center around both constructing a household budget and examining our relationship with money. Participants will gain a biblical foundation for why personal finance matters in the life of an individual (or family system) as well as acquiring tools that will lower anxiety and increase the capacity for generosity. The material lends itself well to a small group study and serves as a primer for more in-depth conversations about money and society. The material is presented in three sessions can be presented in a group setting as either a three-part study or be completed in a single session of approximately two and half hours.
