Back in the late 1990s I became very interested in personal finances from a biblical perspective because I heard two different, well-know Christian financial counselors talk about how there were over 2,000 verses in the bible that dealt with money, property and possessions. This was hard for me to believe so I read the bible through from Genesis to Revelation and underlined every verse that had anything at all to do with money or possessions and when I went back and counted, sure enough, it was just under 2,100 verses!
Combine this revelation with the fact that I had always struggled with my own finances and the unrealized but nevertheless true reality that in me was a heart of a teacher, and it’s probably no surprise that I began writing a book and other resources to use in helping others. I called it the Financial E.G.G.S. ministry as a way to conceptualize the fact that everything we do in our finances can be boiled down (pun intended) into the four basic categories of Earning, Giving, Getting, and Saving. Ever since then I’ve continued to offer help in a variety of formats including multi-week series, workshops, all-day seminars, individual and family counseling, etc.
The bulk of what I do and have written on is available under the Financial E.G.G.S. tab at the top for you to browse through and use free of charge.
