Finance



We're thinking about starting to follow Crown Financial Ministries . Right now, we're just in the process of learning more about it, but it seems like a great plan for us. We love that they really encourage you to remember that your money is the Lords and has only been given to us so that we can be stewards of it. This really makes us want to be good stewards of our income. It kind of reminds me of when my dad and mom were watching me play soccer or race in track growing up. Knowing they were watching me, really made me want to play my absolute best because I wanted them to be proud of me. This is what I'm encouraged to do now with the way we manage our money. I want to make the Lord proud with what He has given us. Needless to say, I think following and learning more about this program can really give us the tools to do just that!

Anyone try this or know someone that has? What do you know or think about Crown? I would love to hear what others who use this program think. I've heard only good things about it from people so far.

  1. My husband and I have both been through the course and do a modified version of it. It's a great program!

    We don't like to carry around cash all the time or do the envelope system, mainly because we like racking up miles for vacation:) So we use an excel program in which we track every receipt...and if we're over for a month then we start the next one in the negative...it's definitely helped me!

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks for the comment! I'm glad Crown has worked out for you both! Right now, we're tracking our money for the month (as suggested) and we're anxious to really get started!!
