The purpose of financial planning is to help us map out our lives and prepare us, not only financially, but also mentally and spiritually for the road ahead. Financial planning also helps us to stay aligned and focused. As we align our relationship with Christ, this greater bonding will help us to stay focused on Him and as well as our goals.
As children most of us are not taught the importance of finances, savings, or
good credit. Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge comes to affect us negatively in our
adulthood, as we find ourselves without financial means during a time of crises due to
lack of savings, plus a lack of obtaining financial means due to a bad credit rating
(score) or, for some, a lack of credit. This financial guide was created to help you in
taking your first steps on the path to controlling your finances and securing a future.
