I had no idea how much garbage was in my heart until God started messing with my money.
For years, I believed that giving, saving, tithing, and budgeting made me squeaky clean. But when financial conflict in my marriage became unbearable, I asked God what was wrong with my husband.
Instead, He showed me what was wrong with me?!?
Although I religiously followed the Bible’s rules on how to manage money, I was clueless about how to relate to money. I thought its purpose was to get me what I wanted out of life.
But God showed me a greater purpose: transformation.
He used my relationship with money to reveal—and heal—fear, self-preservation, and pride. He taught me the freedom of trusting Him and His ways. And He lit a fire in my heart to spread this freedom. I can hardly wait to share it with you!
