HABITS

Developing consistent money habits produces a lifetime of fruit. Understanding five simple habits will transform the way you view and handle money.

HOPE

God has plans for each of His children. Looking forward with margin and planning allows us to strive after the hopes God places on our hearts.

Most high school students graduate without being equipped with a basic understanding of personal finance and how they can live out their faith through their finances
