Why is it we never seem to have enough?
Questions like these can keep you awake at night-or worse. Without a solid financial and spiritual foundation on which to base sound decisions, problems-and not just money problems-tend to multiply in a marriage. And they come whether you're struggling on $20,000 a year or "coasting" on a six-figure income.
Whether you are about to marry or are still in marriage's early years, best-selling author Larry Burkett can steer you around the pitfalls that result from mishandling your money. In this valuable guide he will help you:
Establish a workable budget
Discover what kind of insurance you need and how much
Teach your children about finances
Diagnose economic danger signs in your marriage
Explore different types of investments and decide which are best for you and much, much more.
Solid biblical direction, practical advice, and years of "field-testing" make this a book that won't gather dust on your shelf!

I wish we had read this book when we were going through our premarital counseling! There is so much valuable information that can truly help a couples' finances. Although we are in our third year of marriage, it still has relevant information that has helped us to create a good, working budget and is helping us to turn our debt around - our family is happier, healthier and our life is sweeter now that we've used Larry Burkett's advice. I highly recommend this book to Christian couples who are looking for financial help and guidance.
