In 2012, we walked together in budget coaching and financial discipleship with Carey at One Master Ministries. Now more than 10 years later, we continue to spend, save and give from the Biblical perspective that he owns it all. We are still debt free, except for our mortgage. We continue to work from our budget and have periodic budget meetings as a couple to make sure we are on the same page.
We are continuing to grow in our budgeting by working more as a team instead of just one person carrying the weight. We have had a couple of setbacks with Jean beginning a new Spiritual Direction role that has decreased our income considerably and increased our expenses with her schooling.
We are trusting God and working towards cutting expenses and placing a business plan in action to see increase in her income towards the future. He is teaching us to be content in all circumstances through the years as we have been in places of “plenty” and “want”.
We are so grateful for the investment that Carey made in us and our family! Jean and I continue to encourage and help other couples toward Biblical stewardship as we do regular premarital counseling at our church.
