Matthew 6:24

I want to take ownership of my finances and make well-informed decisions about where I spend my money, in order to be able to give and be a good steward of the money God has entrusted me with.

Here’s an article with awesome tips from – again- Leo Babauta from Zenhabits.

      Blessings Ester
