    36. The Parable of the Talents (Managing God's Money Series)

    This episode is the first in a series of episodes from the "Managing God's Money" sessions that I teach for churches. It's an opportunity for us to take a deeper dive into specific passages to better understand what the Bible teaches us in the areas of giving, saving, and spending. 



    The Parable of the Talents is one of the most important passages in the entire Bible on the subject of stewardship. In today's episode we'll explore three important truths about money that Jesus taught in this passage.

    35. Which is Better: Traditional IRA or Roth IRA?

    35. Which is Better: Traditional IRA or Roth IRA?

    The IRS recently extended the 2020 IRA contribution deadline. Instead of April 15th, you can now make a 2020 contribution to an IRA up until May 17th, 2021. With so many Americans receiving a stimulus check or tax refund (or both!) now might be a great time to invest excess cash in an IRA. 



    In this episode we'll break down some of the key differences between Traditional and Roth IRAs and give you four key questions to ask that will help you determine which type of IRA is right for you.

    34. Five Reasons Why People Overspend + Eight Ways to Stop

    We've all been guilty of being over-budget from time to time. Maybe we spent an extra $50 last month on restaurants or we went $200 over our price limit on Christmas gifts. However, there's a big difference between occasionally being over-budget and a harmful pattern of overspending.



    So how do we know if we're overspending? And more importantly what motives are at the core of our decisions to spend more than we know we should? 



    In this episode, we'll talk through five rationalizations people use to justify their unhealthy spending habits. We'll follow up with eight practical ideas you can use to guard against this destructive habit of overspending.
