from a Biblical Perspective

As we teach our children to know and love God and follow in His ways, encouraging them to honor God with their money is an important task that cannot be neglected. One of the roles my husband plays in parenting our kids is teaching them about money management, since he is both knowledgeable and interested in the topic.  We have also learned from other parents and resources and implemented some basic strategies to help get our kids off to the right start.
