The Dreaded “B”-word!

In the last four CA meetings of 2009 we discussed God’s plan for the money we have. We laid some general groundwork in those discussions. We talked about saving, debt and giving. We also talked about the importance of planning out how to use money. In other words… we talked about the dreaded B-word; “Budgeting.”

It’s a word nobody likes to think about and even less people actually like to do it; but it is imperative to secure financial planning to budget!  Budgeting, or not budgeting, can be the difference in your financial future, but it only works if you do it.

For the Excel geeks among us, I have attached an excel model budget I made up that Kim and I use for our own personal budget both for monthly planning, and it lets us see a whole year at a glance. There are some numbers in the model already just as a visual guide to let you see how this model works.

I have also attached a document that gives some instructions on how to make the best use of the excel model.

It’s our hope that this information is tremendously practical, helpful and useful to you as you begin to plan out the use of the money God has blessed you with. Hope this blesses you.
