From the Publisher
“It’s our financial responsibility as Christians to be good stewards of our money. Whatever the Lord wants you to do, you can do that when you have financial freedom.”
In scripture, God constantly assures us that he will provide for all our needs, but for many people, that promise can be hard to believe. You may be struggling under the burden of a mortgage or an unexpected medical bill. Or maybe you are starting out on your family’s financial journey and are frustrated that you don’t know the first thing about budgeting. Sam and Rob Fatzinger understand these anxieties and want to share that you don’t have to be a Warren Buffet to live well and free from these worries.
In A Catholic Guide to Spending Less and Living More, the Fatzingers share their hard-won wisdom and spiritual insights on how to adapt the financial advice of experts such as Dave Ramsey, Chris Hogan, and Brandon “Mad Fientist” Ganch to your life to help you overcome your financial struggles and thrive.

Change Your Financial Mindset
Take Stock and Dream Big
Before you can make a plan, you have to figure out your family’s wants and needs. This mentality helps you discover your financial vision and goals, what is holding you back, and how to reconcile the two.
Become an Intentional Spender
Intentional spending means spending money according to your personal priorities and values. Once you can tell your money where to go and what to do, you can feel freer to make financial decisions that make sense for you and your family.
The temptations of consumerism depend on feelings of discontent and the belief that more will fix those feelings. By practicing gratitude and finding satisfaction in what you do have, you will not only be happier, but more financially free.
It seems counterintuitive when you are trying to spend less that you would be encouraged to give money away, but not only does generosity help your community, it can also reset your priorities and make you aware of the impact your stewardship can make on those around you.
