Your Financial Lifeboat (Emergency Fund)

February 16, 2019

There are two types of people in the world: Those whose finances stay safely afloat, and those who sink slowly but surely into debt.  Surprisingly, the difference has little to do with how much they earn.  Today, Rob West and Steve Moore show you how to properly inflate your Financial Lifeboat – better known as your Emergency Fund – so you’re better prepared for life’s unexpected storms.  Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and about the following:


·      I am a veteran and I have a heart for military charities. I recently began to notice that when I get fundraising letters, I see different return addresses on the letters from the same organization. Should that concern me? Are some of them fraudulent? 

·      I’m curious about dollar-cost averaging when it comes to my investing. Is that wise?  

·      Do you have any suggestions when both spouses aren’t good about paying bills and keeping track of our financial life?

·      I’m 67 and debt free. I was laid off last November, and now have a part time job. My current income doesn’t meet my monthly expenses. How can I better manage my money?

·      I’m retirement age and have no debt. I have over a million in the stock market, but I’m wondering if I should cash that stock in and invest in bonds instead.


At the end of the program, Steve mentioned the book, Simplifying the Money Conversation, by Ron Blue. You’ll find it on our website at  While you’re there, you can connect with a MoneyWise Coach or access our other books and many free helpful resources.  You can also find us on Facebook (MoneyWise Media) and join the conversation.

joined Larry Burkett at Christian Financial Concepts in 1985. The radio network grew from two hundred to over twelve hundred stations in just a few years with "How to Manage Your Money and Money Matters" being recognized with a number of national awards. Steve remained as co-host and Vice-President of Broadcasting through the CFC/Crown merger in 2001 and Larry Burkett’s death in 2003. He then hosted the Money Matters program with Howard Dayton until 2007.

In the spring of 2011, Steve and Howard Dayton felt the time was right and that God was directing them to once again start a daily radio call-in program that would help people find practical and biblical ways to manage their resources.
