One Week Financial Makeover

Anyone can experience financial hardship at any time. It’s a great reminder that God is our ultimate Provider. He’s promised to meet our needs and He’s always faithful. Still He expects us to do our part. Preparing for lean times is not only common sense it’s backed up by God’s Word. So what can you do to get ready? Financial planner and teacher Rob West has a list of things to get you started.


•          Proverbs 6: “Go to the ant, consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.”

•          Genesis 41: “ … and the seven years of famine began, just as Joseph had said. There was famine in all the other lands, but in the whole land of Egypt there was food.”

•          Day One: Take five minutes to sign up for a personal finance newsletter or blog. 

•          Day Two: Make a “to do” list of 10 financial tasks you’ve been putting off. 

•          Day Three: Do something. Pick one thing from your financial “to do” list and just do it. That’ll give you the satisfaction of crossing it off your list.

•          Day Four: Set up a system to track your spending.

•          Day Five: Try to identify one area a week where you can trim or cut something altogether.

•          Day Six: Work up your Mayday Budget.

•          Day Seven: Take some time to reflect and meditate on God’s Financial principles.

•          Philippians 4:19. It reads, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”


In today’s show we also answer your questions:


•           I have a farm and some rental property and about 40K in liquid reserves. Should we pay off one of these or buy a new property to bring in more money?

•           Should I withdraw my savings account?

•           Is it a smart to refinance now?

•           How do you know when it is smart to cash out a QDRO account?
