Money Money Money = Taxes = Yikes!

Working for an insurance agent for five years taught me that I really do not like to deal with the details and numbers of insurance, finance, annuities, trusts and estate planning! But being in ministry with my first husband for over twenty years taught me that our stewardship of money matters to God. I see the value of being responsible, and I work hard to be a good steward of what God's given Tom and I, but I sure wouldn't recommend myself to advise anyone else on money.

That's where a good solid ministry like Crown Financial comes in. With over 30 years of faithful service to the church, it can really stand in the gap and help widows get their bearings. And for those who already have good financial advisors, Crown Financial's website and various tools can help widows keep a bead on advice they've received.

Start out with their homepage, and then type key words in the search box for helpful articles and resources you need to find. (Suggestion: type Single Mom in the search box). They offer various books, budget systems and curriculum for sale, but calculators and budget guides, etc. are free and downloadable from the Tools tab; plus, you can subscibe to free e-mail newsletters! Also, search for a money coach in your area if you're interested.

Spend some time on the site and let me know what you think. Maybe 2011 is the year you can turn your finances around with God's help like these people did! Restore, rebuild, renew!
P.S. MSN.com says, "E-mail a question to Turbo Tax before the Jan. 31 deadline, and one of its tax experts will call you back with an answer -- free. You only get one question, so make it a good one!"
