By J. André Weisbrod

Do you regret some major financial decisions?  Most people do.

In 2016 Bankrate.com published results of a survey that found only 17% of Americans said they had no financial regrets.  The biggest regrets were:

·         Not saving for retirement early enough

·         Not saving for emergency expenses

·         Taking on too much student loan debt

·         Taking on too much credit card debt

·         Not saving enough for children’s’ educations

·         Buying a bigger house than you could afford

I have heard many people express regrets over these actions as well as others, including spending too much on vacations, too much on cars, buying the wrong or too expensive insurance, and making bad investments.  None of us is perfect and I imagine most of us – even the 17% in denial above – would change some financial decisions if we could.

Living in the past doesn’t do much good.  But learning from it is very good.  The younger we get this the better.   But no matter our age or situation, we can take actions to improve our financial condition.  I submit seven major actions:

Seeking the Abundant Life:
The Calling and Power of Biblical Stewardship

Did you know that stewardship is about much, much more than money?  That money is only one part of the calling we all have to preserve, utilize and manage our lives and all we have been given?  We will take a fresh look at the concept of dominion and stewardship, discussing and applying scripture to all aspects of our lives: personal, family, work, business, entrepreneurship, recreation, health, finances church, and ministry. 

Get ready to learn from each other.  The stimulating and effective format will emphasize Bible study and discussion as we seek to learn from each other.  “As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace…” (First Peter 4:10)  We all have experiences and many have expert knowledge in areas we will be covering.  So bring your experience and knowledge so we can all give and receive.

Sponsored by the Triumph Church Stewardship Committee, the workshop is organized and presented by award-winning author, All-American athlete, speaker and financial advisor André Weisbrod.  Couples, singles, and high school and college students:  This workshop could be a life-changer.

Date:  Saturday morning, September 17, 2016

Where: Triumph Church on Mt. Nebo Road.

Time:  Continental Breakfast starts at 8:30 AM.  We will come together at 8:55 AM and the workshop will start promptly at 9 AM and go to noon.

Oh, about that guaranteed 33% return?  The workshop will cost each family unit (up to 4 people) $15.  And if you complete the workshop you will get your money back plus $5!  Now how can you let that go?  Be there or be square.

The Only Thing to Fear…

Monday, January 18, 2016
By J. André Weisbrod

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”  This is the famous quote from Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1932 inaugural address.  With stock markets retreating amid global uncertainties, here are some considerations:

·         The two causes of the biggest financial mistakes are fear and greed.

·         The stock market loses value approximately three out of every ten years.  Over the past 10 years, only one was a complete loser, 2008.  2015 was a bit of a mix, but on balance a loser.  Will 2016 end up a loser?  Or will it be one of those years that see losses during the year but recover by the end?

"Today you have the same amount of time as the President, kings and queens and anyone else.  Until you die, you are as wealthy as anyone in your allotment of time.  So how will you use it?  Will you waste it?  Create something? Build something?  Help someone?  What will you do with this moment?  The answer will define you and your character." -- J. Andre Weisbrod.

"No room at the motel.  Born in a dirty, smelly place, wrapped in rags and placed in the animals' feed trough.    What an entrance for a King!   In God's economy wealth comes in small simple packages wrapped with love."  J. Andre Weisbrod

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."  (Proverbs 22:6)

When I was a child I watched my Dad come home from work and empty his pockets on the dresser.  His wallet would go on one side with his keys and anything else.  Then he would pull out his change and he would put it in a box.  Every so often we would go...
