Someone asked me the other day why I wrote the book “The Faith-Based Millionaire”, a book designed to help people incorporate their faith into their financial plan. As I previously mentioned, I believe that God really put it on my heart to write this book and get this message out there. I see so many Christians make conscious decisions where they work, spend money, and tithe. We all have values, beliefs, and morals that help us make decisions in these three areas. However, for most,they never use the same set of principles when it comes to investing. The rules get thrown out the window. Only a small minority get it. It breaks my heart and I’m sure that of God’s.
Take for example: I have a dear friend who is an executive for a major Wall Street firm based in Chicago. He is a strong Christian and EXTREMELY active in the pro-life movement (time and money). He gives tens of thousands of dollars a year to pro-life organizations and does not screen his personal investment portfolio. It is almost as if his donations are cancelled out by his investment dollars. Here he is giving money to help end abortion yet his investment dollars are invested in the very same companies performing abortions on demand and furthering the pro-choice movement.
I am committed and passionate about helping others learn what values are important in their lives and helping them understand what their investment dollars are supporting. Ultimately I find great joy helping individuals allign their faith and finances… I truly believe it is a God thing that lead me to open this dialogue… I believe He will help me get this message out to the masses.
