Nathan and Charlotte Speweik

Entering into young adulthood, all we ever heard was how hard it was to get by, how we would always struggle to make ends meet and would need to rely on debt. Generosity and financial stability were dreams except for a select few. Yet with over 2000 verses in the Bible talking about money and through classes such as Financial Peace University, we learned that not only was it possible to live within our means, but biblical. And not only could be we survive, but we could thrive.

We recognize that we are merely stewards of what God has given to us, and we can't serve both God and money (Luke 16:13). We know we are called to leave an inheritance to our offspring (Proverbs 13:22). We know debt is not our friend (Proverbs 22:7). And we know we are called to be generous with what we've been blessed with (2 Corinthians 9:6). We’ve learned through these verses that when we handle our finances God’s way, we are able to have financial peace in all seasons.
