Pastor Michael Todd of Transformation Church coined the term "Keep it H.O.T. Humble. Open. Transparent. So here it is. My husband and I, like you, have been through the financial ringer. I didn't become a financial coach because I have all the answers or because I have it all together, all the time. I became a financial coach because I learned that we would never have sustained financial freedom if God wasn't at the center of our finances! Believe me, we tried to do this in our own strength, and all it got us was several rounds on some of the worst rides in my life: the debt yo-yo, the roller coaster of financial instability, and let's not forget the mega money melt-down!
I can laugh about it now, because I cried about it then. My husband and I reached the end of ourselves and finally surrendered out plan in exchange for God's plan. As God continued to grow and stretch our faith and trust in Him, it became clear that there are very specific principles that God has called us to live by when it comes to our finances. We have lived and walked in God's faithfulness. I can tell you with absolute certainty that when you are truly rooted in God's love and His promises that you will bear good fruit.
I'm here because I know how hard it is to take the first step. I'm here because I know the value of having someone bear witness to your struggle, and more importantly bear witness to your testimony! I'm here because I have been where you are and because I believe you're ready to level up!
