Book Review: 7 Money Rules for Life

The Great Recession that started in 2007 has thrown millions of families into financial disarray.  I have been looking for a timely book to recommend to people to provide the tools, motivation, learning, change and inspiration people need.  The wait is over.

Mary Hunt, one of the top 3 greatest personal finance writers of our age, author of over 15 books and nationally syndicated columnist, owner of a popular website, and founder of Debt Proof Living recently published a new book entitled the “7 Money Rules for Life.”

What makes Mary such a good writer about this topic?  The answer is easy, she has lived through disastrous financial decisions, learned how to dig herself out using the wisdom of the ages and has a heart for helping others recover from what that she experienced to enjoy financial hope, peace and joy of a reclaimed life.

You will read more about her story in the second chapter and throughout the book, as she pours out her heart. Her style of writing makes relating to the issues easy and will encourage readers to set the course toward a new life.

The 7 rules she lays out are not secrets or surprises, yet the supporting information is jam-packed with key information in a format that makes reading about them seem like seeing them for the first time. I became more convicted with each turn of a page even though the concepts are part of my daily life as I try to live them, and write, teach and counsel others about these issues almost every day.  Provided are countless stories and practical ideas to help anyone become transformed with wise foundational principles.

Reading 7 Money Rules for Life will equip you to improve your financial life and deal with some of the most important and foundational aspects of money. But even better, it will help you grow in your faith, wisdom, and character.

I’m very excited about this new book and hope that you will check it out (go to www.debtproofliving.com). Thank you, Mary for writing such an outstanding book and for your sacrifices to help so many people.  I will highly recommend this book to everyone, just as I do for every other book you have written!

Best Investment Book Recommendations

I stumbled upon this blog article about the Best Investment Book Recommendations. These books look to be great reads for those who want to be engaged in the investment process, whether doing it themselves or having a professional help them.

Financial planning is more of a partnership today, with clients becoming more educated about financial matters. More informed investment consumers ask their advisors better questions, and better spot when answers don’t seem right, or see warning signs about the advisor or firm they are doing business with.

Feeling versus Spending

A good friend of mine suggested that I read or recommend the book “When Spending Takes the Place of Feeling,” by Karen O’Connor, she updated it “A Woman’s Place is in the Mall . . . And Other Lies” from Harvest House Publishers. For various reasons this friend of mine had a lot of emotional issues to deal with, and instead of working through them, she shopped. This book helped her see what she was doing, and gave her the tools she needed so that she could break that cycle.
