Joshua 13:14, 33 – If We Paid Our Pastors Today in Food, Would They Starve?

Dear Reader, allow me to share this with you. Not my words, but those of my husband who is Passionate (with a capital P) about living out biblical financial principles and teaching others about honoring God with your finances.

I confess that we didn’t always live this way, trusting God and honoring Him with the first fruits of His blessings. But choosing to do things Gods way, first in our relationship and then with our money, has led us places I can’t describe.

Blessings to you!
