Book Review- Your Money God's Way by Amie Streater


Book: Your Money God's Way Overcoming The 7 Money Myths That Keep Christians Broke

Author: Amie Streater

She is the Financial Stewardship Pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, author, financial coach, speaker, mom of three rowdy little boys, and wife to my best friend.


Book Synopsis:

Readers discover the seven "counterfeit convictions" that keep them broke and encounter proven plans for getting out of debt, building wealth, and finding financial peace.

Money habits. Where do they come from? Can you pinpoint when you started shopping to feel better, why you can’t usher grown children into financial independence, or why saving for the future is a priority in theory but not in practice?

Amie Streater, associate pastor of financial stewardship for the 10,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs, has been there. From her own experience, she knows what it’s like to look at an impossible pile of bills and a pile of toddlers wrestling in the next room. In Your Money God's Way, empowered by her own incredible journey to financial freedom, she leads readers to the dream of mastering their finances. She also expertly uncovers seven “counterfeit convictions” Christians believe that hinder their personal finance success.

Here is an overview of the 7 Myths that keep Christians broke:

  1. Unrealistic, unbiblical beliefs about the power money has to improve our lives
  2. A habit of trying to be a savior by continually bailing reckless people out of their messes, and wasting our own resources in the process
  3. Polluted theology, which we use to mask laziness and justify not working or failing to work up to our full potential
  4. Naivete` about the intentions of others 
  5. Failure to give, or a tendency to give with the wrong intentions
  6. Denial about our current circumstances or the consequences of our actions
  7. A tendency to blame God for our own impulsive behavior 

My Thoughts: Let me just preface this by saying, hold on to your seat. This book is not for the faint at heart or easily offended. Amie provides a practical,  real life, no-frills, no holds barred, no nonsense approach to awakening your spiritual outlook concerning your finances and debunking all the myths and fallacies about money.

I loved this book, I even had to get my feet out of the isle because she was stepping all over them. I love that she held nothing back and was straightforward about the truths and myths concerning our finances. She lovingly (as a mother) coaches you in the proper mind attitude of how being a good steward and handling your finances God's way will get you out of debt and change you forever.

Each chapter has important points and tips in bold contained within a box. At the end of each chapter, there is a prayer that every individual can apply to every situation in their life. Amie also shows God's Way and Solutions Steps to help you achieve spiritual victory in your finances as well as financial success. If you are like most of us and you need a spiritual and financial overhaul, I encourage you to pick up your copy today and be prepared to see your life, home, family and finances change and line up according to God's Way.
