Story of Hope

Shannon’s Story

Shannon was recently retired and wanted to start her own business. She decided to enroll in the Faith & Finances® class to learn how to manage finances. Shannon is married, but she and her husband never discussed finances and kept their finances separate. After a few classes, Shannon wanted to discuss God’s principles of finances with her husband, but she was afraid he would reject it. Much to her surprise, he was quite willing to listen. Shannon wrote the following email to the facilitator: “Thank you for your support. I was feeling a little discouraged, however the Lord has allowed my husband and I to have real financial discussions for the first time in 28 years of marriage.”
