Widows Well - Financial Feelings


Our views about money usually begin in our childhood by what we're taught or observe at home or in our communities. What messages did you receive from family or society?

  • Money is filthy riches
  • We don't talk about money in polite company
  • Money is the root of all evil
  • Don't worry your pretty little head about it, your husband will take care of it
  • Money is the man's domain
    - OR -
  • Money will help make life choices about where and how I'll live
  • Money is a neutral tool used to navigate through working life and retirement
  • Money is saved to have a cushion for unexpected expenses
  • Money is a necessary part of life that can be managed

We can change the way we think about money and utilize it as a necessary tool for our future.

  • What steps can I take to change the way I think about financial matters?
  • What do I need to learn about finances?
  • How do I plan for my financial future?
  • How do I develop a budget?
  • Why do I need to know my net worth?

"Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won't you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?" ~ Luke 14:28
