Crown Financial Ministries – Howard Dayton of Crown Ministries and Larry Burkett of Christian Financial Concepts merged their organizations in 2000 into one that teaches money management to individuals in small group settings. They were pioneers in the area of talking about money in a church setting, which often seems taboo. Not just a set of books, this is a world wide ministry that wants “to see the followers of Christ in every nation faithfully living by God’s financial principles in every area of their life.” This is a great way of focusing on your budget with others to keep you accountable.
Dave Ramsey – If you are more interested in doing it yourself and not in a group setting, Dave Ramsey has a good plan. “If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.” His personal story is an inspiring one failure and redemption. Some people may think you are cuckoo, but if you are disciplined and focused, his plan can work for you.
The GOOD Book (Get Out Of Debt) – This is one you may not have heard about. Geared toward women, Pam Young is one of the original SHEs (sidetracked home executives) and is a friend of the FlyLady. Funny and down to earth, Pam helps you get your family finances in order, one baby step at a time, while keeping your inner child in check.
