Jonesboro, Ga.

Since the downturn in the economy, many families have struggled to maintain their previous standard of living.  This has caused numerous families to accumulate debt to the point that it seems there is no way out.  Statistics indicate that 85% of divorces can be attributed, at least in part, to financial problems. Life and Money Matters strives to guide families through these very difficult times and to get them on a path to prosperity.

The Mission of Life and Money Matters is to instruct, educate and coach individuals in the areas of personal finance and estate planning, using practical and concise strategic concepts.  The programs available range from those designed to help newlyweds learn to work together to avoid the pitfalls of accumulating debt to those created to guide families who need advice on saving and estate planning.  Life and Money Matters is grounded in a Christian philosophy that incorporates the teaching of God’s Word, by developing a plan of financial stability, saving and charitable giving.  Life and Money Matters sells no products, they just provide educational and financial information.
