The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Faith and Personal Finance Edition

Share Button

Due to an upcoming presentation I’m making, I’ve been looking deeply at the intersection of faith and personal finance. Can people use their personal religious convictions as a driver to improve their money matters?

I think it depends heavily on the person, but I also think the pieces are in place in many different religious traditions to use their teaching to fuel yourself to personal improvements.

Here are some articles I’ve found during this investigation that you might find interesting.
