“Faithful Finance”


The book for review is “Faithful Finance: 10 Secrets to Move From Fearful Insecurity to Confident Control” by Emily G. Stroud. This book falls in the genre of religion, Christian life and professional growth.

Meet our author, Emily G. Stroud, a financial advisor who has decades of helping people learn how to be smart with their money. As a mom, wife and a Christian she experiences what we all experiences with our own family when it comes to money.

This book, as the title says, gives us 10 ways to help us be better when it comes to finance. These include hiring a professional and why, learning how to spend not more than what you earn, the various insurances out there, saving money for college and a host of other things.

There is even a section on how God and our faith comes into the equation which can shed light on what is important, what our priorities are and how to make them work together.

Usually when I receive a book for free to review I end up passing it along. I will keep this one instead. There is so much information between the covers of this book. And while you might not need to know all that is inside I am pretty sure you will find information that pertains to you.

The book also has charts you can use to help work on the subject matter it pertains to. Emily even leaves her email in the back so you can get copies of charts if you want that for your own usage. The links in the back I found very useful to find out more about finance and how to make it work for me.

This is a good book to pick up to get you started on making better and smarter money decisions.

This book was received for free in exchange for an honest review.

“The Handyman”

The book for review is “The Handyman” by Bently Little. It falls in the genre of fiction and supernatural.

Meet Dan, a young boy who lives with his parents and brother in California. They are a close-knit family that does everything together. One a summer trip they decide to buy a small vacation home in Arizona. That was their first mistake.

The house they buy is a prefab house that one has to put together. Enters Frank, a man who lives across from their property, who is hired to put their house together. He did his own and it looks okay. But Frank is no ordinary man. According to his family he came back from Viet Nam not right. But he was already not right before going overseas.

Things start going bad inside the house and while Frank didn’t do a great job they deal with it. But then Dan starts seeing shadows in the small home. On one occasion they find dead dogs underneath the floor. Frank. Everything going wrong now leads to Frank.

The mishaps get worse when one day Billy, in a fluke accident, dies. It doesn’t stop there. The deaths continue. And that is just a part of what is going on.

This was a book I could not put down, I needed to know what was going to happen. But I am not surprised. I been a follower of Mr. Bentley for a long time now and he has never disappointed me and this book is no exception. It will take you through a different amount of emotions. The pace is amazing as well as the twist and turns that will make your skin crawl. Well done, again, sir.
