Section 1—Getting Debt-Free—Austin, lays out the reasons why we need to get out of debt, gives some suggestions on how to do it, and does it all based on God’s money principles.Section 2—Saving for Future Needs—Austin talks about the importance of saving for emergencies, on-going expenses, college, and retirement and why we must pay ourselves first.Section 3—Investing Your Surplus—I was surprised that we didn’t get to this until chapter 9, but Austin does a great job laying out why getting out of debt and building savings needs to be handled first before you invest in anything else. This section is mainly focused to various types of mutual funds and how to pick the right ones for you.Section 4—Diversifying for Safety—God is very clear about dividing our portions and this section talks about the various options within mutual funds, bonds, the stock market, etc.Section 5—Retirement Countdown—In section 5, Austin talks about the differences between various retirement instruments and plans. Austin helps you understand what the Bible says about retirement and planning for the future to help you make decisions for yourself as you approach retirement (no matter how long that is away).Section 6—Investing that Glorifies God—In the final section of the book, Austin gives her personal testimony and lays out 6 ways to know if your investments are glorifying God. This was a powerful section in the book that really makes you think about your life and what God has planned for you. If you don’t read the rest of the book, at least read this section.
