Millenials & Money: What’s Your M.O. & Is it Working?

Financial faithfulness — how we steward the money that God allows to pass through our hands — is not easy, especially right after college. If we want to pursue a healthy approach, one of the best things we can do is take an honest look at our current habits.

  • What resonates with you from their research?
  • Do you tend to avoid money management/deal with it in a reactive vs. proactive way?
  • Is there someone you typically look to for money advice? Is this person wise?
  • How can you “start small” with investing or other steps toward a healthy financial future?
