    Nice blog. I read your helpful post on Bible Money Matters.

    In your recommended books, would you like to recommend one that’s geared particularly to young people (18-30)? In it, I recommend some of the same books you recommend, so I’d assume we’re tracking on what we believe about making and investing money.

    My book is Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It. It’s well researched and documented, but presented in an entertaining story form.

    Here’s a page with blurbs, reviews, etc.:

    Here’s the Amazon page:

    Let me know if you’re interested or want more information.

    Thanks again for your informative blog!
