Pastor Hamilton says, “Joy and contentment are found in simplicity and generosity, in faith and in pursuing your purpose in life.” He explains, with personal illustrations, how people experience present day difficulties and the joys that come—many times in unanticipated ways—through simplicity and generosity.

The biblical verses and illustrated points function together, giving a balanced approach toward money and living a God-pleasing, purpose-filled life. The reader will find thought-provoking questions and practical planning principles throughout the book, including: Six Financial Planning Principles, Budget Worksheet, Five Steps for Simplifying Your Life, and Three Keys to Overcoming Fear. These, along with the Financial Management Assessment Tools, offer a foundation for creating a personal plan.
