After graduating three of my kids and seeing two more of them employed, I now believe that the financial education I gave my kids was even more important then I originally thought. The Bible devotes so much time to discussing money and possessions and with good reason. Our relationship with money can make or break us. That's why I wanted to talk about teaching finance to kids in this episode.
