Can I finally starting buying and living like everyone else? What should I do with my money? Should I spend it or save it? These are common questions we ask when we start getting a paycheck. Getting your first paycheck can be both exciting and anxiety filled. On top of these questions, where do my finances fit in with my faith? Beyond giving 10% does God really care what I do with my money? Come find out the answers to these and other questions.
