Money Doesn't Have to Be Taboo
One thing I continually see the longer I'm a Christian is how the Church avoids talking about money like it's the plague. For one reason or another this has been the norm despite how much money is talked about in scripture. However, countless Christians are struggling in their relationship with money. Tune in as I talk about why it's important to normalize conversations and vulnerability around money and what we can start doing now to create a new normal.
