Introduction

November 18, 2019

Welcome to our Summer Reading Plan. For the next 9 weeks, we will be reading through the books of Acts, Galatians, Ephesians and Philippians. We will send you the daily reading material (Monday-Friday) and questions or thoughts to prompt your personal reading. Our prayer for you this summer is that you are able to recognize God's voice as you read His word. If you have questions or need prayer as we do this together, please reach out to info@wellspringchurch.tv or visit the Blue Room this Sunday!

Week 2

December 9, 2019

Hopefully, you've been able to set up your YNAB account and have started to understand how this program can help you as you gain control of your finances. This week we will begin discussing the "rules" of YNAB and we'll be focusing on Rule One-Give Every Dollar a job. Your money is a finite resource and once you spend it, it's gone. This rule helps by looking at your money BEFORE you spend it and making sure how you spend it lines up with the obligations and goals that you have for it. Your money can work for you even if it currently feels like you are working for it.

Week 3

December 16, 2019

Last week we looked at Rule one of YNAB-Give Every Dollar a Job. If you followed along in the videos, we focused on giving the money currently in our accounts real jobs and goals. We did this by asking a question-What do I want or need my money to do before I get paid again? Rule one addresses our immediate and monthly obligations and is the foundation for budgeting with YNAB. Rule two addresses the long-term obligations that can inevitably trip up or derail a budget.

We hope that you have been putting Rules One and Two into practice as you prepare for the holidays. Holidays can be a tough time to start budgeting, so if you are finding it difficult...hang in there! Using Rule Two starting now for 2020 Holiday Spending could mean the difference between wondering how you are going to afford the gifts you want to buy and knowing what you are able to afford and spend because you've made a plan and embraced your true expenses.
