Christian Finance Carnival #3 – Summer Favorites Edition

Corey —  June 23, 2010

       Welcome to the third edition of the Christian Finance Carnival! If you want to find out more, make sure you check Money Help for Christian’s page about the Christian Finance Carnival. This edition covers articles published in May 2010. Since summer started this past Monday, I decided to add a few pictures highlighting some of my favorite things about summer.

  • Money Help For Christians – Craig shares Bible and Money Lessons From One Year of Blogging and says, “Over the last year I’ve learned a lot about the Bible and money. In this post I share some of those lessons.”

  • Provident Planning – I’d like to share Preaching Christ Crucified with you all. Too often we fail to emphasize that Christ accomplished everything on the Cross. Yes, we must live changed lives, obey His commands, and do good works. But we are not saved by these. We need to remember that truth at all times.
  • Waterskiing (photo by Igor Bespamyatnov on Flickr)
    Ahhh…waterskiing. One of my favorite things to do in the summer!

  • Bible Money Matters – Peter presents Devotional: The Source Of Happiness saying, “What is the true source of happiness?”

  • Personal Finance by the Book – Joe Plemon asks Which Comes First: Earning or Saving? and says, “Proverbs 21:20 strongly implies that we should live on less than we earn. But what if our earnings are quite meager? Should we achieve a ‘living wage’ before trying to save? This post examines that question.”
  • Roasting Marshmallows (photo by ninahale on Flickr)
    Summertime means campfires with friends. And campfires mean roasting marshmallows (alone or for s’mores) and usually some ice cream. Good times!

  • Matt about Money – Matt Bell discusses The Master(’s) Principle which covers the benefits of patience.

  • One Money Design – Jason Price presents Money Margin: It is No Mirage! and says, “We could all use a little more money margin in our lives, right? Margin isn’t impossible if you learn to manage money based on God’s financial principles.”
  • Kayaking (photo by davichi on Flickr)
    My wife and I like to go kayaking in the summer. We’re blessed to have a nice creek near our house and several other local options that we haven’t explored yet.

           Be sure to check out next month’s edition of the Christian Finance Carnival, which should be up on July 14th over at Christian Personal Finance.

    1. Paul,
      Thanks for hosting and for the summery theme. I haven’t had any s’mores or home made ice cream yet this summer, but am looking forward to both.

    2. No problem, Joe! I’ve had s’mores and homemade ice cream already and should be having more this Saturday night. Good stuff!

    3. Thanks for the link love Paul! You gotta love the warm summer weather!

    4. You’re welcome, Peter! I like being able to get out and do stuff, but it’s been pretty hot here lately (around 90). I don’t like it quite as much when it gets that hot. :)

    5. Paul,
      Thanks for hosting!
      PNG has perpetual summer so if your ever considering a move …

    6. No problem, Craig. :) Hmmm, I think I remember reading about those downpours you get…and how would I fit my kayak on the plane?
