Although the internet is a great resource to get you up and running with a family budget, sometimes a quiet seat with a good book is the best way to lend your financial goals longevity.
Absorbing the material from a well-written personal finance book can boost the probability of succeeding at your goals. Who doesn’t want success??!
Here are some great, extremely helpful budgeting books that I can personally recommend:
Money, Possessions, and Eternity by Randy Alcorn
The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey
The Complete Financial Guide For Young Couples by Larry Burkett
This book is a must-have for any young couple, full of timeless truths. My husband and I read this guide as newlyweds and it provided a solid foundation for wise spending, saving, and investing. I’m so thankful that we were given this book early in our marriage!
Why a budgeting book?
Although there are plenty of good and free online personal finance resources, often times a book brings a renewed focus that isn’t easily acquired through simpler sources.
All of the books above are classics that have been proven to succeed. They have withstood the test of time and review. These carefully crafted resources have produced inspiring results for families across the globe.
Plus, a book can be lended to a friend in a similar situation, providing for instant camaraderie. Guess what? Having a friend on the same plan increases the likelihood of you both achieving your goals. Woohoo!
