Episode 19: The Positive Financial Effects of a Recession
As 2023 starts to wind down and 2024 approaches, it’s natural for you to be in a season of reflection. How have you done on your goals for the year? Is there anything you wish you could have done or just done differently? Are you already thinking about what you want to accomplish in 2024?
A huge part of planning involves finances. Money is a necessary evil and is something that we are given and asked to be good stewards of by our Heavenly Father. It’s really easy for us to think about financial planning—and it’s a whole other ballgame to actually follow through with planning for our futures.
To help you as you wrap up this year and plan for the next one, we are dedicating the month of October to talking about financial planning—what it looks like, how you do it, and why it’s so important.
