Ask Chuck: When Should I SPEND Money?

I've been following Crown Financial Ministries for years and appreciate your advice on avoiding debt and putting God first through tithing, but is there ever a time when you SHOULD spend money?

Ask Chuck: Stock Market Is Booming. Should I Invest?

Dear Chuck, Every time I turn on the news, I hear reports about new record highs in the stock market. I have some stock investment, but wondering if I should go bigger. Is there something I should be doing to take advantage of the energy in the stock market?

Ask Chuck: Can I Afford to Have Kids?

Dear Chuck: My husband and I are talking about starting a family, and to be honest, I'm afraid to do it. We have the usual bills and some credit card debt, and whenever I see stories about how expensive kids can be, I feel so intimidated.

Ask Chuck: HELP! I'm Not Ready for the Holidays!

Dear Chuck, I cannot believe that it's Thanksgiving week, and Christmas coming in weeks. Most of the time, I feel more stressed than thankful at this time of year (unless you count how thankful I feel when it's all over!) Have any advice about making Christmas more about Jesus' birthday and less about a shop-til-you-drop time of year?!
