Dave Ramsey endorses the Money Saving Mom®’s Budget
Crystal Paine shares her secrets how to be free of the tyranny of money and debt
SEATTLE: Crystal Paine can point to her money-saving ways as a major factor in a life more focused on advancing the kingdom of God and less on earthly concerns. When she and her husband figured out how to live on under $1000 per month without debt while he was in law school, she had the revelation that a lifestyle of saving versus spending could provide a means of spiritual focus without being tied down by financial chains.
Inspired by her family’s experience, The Money Saving Mom®’s Budget (Oasis Audio, ISBN: 1613751281, $19.99, Feb. 7, 2012) is Crystal’s book of step-by-step help for turning your finances and life around. Featured in national media such as NPR, Woman’s Day and U.S. News and endorsed by Dave Ramsey, Crystal has helped busy women everywhere take control of their finances. In her new audio book she presents her most effective strategies designed for families of all sizes and income levels. With several inspiring “why didn’t I think of that?” tips plus worksheets, Crystal breaks down goals into easy, manageable steps.
The Money Saving Mom®’s Budget illustrates hundreds of ways to lower your expenses creatively and details dozens of ways to save money, stretch your dollars further, and bring in extra income. Crystal herself reads this audio book, which has been adapted from the print version to make it more suited to listening versus reading. Crystal brings passion and clarity to the chapters, more than just words on a page.
“I want to come alongside Christians and give them practical financial tools so that a new financial freedom can enable them to live a life of generous giving, rather than a life of preoccupation with money,” says Crystal. “If the people of God get their finances in order, oh, what amazing things we can do for the Kingdom of God!”
Crystal’s principles have worked so well in her own life that she is able to give all the proceeds from The Money Saving Mom®’s Budget to Compassion International, a child advocacy organization for the poorest of the world’s poor.
With over 160,000 fans on Facebook, Crystal Paine, in celebration of the release of The Money Saving Mom®’s Budget audio book, will be hosting an iPad giveaway and holding a national online Live “Mom Chat” on April 4, 2012.
