Day 6, Tips to Teach Your Girl About Money: No Cash, No Carry {#youandyourgirl}

Day 6- Tips to Teach Your Girl About MoneyI had found it! After having used furniture for quite some time, I was more than ready to buy a new couch. Not only was the sofa big enough to have our whole small group sit on, it was on sale! I couldn’t wait to get home and give Greg the great news!

But the news I thought was so great, he didn’t. We had a principal we were living by: if we couldn’t pay cash, we couldn’t carry the purchase home.

I knew that is how we did things, but I thought the whole premise was to avoid interest. This store offered no interest for six months! Free money!

I quickly learned interest wasn’t the only thing we were avoiding. Greg was helping us to avoid debt as well. Romans 13:8 says, “Owe no one anything, except to love each other…” It wasn’t only a matter of not paying money to use money. The goal was to not owe anyone anything.

I was so disappointed that day, but can I just tell you 26 years later, I am so happy we lived out this principal of no cash; no carry. If it is worth having, it is worth waiting for.

As the credit card applications fly into my mailbox for our adult children, I share with them Paul’s wise words. Be a debtor to no one.

What people are saying

"Lynn Cowell is Proverbs 31 Ministries hidden gem and best kept secret. Lynn has a God given gift to connect with and relate to teen girls and moms when she talks about Jesus’ radical love for us, purity, friendships, guys, and all the other sacred and messy stuff in between. Lynn is making a huge impact in churches across the nation. Of all the conferences I’ve attended including nationally offered conferences, Lynn’s messages by far packed the biggest punch. Her words are God’s truth woven with her experiences from the wellspring of her love for Jesus and are conveyed in such a way the audience is left hungry for more and inspired to implement what they’ve learned."
