When I first heard the topic of this book that Erin Odom was writing, I was intrigued. I’ve always felt books on finances were rather dry and unappealing. But since I’ve been following Erin’s blog for a few years now and really enjoy her perspective on simple living, I was curious as to what her book would be like.

More Than Just Making It
As I started on the first chapter, I was hooked – I just could not put it down. It was such an eye-opener to read someone’s raw and honest sharing of financial struggles, and the story gripped me. It made me reflect on my own spending & saving habits, and to give thanks for my husband’s wise and prudent decisions over the years. Though our family is not considered wealthy, we are financially stable, and that is something that I never want to take for granted.
I can’t imagine the stress that the “working poor” in America go through. It was something I never really thought about until reading Erin’s thought-provoking book.
Her book is part memoir and part useful tips and advice.
I love how she encourages those who are financially struggling to remain hopeful and to figure out what the root issue is – whether it is a spending problem or an income problem?
Is this for you?
This book will appeal to anyone – not just those who are struggling financially but for whoever wants to be a wise steward of the resources they are blessed with. It will definitely make you think twice about spending frivolously!
We have Hope in Jesus, and I’m thankful that this book doesn’t just share encouragement, but also arms you with practical steps to take so that you can move away from financial stress towards financial success.
After reading this book, I’m inspired to relook at our budget, stash even more for emergency funds and to work towards financial freedom together so that we can bless others freely while still taking good care of our own family.
After all, everything that we have is by His grace alone.
Let’s give thanks

As we seek to manage the little that we have well, we can trust that God will always provide for our every need in every season, and His grace is more than sufficient indeed.
If you are in a season of financial difficulties, remember He is with you. May you have the courage to take steps of faith to receive help and to walk through this season, all by His grace.
