“Margin: the space on a document we have learned to reduce to get more on a page. This might get you more words on your next letter, but a lack of margin will not equal more peace in your life. After 28 years in coaching, I have learned the key is putting your players in the best position to be successful on and off the field. Utilizing God's Game Plan (the Bible) and decades of experience, Russ delivers for you the key concepts that will put you in the best position to succeed financially. He unpacks the fundamentals of your finances and delivers a set of easy to run plays that will bring you the victory of personal financial freedom. More margin—which means more life. Run well…1 Corinthians 9:24.”
—Shane Williamson, president/CEO, Fellowship of Christian Athletes
“Jesus made it clear: Moment by moment, we're either in service to God or to mammon. He made profound theology approachable in its simplicity.

For four decades, Russ and his colleagues have been the go-to source for workable strategies in the vital realm of biblical stewardship. No matter your net worth, there will be valuable discoveries waiting for you in the pages of this practical treatment of a subject that has most people more flummoxed than faithful. Give yourself the gift of a few hours with Russ and let him coach you into a new level of transformation that aligns with truth!”
—Bob Shank, founder/CEO, The Master’s Program

“My grandfather was a small business owner who was a part of the greatest generation. He told me that ‘you don’t go broke making a profit.’ Your Money Made Simple expands on this simple concept, which Russ calls the ONE KEY—spending less than you make and doing it for a long time. This book guides you through a simple, but not easy, set of steps to achieve financial freedom. The concepts are simple but our culture makes it increasingly difficult to follow them. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking peace in their financial life."
