Nothing can slowly and imperceptibly poison a marriage like unresolved financial issues. The Quick-Reference Guide to Counseling on Money, Finances & Relationships gives pastors, professional counselors, and lay helpers the information they need to help couples work through financial issues that affect their relationships. The many topics addressed include:

budgeting and cash flow compulsive spending or saving credit cards, overspending, and debt planning for large expenditures investing and retirement special concerns such as funding education, helping aging parents, and more

Each of the forty topics covered follows a helpful eight-part outline and identifies typical symptoms and patterns, definitions and key thoughts, questions to ask, directions for the conversation, action steps, biblical insights, prayer starters, and recommended resources.
