Let me commend to you a new book by Kathleen Rehl, Moving Forward on Your Own: A Financial Guidebook for Widows. Kathleen, a fee-only financial planner, was my guest on my last teleconference. (See here for my brief summary of her comments.) I bought the book after the teleconference, and it’s a wonderful resource. A widow herself, Kathleen has put together a book which is both artistic and practical. Several sections of the book would be good for anyone, such as “What’s Your Money Style.” She says, “Ultimately, it’s not about the money. Rather, it’s about understanding your money and how you react so you recognize your natural inclinations toward spending, saving, giving, and investing, and what’s motivating those habits.” That’s something we all need to work on.

Thanks, Jennifer! I’m enjoying reading the other CCblogs, too.

Just saw you joined the Christian Century blogging network — congrats on that! When I follow wordpress tags, I find that the CCblogs are the ones I’m most often looking at. Of course, I’ve enjoyed reading your stuff since having class with you, but smiled when I saw your name on the list!
