Many people are afraid to talk about MONEY. But God mentions money hundreds of time in the Bible. If we listen to Him and study His Word, we can begin to understand the principles of how money works. He created them for His purposes!! Bottom line God wants to Bless you so you can be a Blessing to others - Genesis 12.2 (NASB)
Keith Moore is the founder and president of Moore Life Ministries and Faith Life Church of both Branson, Missouri and Sarasota, Florida. Two of the greatest emphases of Brother Moore's ministry are the importance of the written Word and the necessity of being led by the Spirit.
Having traveled extensively across the US and abroad for over 30 years, Keith and his wife Phyllis minister strongly on such areas as love, faith, healing, prosperity, and honor.
Their heart is to see the lost saved, the sick healed, the distressed relieved, the broken restored, and the discouraged empowered to victory.
Brother Moore says, True Christianity is not the formal, powerless thing that so many have come to know. Real fellowship with the living Christ, the Anointed One, results in the destruction of every bondage, the removal of every burden, and the fulfillment of every good desire.
There is no life so exciting as the victorious life that is true Christianity. To God be all the glory!
I would suggest to begin the renewing of your mind in the area of finances by listening to Keith Moore explain how and why God blesses us in the audio series called - The Abundant Life
From there you will find plenty more resources from Moore Life Ministries to help you grow your finances in a positive direction that results in a you being Blessed to be a Blessing.
One of the greatest teachers today on budgeting and getting out of debt is Dave Ramesy.
This is how he describes his ministry on his website (www.daveramsey.com):
"I formed The Lampo Group in 1992 to counsel folks hurting from the results of financial stress. I’ve paid the "stupid tax" (mistakes with dollar signs on the end) so hopefully some of you won't have to. I wrote the book, Financial Peace, based on all that Sharon and I had learned, and I began selling it out of my car. With a friend of mine, I started a local radio call-in show called The Money Game, now nationally syndicated as The Dave Ramsey Show.
Many companies define success based on the dollars coming in, but at The Lampo Group we define our success by the number of lives changed: listeners getting out of debt, readers taking their first Baby Step and saving $1,000, FPU graduates investing for their future. We learned early on that if we help enough people, the money will come. Our mission statement isn't just lip service—it's our mantra:
'The Lampo Group provides biblically based, common-sense education and empowerment that gives HOPE to everyone in every walk of life.'"

Kenneth and Gloria Copeland
Kenneth and Gloria Copeland understand just how life-changing the message of faith is. They started out just like any of us—struggling with continual lack, debt, sickness and discouragement.
Then they decided to trust God and base their lives on His Word. If a situation in their lives didn’t line up with what they read in the Bible, they changed what they did. Every time. That decision made all the difference. They soon began to experience THE BLESSING—joy, peace, freedom, health and love—in every area of their lives. And as they witnessed their lives changing, they were eager to tell others.
Whatever your need financially, God's Word is the answer.

31 Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (NASB)
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed. (NASB)
37 ... in all these things we are more than victorious through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, 39 height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord! (HCSB)
