  • Your New Money Mindset is a new way of thinking about the role money plays in our lives. Many of us live with ongoing, and often unexamined, tension related to money. Few of us have really escaped the credit-card trap or freed ourselves from worries about having enough for the future. Co-authors Brad Hewitt, CEO of Thrivent Financial, and James Moline, licensed psychologist, believe we haven’t spent enough time examining our fundamental attitudes toward money and aligning those attitudes to our core values. Before you can remake your money habits, you need to start with your heart. In Your New Money Mindset, Brad and Jim guide you through the Money Mindset Assessment, which will help pinpoint what attitudes about money you could work on in order to develop an openhearted attitude to life. The goal is to cultivate a surplus mindset that allows you to enjoy what you already have and be generous toward others. Discover today how to free yourself from the money trap and create a healthy relationship with money.

    My Review:

    This book was not quite what I was expecting. I think I was hoping for more Dave Ramsey type help. I went online and took the money mindset assessment and the results were interesting. The book focuses more on the psychological aspects of our money issues including our attitude and relationship. The spiritual aspect of the book addresses if we are truly right with God then we would have the right attitude/relationship with money. I am not sure I agree with that. I know strong Christians that struggle with money issues. Another key aspect of the book is if we give more money away then we would automatically be happier. The book easy to read and understand.

    Brad Hewitt is president and CEO of Thrivent Financial, a not-for-profit Fortune 500 organization dedicated to helping Christians be wise with money and live generously. He speaks regularly on how a redefined relationship with money can help us find and live out our call in life. He and his wife live in Minnesota.

    James Moline, PhD, is a licensed psychologist who also holds a master’s degree in theology (both from Fuller Theological Seminary). His lifelong passion for ministering to the homeless and the underserved has taken him around the globe both personally and professionally. He lives with his family in Minnesota.
