Most of us were never taught how to manage money, let alone how to do that alongside our spouse. This 3-part live workshop is designed to help couples learn how to handle money together. Through humorous stories, discussion questions, and interactive exercises, we help couples safely unpack the past, dream about their future, and craft a step-by-step game plan for the present.

Perfect for engaged and newlywed couples but also helpful for married couples who have struggled to speak a common financial language and need to get on the same page.

This 2-3 hour long workshop is perfect for diocesan/parish Date Nights, Engaged couples retreats/events, or Marriage Conferences.

Becoming a

Proverbs 31 Woman

To become a woman who embodies the virtue, beauty, discipline of the Proverbs 31 woman is a high calling indeed. Her qualities are both inspiring and convicting. Did you know that many of her qualities and most prized attributes relate to money? This was a woman who knew how to manage her family finances par excellence. Many women don’t feel equipped to manage their family finances. Or they don’t desire it because they dislike math or budgets.

What if we as women were uniquely crafted by God to be at the heart of the money entrusted to our family? In this talk, Amanda breaks down the lessons we can all take away from the beloved Proverbs 31 woman and apply them into our lives today.

This talk is for women only and is perfect for women’s conferences, events, or retreats.

This talk is perfect for small groups, large groups, conference keynotes, and more.

Our world is filled with misconceptions, myths, and lies about money. But what does the Church have to say about it? Jesus said “Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God,” but does that mean we ought to reject money?

What if God is calling each of us to grow in holiness through money? How did the saints handle their finances and transform the culture surrounding them? Join us as we explore what real financial discipleship looks like and the four tools that keep any level of wealth in good health.

This talk is perfect for conferences and events. It can be delivered in one session or split and lengthened into three separate sessions.
