Craig Ford

Hi. My name is Craig Ford. I’m currently on a mission to help transform how Americans manage their finances.

I teach a message of financial transformation here on this blog and at the seminars I present with churches.  The seminar is called Transforming Your Financial Diet.

Money Help for Christians will help you discover how to honor God with all your resources.  This blog promotes a frugal, simple, debt-free, and generous lifestyle so Christians can faithfully maximize their resources by putting them at the disposal of God’s Kingdom.

I have one goal for everyone who reads this blog – to change.  To be transformed.  Money can never be discussed in a vacuum apart from our faith and our spiritual life.  How we handle, manage, and interact with money is a key indicator of what is happening in our spiritual lives.

I want to help you honor God as master and demote money to the role of servant.  If used wisely, money can be a tool to bring Glory to God and help to others.  That’s what we want to do with our money – bring God glory.

My prayer is that every post will challenge you to grow in the grace of giving.  By God’s grace, I pray that God will use this blog as a driving force in the war against consumerism and materialism.

You can follow me on twitter @craigeford.

What should you expect from MH4C?

  1. Financial teachings from a Biblical perspective.  I don’t talk about what makes sense according to the calculator, but primarily according to scripture.
  2. Articles that focus on topics that impact all aspects of faith and personal finance.
  3. A behind the scenes look at finances. We’ll analyze the motivations, impulses, and the spiritual implications of our financial decisions.

Here’s a sample of some of the helpful guides/articles you’ll find at MH4C:

The statistics about Christian finances are pitiful (and I wish I could think of a nicer word).  Study after study, survey after survey, all support this one sad reality: Christians don’t spend money in ways that are different from non-Christians.  We don’t spend less on luxuries.  We don’t give more.  Statistically, we are no different.

This fact convinces me that we all (myself included) need a financial transformation.

Here’s how I plan to help you on that journey:

When you subscribe to my blog, in addition to getting access to all the free content on this blog, I’ll also give you:

*  A free electronic copy of The Bible and 21st Century Finances: Thought Provoking Answers to Nine Common Questions.  You’ll get a solid overview of a biblical view of money.  That’s a good place to start if you are new to this blog.

* A 10 week email course focused on Missional Frugality and Financial Transformation.  Each Sunday afternoon, I’ll send you an email that is designed to help you question and re-evaluate your current relationship with money.
