I don't know about you - but honestly, my family is not doing the best in the financial area. We live paycheck-to-paycheck, we don't have any savings and most of the time we are just getting by. We have debt and I know we don't have the financial savvy to seem to get out of it. I'm honestly stressed constantly about money and I have grown to hate it with a passion. My husband and I have taken turns paying bills and trying to get out of debt, but we haven't had much success.

So when I was offered this book, I thought that I would give it a chance. I completely connected with Tristi and realized that we are in much of the same place that her family is/was. It was empowering to read through the book and realize that there are things that my family can do to get out of the financial mess that we have put ourselves in. It's scary. Finances are just completely scary to me and I'm still working myself up to taking control.  I really appreciated the way the book was written for women and that there is an emotional side of finances that we need to learn to work with.

I was taken back a little bit with how the book was written. Basically it is written as a conversation between Tristi and Brett & Ethan and that was a little different for me. But as I read through the book, I really appreciated the tone and the way it was conveyed. I could completely understand what Tristi is going through because my family is too. I really appreciate the courage that Tristi has taken to put herself out there and it helps me to realize what is possible. I appreciate not only the advice, but all the strategies and tools that is offered to help each family, in their own circumstances, get out of debt and take control of their finances. I love that its not just a sales-pitch - Tristi is actually going through the strategies herself and we can watch and learn along with her.

This was a quick read for me - but it has left me with a deep desire to take control. Even though this book was written for women, I am going to encourage my husband to read it. In the past, we have taken turns controlling the finances, but I think its time that we do this together. I'm still reaching for the courage to take control, but I think this book is really going to empower me to make it work.

I would highly recommend picking up this book, especially if you are ready to take control of your finances. There is hope for all of us.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review, but this did not influence my opinion.
