Raising Financially Healthy Kids

This seminar will provide valuable information, tips and "hands-on" strategies for teaching and training your kids to have a healthy, biblically-based perspective of money and to learn to manage it wisely at an early age.

Surveys show that most parents want their kids to learn to be wise with money but less than a third are actually doing something about it.  Many admit they just don't know where to start or they had few good role models when they were kids.  Dave Briggs teaches Raising Financially Healthy Kids which is a fun seminar that will provide the following ... A process for doing allowance well ... a way to teach your kids a good work ethic ... a method for starting a kid-friendly budget ... ways to avoid materialism and an entitlement attitude in your kids, instilling an attitude of generosity and much much more.  Parents who have attended this seminar in the past have said ... "If I knew it was going to be this good I would have invited a bunch of my friends!"

The next seminar will be held at the Glendale Campus on two consecutive Wednesday nights, August 15 and 22 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. There is no cost to attend and it is open to the community ... so feel free to invite family and friends. Unfortunately, we cannot provide childcare for this event.

Financial Planning Ministry (FPM) ... Creating Wills & Trusts
Enrich, in partnership with Financial Planning Ministry, regularly makes available the opportunity to obtain a Will or Trust at NO COST to you.  As a ministry, our only request is that you seriously consider leaving at least a small portion of your estate to God’s work after you pass.

This is a great opportunity since many people who know they need a will or a trust put it off due to the cost involved.

The process involves attending a 75-minute seminar to learn about wills, trusts and estate planning and then signing up for a one-on-one session a couple of weeks later to create your will or trust.  

The next seminar is planned for the Gilbert Campus on Sunday night, September 30, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.   Anyone interested in finding out more information can email: Enrich@CentralAZ.com.
