I strongly believe that God should be included in every aspect of our lives – and our finances are no different. Whenever I plan my life around God, it turns out so much better than when I focus on money, success, or the pursuit of happiness. The amazing thing is, when we make decisions that glorify God and serve other people, we end up benefitting significantly ourselves.
The following list of personal finance blogs include God in the journey to financial independence. Although God may not be mentioned in every article, he is certainly important to these authors. Check out these blogs and share any others you may have heard about in the comments section below.

I enjoy the recognition that this blogger has made about wealth – it is really not that important in the big scheme of things. Although money can make live better, it should not become the focus of life. Check out this post on Bible verses dealing with wealth.
