As a staff member of NewSpring Church, I am able to provide FREE one-on-one financial counseling for hundreds of people each year.

Are you ashamed of your parent's financial management? Resolve to break the cycle with your family.
Are you ashamed of your own financial management? It's time to have your IHHE Moment and change the story!
You CAN do this! I believe in you.
