104 – The True Financial Meaning of Christmas

Bob and Shawn discuss meaningful, financial giving recommendations on this episode, including Donor Advised Funds, donating to a food bank, or giving coats to a homeless shelter. Unfortunately, for many, consumerism and materialism has become the true meaning of Christmas. Instead of celebrating the birth of our Lord through giving, Christmas has turned into a time of financial stress and burdens. Instead, it should be a time of peace and joy as God intended it to be. It’s time for America to again find the true financial meaning of Christmas where it’s truly about joy, meaningful giving and the gift of God’s son.

BONUS – How To Make Your Christmas Budget Go Further

Is Christmas shopping stressful? How do you get the best prices? Shawn is joined by his wife (and Bob’s daughter), Jenna, in this special Bonus Christmas episode. Jenna is usually behind the scenes of podcast editing, but wanted to step in front of the mic this time to share some of the strategies that she uses when it comes to Christmas shopping. Therefore, the flow and style of this bonus episode is completely different! They mention everything from stocking stuffers to hitting up lightning deals to try and obtain the best prices around holiday shopping.
