Avoid Christmas Debt with Neile Simon

October 22, 2018

Don’t look now but the Christmas shopping season is just ahead. That’s the time of year when we throw caution to the wind and the budgets out the window, even though some of us still haven't paid off last year's credit card bills.  Millions of Americans will go into hock this Christmas, but you don’t have to be one of them. On this MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore talk to Neile Simon of Christian Credit Counselors about how you can avoid Christmas debt. 

Then, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following: 

  • If you're concerned that a family trust isn't set up regarding the portions allocated to different family members, what's your recourse?
  • If you believe in tithing but are wondering about a suggestion to cut back on tithing long enough to pay off a debt, what does the Bible say about this?
  • If you've tithed a long time but are still in debt, what words of encouragement do you have?
