Seeking Wise Financial Counsel With Rachel McDonough

Faith & Finance with Rob West | Jan 18, 2023

Show Notes

Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” Those are wise words in any situation, but particularly when it comes to your finances. Are you seeking the safety of a wise financial counselor? We’ll talk about that today with Rachel McDonough.

Rachel McDonough is a Certified Financial Planner and a Certified Kingdom Advisor … and she’s seen firsthand the benefits of getting outside advice on managing money.

  • Rachel says it is especially important for Christians to seek wise counsel about their finances. She says any competent financial advisor who is confident can help you achieve your financial goals, such as planning for college or retirement. But a Christian financial adviser with a biblical worldview is really uniquely able to help you make financial decisions in harmony with the principles found in God’s Word. A Christian financial adviser will help you to listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
  • Another great example of this comes in our investing. A lot of Christians would like to invest in a way that aligns with their biblical values and not have profits in their portfolio coming from industries that violate them.
  • Of course, being a Christian isn’t enough. It’s important to understand the qualifications of an adviser before taking their advice. One way to be sure about the competence of a financial adviser is to seek out a Certified Kingdom Adviser.

On this program, Rob also answers listener questions:

  • How do you determine how best to proceed with bringing a mortgage forbearance current?
  • When does a real estate investment trust make sense?
  • When does it make sense to use investment funds to pay off credit card debt?
