  • COLUMN: We All Make Them

    Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

    We all face them every day. Some are small. Others are big. But they must be made.

    At times we struggle.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 gives us help in making wise decisions. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” 

    There are some things we can be certain of – God wants us to make wise decisions, to follow his guidance and for us to have clear directions.

    One financial goal for students is to have money at the end of every month. These tips from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority may help you set up a budget to track the money you make versus the money you spend.

    Knowing how and when you get your money and where you spend it is the foundation of financial planning. You create a budget by estimating how much money you’ll make each month and how much you’ll spend. It’s a great way to avoid running out of money when you need it most.
