Money Wise Steward is intended to help you be a wise steward of money. I love sharing about money-saving ideas and my faith in Jesus Christ. My hope is to help inspire and give you the tools to manage money and grow in your faith.
There are a number of costs associated with running this blog — hosting, tech costs, design and development costs, and more. Sometimes when you click a link I earn a small fee from a company with no cost to you. I accept paid advertising on my blog’s sidebar and use affiliate links in posts where I see fit.
I also accept opportunities to write posts, share special offers, where I work directly with a company that pays the cost that’s involved with my time and effort. I will only accept this type of opportunity when the offer is helpful and valuable to my readers (that’s you).
I value this blog and my readers much more important than making a quick buck. I always seek to have your best interests in mind first. If it’s not beneficial to my readers, I will not post it, no matter how much money it involves.
My readers are always our first priority. I want you to be able to trust that the content you find on this blog is not influenced by money. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are solely my own and I do my best to always be honest in what I share.
Have a blessed day!
