With a vision to one day stay at home with my family while still contributing financially, I started a small Etsy shop from a storage closet in college. Overtime, that small shop grew and evolved into a community for young women looking for practical tools to navigate life with grit, grace, and faith. So around here, you'll find resources and tools to help you steward your home, health, and work well.
Alright, let’s talk about money, honey! 💰
Be honest – have ya ever found yourself believing one of these thoughts?
If you’re nodding your head, then this episode is for you!
In today’s episode, I’m touching on all of these as we dig into the lies that we believe about money and the 8 disciplines a financially savvy woman does (and you can do too).
These are disciplines you can use to audit your own financial health to consider what you’re already doing and what areas you could improve on.
Look, no one’s perfect (yep, spoiler alert, we’re all humans here) and chances are, you’re not going to be doing all of these disciplines right now.
So remember to take a grace-based approach.
You don’t have to have it all figured out today, but maybe there is one discipline you can start with or be working towards. Progress over perfection.

As you’re going through these, remember: you’re human. So let’s have a grace-based mindset.
We’re not going to be perfect at all of these things, but we can be empowered to work on them and take small, incremental, implementable, and imperfect steps towards better financial health.
So, without further ado, here they are:
Well, there ya have it – the eight disciplines of a financially savvy woman!
Take a moment to audit your life and ask which of these things you’re currently doing and which of them you could start implementing.
These disciplines matter because they enable you to be a good steward of your resources.
When a woman is compensated for her work and makes a profit, it enables her to build financial independence to create options for her family or future family, to provide jobs for other people, to build wealth for the next generation, to be free of debt so they can give generously, and make a massive impact supporting their community!
When you’re financially literate and know your numbers, you become a good steward and a wise investor, and as a result, you can be a world changer.
