"Living Inspired and Financially Empowered is a down-to-earth, well-written primer which shows that real financial planning is not only about investing but also about determining and implementing your life goals.I bought multiple copies to give to family and friends because, as this book makes clear, living well is about so much more than money." ~ Karen


"I was blown away when I read Amy's book, Living Inspired and Financially Empowered. I was recently retired  and enrolled in a Certified Financial Planner curriculum in which she was an instructor. I was disillusioned by some of the tactics I had witnessed by financial advisors taking advantage of vulnerable investors. Her book is centered on the spiritual relationship with money and self as a foundation for investing for the future. She restored my faith in financial planning." ~John

"In Living Inspired and Financially Empowered, Amy Jo Lauber presents the challenging topics of faith and finance in a bold but delicate manner. She supports and encourages the reader to understand their own personal faith and financial environment. By reading this book and using the Peace & Abundance Workbook, I was able to gain significant perspective and control of my own finances through faith. I used to see religion and money as opposing topics. Thanks to Amy Jo's book and workbook, I now see them as important resources used to complement the other." ~Cathy Jo
