Stewardship - Personal Finance from a biblical perpective
Stewardship is a personal finance curriculum taught from a biblical perspective. With Steve Demme’s signature humility, humor, and sharp math skills, practical math instruction is combined with Biblical principles of finance and discipleship material. This edition is updated with current topics relevant to young people aged 15 and older, who are beginning to explore more independent financial opportunities and responsibilities.
What's Included in Stewardship?
There are three books that comprise the written material: the Instruction Manual, Biblical Studies, and Student Workbook. The video instruction via DVD.
Instruction Manual: This book is where you will find teaching, several examples of the new materials, and the answer keys for all 36 lessons. Study this book and watch the video instruction to learn the content of each lesson.
As this book was written, it was assumed that students would have some knowledge of algebra, and would be between fifteen and seventeen years old.
Biblical Studies: This book has two sections: one on Biblical Principles to govern our treasure, and the other on Scripture Studies to instruct our heart. As stated earlier, Jesus says in Luke 12:34, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be.” Steve’s objective in pulling these studies together is to impact our heart and our treasure (money, time, gifts, talents, and energy) with the eternal Word of God.
Student Workbook: After you’ve watched the video portion and read the Instruction Manual (along with the two Biblical Studies portions), then you are ready to begin work in the Student Workbook. Each of the 36 lessons has five worksheets per lesson, for a total of 180 student worksheets.
Each worksheet has ten questions. Questions 1-7 are taken from the math involved in personal finance, 8-9 are from the Biblical Studies, and number 10 is a discussion question to facilitate interaction between students and their parents and grandparents.
