Having Fun Without Going Broke

Money|Roundtable
Guests: Evan Reedall, Brandon Wilson and Julianna Wiskow

[21:10] - 

Being financially wise — even frugal — is one thing; being cheap is another. If you want to watch your budget but don't want to be a social (or dating) killjoy, what options do you have? How can you pinch pennies while still having fun once in a while? Our panel has put some ideas into practice, and shares them in this discussion.

Prayer Pilgrimage

Guests: Jared Brock

[19:18] - 

Jared Brock needed to pump up his prayer life. So of course he did what all of us would do: he quit his job and embarked on a year-long journey around the world. OK, that's not an option for most of us. But we can learn from the experiences chronicled in his book, A Year of Living Prayerfully. Everything from hanging with monks to walking across coals to sitting down with the Pope (for real), Jared studied the practice of prayer and how to apply it to his own life. It all makes for a fascinating story.
