  1. Always interested in learning how to improve my situation, I eagerly read Michael Mathews’ book, Financially Speaking, and was impressed by what I read. Speaking from his heart and personal experience, Michael speaks about how to get your finances in order. Since financial issues frequently are at the bottom of interpersonal issues in a marriage, and stress related health issues in a body, control over finances can be at the heart of improving these aspects of life as well.

    The book is beautifully organized to cover the many aspects of financial life, starting from the negative side of the balance sheet by discussing steps to take to get out of debt, moving through managing money on a daily basis, and continuing on to preparing for the future by investing, insuring to cover unforeseen events, and teaching your children. Michael offers specifics, and references places to get help or more information. He gives clear descriptions of the reasons behind different considerations, and even includes a “dictionary” of terms.

    Financially Speaking is a good read whether you’re a novice at tackling managing your money or you’re experienced. There are some good reminders and ideas which might not yet have come to mind. And all of it is presented with a sense of joy, and personal touch, shown in the poems and anecdotes included to illustrate various points. Michael Mathews is a person of caring and integrity, with a desire to help others improve their lives. I highly recommend “Financially Speaking.

    The book is a good resource for 18 and up to understand the value of money and how to make money work for you. The first chapter laid a foundation for me to understand the intricate details of money, learn from others mistakes and not to fall into those traps. The language used in the book is relatable and I can tell a person from a generation or two before me wrote the book due to the examples and sayings used, which offered another perspective into culture that I appreciate.

    Congratulations on another good one! Although it’s been over 8 years (if not more), since I edited your first book, it was like a refresher in some ways; but also good and fresh information, for the most part. The chapters 5 thru 10 certainly increased my knowledge and were also “food for thought”. I particularly gained lots of insight from the content in chapters:

     7 – Estate Planning

     8 – The Deadly Killers – very educational and so real to our culture

     9 – The Children really resonated with me because this is something we did not get as children, but it’s such a blessing to pass it on to the youth in our families.

     10 – Self Improvement – this resonates with me because self-improvement is continuous. Your tools and tips really add to the process of the overall self-improvement journey.

    Your poems are really awesome! Definitely something you should consider in the near future. Overall, I really enjoyed it. My biggest personal takeaway is to not be anxious to get the new car and purchase a condo, townhouse, etc., again until my finances say yes, without question. In summary this is really good information and I’m sure the Lord will bless you exceedingly and abundantly because of your works – this book, which will help so many others!”

    Michael thanks for your transparency on prevalent issues that plague our society. There`s a great need for the wisdom and expertise depicted on these pages. You not only identify the pitfalls and their woes, you also gave creditable footage by providing the necessary tools to get you out and stay out of indebtedness. I also recommend this great read for young adults while transitioning into adulthood. Michael you`ve been equipped for such an awesome task, keep arming the generations to come.
