Lesson 1 - Overview & PDF


Are you struggling with any kind of trial right now — financial or otherwise? One of the most encouraging verses in the Bible is Romans 8:31 — “If God is for us, who can be against us?”

During this week we will… learn that there is always hope because God is for us! He uses trials to produce “proven character” in our lives, which will bring us to “hope.” So don’t give up. Hope is on the way!

By the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate areas of strength and weakness in personal finance through the MoneyLife Indicator
  • Memorize one of the three Bible verses for this week
  • Understand God’s heart regarding hope through learning resources and application exercises
  • Start creating a realistic spending plan using your preferred budgeting tool.

    As explained in "How This Course Works," we recommend that you write your notes/responses directly in the online platform. This is the easiest way to save your entry when you move to another section or exit the course. 

    However, there are other options when completing the homework part of the lesson. If you want to write your answers out by hand, simply download the PDF and print a hard copy. Or if you prefer to type your answers into the PDF, be sure to save the file to your hard drive after entering any data. Otherwise, your answers/responses in the PDF will be lost.  

    Please remember that the MoneyLife content is copyrighted. Therefore, you should only print the PDFs for your own personal use.
    If you have trouble downloading the PDFs or savings your notes/responses, please contact Crown's Client Services team for assistance (ClientServices@crown.org or 800-722-1976).

    One of the assignments in this first lesson is to complete the MoneyLife® Indicator. MLI is a unique assessment designed to determine your financial health from a biblical perspective. (Please note: The MLI website is separate from this course. Therefore, it’s important that you create an account on the MLI site in order to refer back to your report throughout this course.)
