Managing money together can be a source of great collaboration or conflict in marriage. This segment can help you start building a foundation of healthy communication, understanding, and planning for your current and future financial situation.
From the spiritual principles to practical tips, you’ll be able to explore your perspectives on money and begin establishing a plan for managing your family finances together.
The segment starts by unpacking our value as human beings created by God, and it explains how our understanding of our value can shape the way we view and handle our finances.
As presenters in the segment, Chris and Jessie have learned time and time again that the root of their money struggles and fights is often a desire to find meaning and purpose in material things rather than their standing in Christ.
When they got curious about those struggles and started to talk about them, they gained the skills to navigate their challenges in new ways.
This segment also includes tips on how to talk about money, how to resolve conflict, and a few practical tools our presenters used over the years to stay organized and steward their resources responsibly.
Chris and Jessie Wiegand were married in 1996. They are the parents of five creative, kind, and hard-working kids and the devoted grandparents of a growing number of adorable babies. As devoted servants of Christ, they’ve served in a variety of ministries to couples, families, and youth, and they’ve accompanied several couples through marriage prep using Prepare Enrich.
Professionally, Chris works as a Weld Auditor at Stellantis, a Detroit-area automotive manufacturer, and Jessie is the Director of Marketing & Creative for The Marriage Group. They’re enjoying this season of life as they continue to cultivate meaningful relationships with each other, their kids, and their community while continuing to ask God, “What’s next?”
