**My thoughts**
 I love that this book dives right in to teaching children how to appreciate the value of money. It is tougher to teach us old dogs new tricks, but we can help the future generations to make better choices. A great deal of focus continues on the teen years, which is one of your last chances as parents to really make an impact on your children's spending habits.

The advice for adults covers general spending habits, planning vacations, and how to handle those inevitable battles over money that often occur within marriage partners. Devin Thorpe gives practical ideas to prevent some of the rockiness and to maintain a sense of happiness in your family. He also forces you to take a hard look at yourself and your own spending habits.

While the book is originally written for an LDS audience, who would be planning service trips, the advice is applicable to anyone who uses money. I know that my mind is spinning about ways in which I need to work on my own financial goals, and this book can help me.
