In this episode, Art answers several money questions from More Than Money listeners.

Here are the questions we answer:

Question 1: We are starting the college search process for my child. What tips do you have for us? I don’t want her going into debt for school.

Question 2: I’m single and just starting out on my financial journey. What suggestions do you have for someone like me?

Question 3: Why do you tell us to get our company match before paying off debt?

Question 4: I love how you talk about how God designed us for generosity and that is to be our financial priority. I don’t have much money to give. What should I do?
