Financing Big Projects and your FICO Score
We all have been given gifts for the specific purpose of utilizing those gifts as we interact with the world around us.

What is the secret to financial freedom? 

Ironically, the way to financial freedom is in the opposite direction from what we typically think. Veteran financial advisor Ron Blue has said, "There is a paradox in having things: The more stuff you have, the less freedom you have. That's contradictory to what we're normally taught, that if I have more stuff, then I'll have more freedom. I've come to understand that financial freedom has nothing to do with money. Financial freedom has everything to do with your belief system." In other words, the way to financial freedom is not to accumulate more money, but rather to free your affections from the money you already have. And the way to do this, the Bible says, is to give to the Lord (Matthew 6:19-20). Giving is a way of readjusting our belief system away from frightened dependence on money.
