Over the past few years I have been on a journey to learn more and more about what God has to say about money. And then I met Bob Lotich.

Bob is the founder of the biggest Christian Personal Finance site, Seedtime.com, where he teaches on biblical principles surrounding personal finance.

As Bob’s business was growing, Bob felt this nudge from God to take some time off…a full year actually. When Bob first shared his story with me, I could not believe what he did, the faith he had, and the unexpected result God had in store for him.

The Show Notes

What if God spoke to you and told you to take a year off from work?

Not in a few months or years from now, but right now?

This is exactly what happened to the founder of Seedtime.com — a Christian personal finance site dedicated to teaching biblical principles about money.

During the interview, Bob shares how he was just coming off another great year in his business when he felt the nudge from God to take a year off.

Timing could not have been worse for Bob when he felt God call him to do this, but he followed what he felt he was commanded to do.

Did everything turn out just like you would expect? 

Of course not.

But what Bob and his family gained was far greater than they could have ever imagined.

Chris (Peach) Petrie is a personal finance expert, money coach, speaker and podcaster.

In 2011, Chris and his family were exhausted from living paycheck-to-paycheck and facing a mountain of debt. They started going against the society standards of misbehaving with money and made the decision to take back control of their lives and money. Within seven months they paid off $52,000, started saving like crazy and began building real wealth.

The word spread fast and Chris started showing friends how to create a budget over dinner. Soon after he started showing their friends how to do the same and eventually Chris started teaching personal finance classes around the community. As the need for the classes grew, Chris launched Money Peach in 2015.

Money Peach was created to help everyday people remove the stress and fear of money by showing them how to save more, make more, and keep more of their money.

Chris Peach has been featured in places like Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and CheddarTV.

When Chris isn’t at “work” he can be found at the Crossfit gym or riding on the fire truck — Chris is also a full-time firefighter in Phoenix, Arizona.
