Reviewed by Danita Dyess for Readers' Favorite

Pamela V. Carmichael, author of “Financial Empowerment: Realign Your Finances to God’s Will,” says that riches and righteousness go together. For those Christians that erroneously believe they must be content to serve the Lord in an impoverished state, Carmichael provides numerous teachings of the Bible about hard work and its inevitable results: financial wealth. Before it became today’s entrepreneurial buzz word, God’s Word described Multiple Streams of Income demonstrated by the virtuous woman in Prov. 31:10 - 31. Matt. 25:29 tells us that those who have money will receive more - money attracts money. Carmichael advises us to discover our calling so that we may use our God-given talents in our work. She also advises us to keep it real (realistic goals) and seek encouragement in the Lord. Readers will have their minds renewed and their finances restored.

As a reviewer of numerous Christian publications, I can attest that “Financial Empowerment” is exceptional. Carmichael’s 27 years of Christian service echoes page after page. I was impressed with the depth and breadth that she lovingly demonstrated about specific areas, e.g., God’s assignment of work, leaving an inheritance and using your money to help others. This is the author’s first book but she should consider additional outlets, e.g., training manual, workbooks or the development of a series. Carmichael is a financial services professional and she has a blog – Live Out Loud: Success by God’s Word at “Financial Empowerment” is highly recommended.
