Finding God’s Purpose for Your Money by Josh Lawson

(Franklin, TN) Clear Day Publishing announces the December 15th release of REALIGN: Finding God’s Purpose for Your Money by Josh Lawson. REALIGN was written with a passion to see people’s identity, purpose, and relationships restored by realigning their hearts to God’s plan for their finances. REALIGN goes beyond the surface level symptoms and addresses the deeper issues. The power of this book is that it focuses on bringing God into every financial decision.


What makes REALIGN unique is its emphasis on digging deeper into God’s Word, living for His Kingdom and not our own, and following His leadership in our financial decisions. It deals with the whole person, not just their finances, addressing the foundational issues that cause poor financial decisions. Additionally, it focuses on living simply and giving generously, inviting the reader to live open-handed.


Author Josh Lawson serves as Director of Community Engagement at Antioch Community Church in Waco, Texas, where he oversees the Financial Restoration Ministry and Impact Waco – the local holistic transformation branch of Antioch. Josh and his wife, Jenny, have counseled and taught thousands of people from all over the world, with the desire for people to walk one step closer with God through their teachings.


“As we place Jesus at the center of our financial lives and decisions, we are affirming our relationship with Him, and our decisions become more about what we can do to advance His Kingdom and His glory here on the earth. The purpose of our finances is to know Him and make Him known. That is its true purpose!” explains Lawson. “God has planted dreams inside of each of us, but all too often our inability to get our finances in order keeps us from seeing those dreams accomplished. I want people to know that they can make an incredible impact while here … and that impact will echo in eternity.”


Also releasing January 1, 2015 is the REALIGN Financial Class Curriculum by Josh and Jenny. It comes complete with the REALIGN book, Leader Guide, Participant Guide, Journal, 8 DVD and audio teachings, and online access to forms and resources for churches, organizations, and individuals to begin life-changing financial classes.


Jimmy Seibert, Antioch Community Church Pastor in Waco, Texas, and author of PASSION & PURPOSEprovides the Foreword for the book and shares, “REALIGN was written with heaven and eternity as the foundation and where radical giving is more important than creating wealth and stability. It provides very concrete and practical ideas/instruction/coaching so people can build their lives around Jesus and His purposes and not just self-interest. When that happens at a financial level, it will happen at every other level, and we will see the Kingdom of God made real.”


Many luminaries are giving their endorsement for REALIGN:


“Over the years we have worked as a team to renovate hundreds of homes that were in pretty bad shape. While those homes needed work both superficially and internally, we have come to see that many peoples’ money problems start from the inside out. Josh has discovered the balance between dealing with the deeper issues of the heart and mind, while also giving practical help. If you are looking at your financial house and realizing that it needs major help or even a minor repair, then we highly encourage you to read REALIGN and DO WHAT IT SAYS. You won t regret it.”
– Chip and Joanna Gaines, Hosts of popular TV Show


“I eagerly read REALIGN: Finding God’s Purpose For Your Money because I know and respect the Antioch Community Church culture where Josh Lawson leads. I love Josh’s challenge to live into the adventure that Jesus invites all of his followers to experience. His writing encouraged me to respond more fully to Jesus’ invitation and listen less to the culture that tells me to prioritize my own comfort and security.”    – Todd Harper, President, Generous Giving


Josh and his wife, Jenny, live in Waco, Texas, where they raise their two sons, Asher and Jack. Josh is also the author of Don’t Get Suckered: How to Survive College Debt Free … and with Your Shirt.
