This is an introduction to the purpose and intent of this Banking Basics, for Believers.

I've worked in the banking industry, for two large banks, for over ten years.

I  have come to the conclusion that many people have little knowledge of banking, the workings of a bank, and the basic facts they need to know in order to navigate these waters smoothly.

This is especially frustrating for people today as these topics are often no longer taught in schools, and many parents aren't equipped to train their children on these matters. Many people are left to fend for themselves in a mine field of complicated disclosures and legal regulations.

This work is written first and foremost to the audience of spirit filled believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and secondly to anyone who would seek to learn the basics of finances and the banking world.    

The body of Christ is under mandate through the parable of the talents[1] to act responsibly in the area of finance. Only by treating money God's way, as your servant and not your master will you be able to have truly spiritual use of it. God's plan for money is that it be used to fund and further His Kingdom and provide abundantly for the children (You and Me) that He loves so much.

You must have money and use it accurately in order to Master Money. 



The underlying heart of this book and reason for its existence is found in 2 Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” It is through understanding money and our modern monetary system that we will be able to use it to fund and further the Good News of the Kingdom of God.
            
Therefore we will discuss the basics of banking to give you a foundation on which you can begin to build a solid financial house. I will introduce you to basic principles to live by. Then I will discuss banking products. I will also discuss some of the pitfalls people find themselves trapped in and how to avoid them. I will then give some tips on getting out of trouble.

Finally I have included some supplemental material to help further you’re your understanding if you so desire.

* Due to privacy, the stories in this book are not of any one person, but illustrate the types of things real people have gone through.

*Also due to constant changes keep up to date with news releases and watch your banks disclosure mailings, this information is as current as the publish date.

*Some very serious changes are happening in the US Economy. As I wrap up this book the field is set for the US dollar to lose its’ status as the reserve currency of the world. The world could in the near future switch to a new currency all together. The stage is set for the end times and the rapture of the church. There is no saying that we may not be using a one world currency before the rapture happens.

God’s principles work in all situations at all times.


The beautiful thing about this book is that it has been written using principles as well as facts and data. All of the things I teach here could just as easily be applied in any other society where banking occurs, and in any currency. Have faith in God. Pray in the Spirit.


Walk in The Blessing. Be empowered to prosper with good success!

Writing Craft: Getting UnStuck

Getting UnStuck - Story Structure Guiding The Path It quite common, especially for Pantsers (those who write by the seat of their pants with no real outline or plan ahead of time), to get stuck in your story. At some point, we hit a roadblock, writer's block, and can't think of what the story should be next.

Story Structure Clues

This is, in part, because we don't start with the outline that the stricture Outliners do. We can't even comprehend where the story will be going in order to outline.

However, if we have an idea of the path (the skeleton of the structure), we can start to see a way through the hazy fog of the future. But even then, we can get stuck like I did last night.

I'd written my way through and just couldn't imagine what needed to happen next. I know where the next major plot point is going to be and what (generally) will happen (Destiny is caught by the FBI but Ash escapes). But it's way to early to write that in the story timeline. If I wr…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

The Future of Work: Is being a writer (artist, musician, creative) an impractical career?

In a writers group on Facebook, a young writer asked (edited):
How do you respond to family members saying that being a writer is impractical? This is a great question. When I was going to college I stopped pursuing music and theater because it didn't seem to lead to a "practical career". I got bogged down in other things and eventually dropped out (after six years and 78 units). But times are changing and we're in a new type of revolution.

So, what do you think?
What is the future of work? How would you respond?
What is impractical, what does that even mean?First, you reply:
You said 'impractical' when I think you meant 'I'm Practical'. The root of Impractical is Practical, or to be "not-practical". The word practical is derived from the root word PRACTICE.
practicale "of or pertaining to matters of practice; applied,"  All careers require a great deal of practice, hard work, study of the chosen field, and many small wins before th…

Writing Craft: Show / Don't Tell

Lessons I've learned about writing...

In the world of creative writing, no phrase or lesson is more repeated than the famous:
Show Don't Tell What does that mean, exactly? It means don't give me a fact but show it to me. Let the actions of the character tell me he's nervous. Let the characters actions and motives be so tied to the setting, that they direct what details I get to see.


Read this:

Dr. Briar sat nervously on a hand-made leather chair with mahogany inlays. 
Now read this:

Dr. Briar sat fidgeting in a hand-made leather chair, rotating his middle finger around on the mahogany inlays. 
What's different?

Dr. Briar sat nervously on a hand-made leather chair with mahogany inlays.  Dr. Briar sat fidgeting in a hand-made leather chair, rotating his middle finger around on the mahogany inlays. 
We show him fidgeting and rotating his finger, this gives us more reason to talk about the inlays. But could this be better? Sure, there are a thousand ways to write this sent…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…
