Responsible and Generous Living in Early Adulthood

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. – Mark 12:42

Welcome to 2 Copper Coins

Welcome to 2 Copper Coins, we’re glad you stopped by.

If you would like to read a detailed list about why we wanted to start 2 Copper Coins read this 5 Reasons We Needed to Start This Blog.

Here’s the short version:

We both feel called to ministry, and we work for nonprofit organizations. Upon entering the nonprofit world, we realized a substantial salary was not a dream we could hold on to. After reading many different financial blogs and listening to advice from faith-based financial gurus (see Dave Ramsey) we noticed a lot of the foundational advice out there is about how to increase ones market value and make more money. For those of us in the helping professions, that’s not always an option. We want to hear about finances, being practical and generous, but spoken to our reality – the reality of working for a nonprofit organization. Our jobs give us a high level of emotional fulfillment but they don’t load up our coffers. Even so we feel we have more than enough to live a great life, and be incredibly generous along the way. Many of our peers feel this isn’t possible, that living comfortably and generously can’t  go hand in hand for those who choose lives of service. We are here to challenge that notion.

Here are a couple posts that will introduce you to our basic financial philosophy: How to Form a Budget  and Welcome to Our Home
