Personal and Family Financial Management

Prophets throughout this dispensation have counseled us to live within our means, avoid living on debt, invest for the future and protect our families. What have they said about money and spirituality—is there a connection? Is it possible to use debt wisely? How can one get out of debt if it has increased to unacceptable levels? How can a family plan its finances in these financially difficult times? What are the best ways to save for the future and avoid financial scams that sometimes seem so enticing? What kinds of insurance should one consider? How can one learn more about managing one’s finances? Answers to these and other financial questions will be explored during this session.

Ned C. Hill served as dean of the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University from July 1, 1998 to July 1, 2008. He was a finance professor at Indiana University for ten years and also an assistant professor of finance at Cornell University from 1976-77.
