     One of the top five areas that cause couples stress and arguments is finances. Regardless of level of wealth, two people often have different views and relationships with money. One may be a spender, one may be overly frugal. Also, during the lifetime of a marriage, there will often be changes in spending habits, philosophies about money and income situations. For example, the wife might drop out of the workforce to raise children for long periods of time or one spouse might lose a job and accept less income at another job.
      My guest today says that trust is important in relationships when it comes to money and that living a balanced life is important when we consider financial habits and goals. Susana Baig is the mother of seven and encourages the stay-at-home mother role, yet understands the necessity to evaluate the household situation and make changes if needed. She says finding balance and working toward a unified goal is important. What might work at one point during a marriage might need to change during another phase in marriage. Susana has many interests including natural, Christ-Centered childbirth. She hosts two blogtalk radio shows, "Biblical Pregnancy & Birth Inspiration," and "MamaBaig On The Air." She is the author of several blogs including, spiritledbirth.blogspot.com, singyourfavoritelullaby.blogspot.com, and emergencychildbirthing.blogspot.com.  Basis for today’s show: 1 Cor3:7 NLT It's not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What's important is that God makes the seed grow.
