Head in a vise
These are a few of the words used by different people to describe their feelings around money. You may be surprised to know that these were feelings described by people who had a lot of money as well as those who had very little. We have found the feelings to be almost universal and String of Pearls has a passion to see that change.
String of Pearls is committed to seeing individuals obtain and live in freedom spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially. Often though, while we have seen many come to freedom in their physical, emotional, and spiritual health, finances are an area where many still struggle. There are thousands of books on how to manage money and many people have read them and aren’t able to follow through. They now know what to do with their money and the shame deepens as they make another poor investment or go back into debt…again. What is the missing link?
We at String of Pearls believe that much of the missing link is simply coming into the light. Shining it on your shame and fear and watching them disappear. What would you give to have peace around your money situation regardless of the circumstances and get rid of the blocks that keep you from having more of it?
String of Pearls is pleased to announce our Financial Freedom workshop scheduled for April 11 and 12, 2014.
In this workshop you will learn to…
- Identify faulty beliefs around money and erase their power over you
- Identify blocks to hearing directly from God and remove them
- Learn how to give without guilt
- Obtain boundaries so you are not ever manipulated into giving when it doesn’t feel right
- Identify your purpose and pick investments in line with God’s calling on your life
- Set a Biblical foundation for beliefs about money (that is guaranteed to surprise you.)
- Address and clear shame in regard to finances
- Practice listening to God
- Leave the workshop with peace
- If you wish, leave the workshop with coaching in place to solidify learning and implement new tools.
For many years our presenter, Noelle Schwantes, would have used the same terms from the top of the page to describe her relationship with money. The road to financial freedom is one she’s particularly passionate about because for years fears about money defined her every waking moment. These fears and the shame about poor money habits defined all her decisions and drove her further into poor habits to cope with the negative feelings.
At one of the worst times in her life she cried out to God. She was separated from her first husband. She shared a cramped and dingy basement apartment and was working as a server at a restaurant because she couldn’t emotionally handle the job her degree had trained her for. She was broke and driving an unsafe car and became hysterical when unplanned expenses came up. She describes waking up at night with what felt like a python curling in her belly. In a word, she was desperate. She prayed that God would teach her financial surrender or that he would allow her to die.
He didn’t allow her to die (Something you may have deduced since she’s the presenter for the workshop!) and she no longer has a snake in her belly! Instead, God taught her a series of amazing lessons that have led to freedom from compulsive spending, preparation for habits that lead to wealth, peace around finances REGARDLESS of what her bank balance looks like, and a conviction on knowing that there is work to be done and God is looking for people to financially bless. She is thrilled to get this chance to share the amazing lessons God has taught her and looks forward to see freedom spreading!

So you have decided you’d really like to do this workshop but feel some frustration because it seems like everyone who would like to teach you how to deal with money wants you to pay them thousands of dollars to do it. This workshop is different. There are limited spots as this is an experiential workshop so the $25.00 will cover materials and make sure we attract individuals who are serious about this area of freedom.
At the end of the workshop, there will be an exercise that will allow you to pay a workshop fee based on what you feel you got out of it in combination with what you feel God is speaking to your heart. We are excited about this payment plan because it means that we are accountable for delivering excellence and you are able to practice skills you’ve learned in a tangible and powerful way.
If you have ever felt fear or shame around finances. If you feel trapped because of your financial situation. If you long for things to be different. If you feel called to do something but face financial obstacles, this workshop is for you. Reserving your seat now could change your life. We look forward to seeing you there.
