Understanding personality is the first step!” If you’ve ever wanted a better understanding of the personality frameworks that are popular today, this book should definitely go to the top of your must-read pile.

Published by Zondervan in the spring of 2017, this book can easily be compared to Gary Chapman’s “Five Love Languages” series, only for finances instead of relationships. Continue reading
