Episode 014: Chuck Bentley on Money in Your Marriage

chuck bentley

On this episode of the iDisciple Podcast, iDisciple CEO David Henriksen is joined by Chuck Bentley, CEO of Crown Financial Ministries and a close friend of the iDisciple Family. Chuck shares with us some of the invaluable wisdom that he and his wife Ann have gathered over the years on the intersection of marriage and finances, and introduces us to their new book, Money Problems, Marriage Solutions.

After decades in the secular business world, Chuck’s life was radically transformed when his wife convinced him to try out a Crown Financial Bible Study, where he realized he had spent his life trying to serve two masters, God and money, and failing at both. Eventually, Chuck would join the Crown Financial team and has spent most of the last two decades teaching biblical principles about finance to people all around the world.

Chuck is the author of 5 books, including the most recent book that he co-authored with Ann: Money Problems, Marriage Solutions. The Bentley’s new book was inspired by their personal journey from financial mistakes and arguments to unity and financial health. It aims to transform the lives of married couples who might be letting money rule their marriages.

We pray that the wisdom Chuck brings to today’s conversation will have the power to radically transform the way you approach relationships and your finances!
