Publisher's Summary

When you're trapped in a cycle of financial frustration, and you feel like you've tried everything only to end up with more month than money yet again, More Than Just Making It is your promise and pathway to thriving again.

Take it from someone who's been there. Erin Odom grew up in the private schools and neatly manicured lawns of upper middle class America but was thrown into low-income living during the economic crash. She was a stay-at-home-mom, her husband was supporting the family on a teacher's salary, and despite the fact that they had no debt to their name, they were scrambling to make ends meet. Suddenly Erin found herself standing in line for food stamps, turning down play dates because she couldn't afford the gas, and ultimately walking into bankruptcy court in the eighth month of her third pregnancy.

More Than Just Making It tells the story of their breaking point as well as the triumph of their comeback. It took hard work, creativity, and faith in God's provision to reset their bank account as well as their hearts, but ultimately they found a new way to thrive and freedom from financial anxiety. You can do the same. Learn how Erin and her family saved enough money to put $30,000 down on a home, buy a minivan in cash, and begin sending their daughter to private Christian school. More Than Just Making It will encourage listeners to rise above their circumstances, empower them with money-saving tips, and reimagine the good life as God designed it outside the myth of the American dream.

Precisely on point!

This book is really the nightingale's song sang to me in the night; a source of encouragement.
I hope to sing mine in the morning.
The author is a blessing to many people passing through hard times, financially and in other ways.
And the narrator is simply splendid

Misleading

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I would not have purchased and listened to this book had I known it was the author's version of religious ministery. It also has many advertisements for her blog and website which is how she got out of debt. Be prepared to hear a lot of recited scripture. I did listen to the end, however, do not have any new tools to tackle debt. My takeaway is, do not spend what you don't have and God will provide.

What three words best describe Michelle Lasley’s performance?

The reader was clear, but her emoting came across to me as one of pity.

Inspirational Story

I enjoyed listening to this book in my car. The narrator had an enjoyable voice and I loved the story. I can identify with several pieces of this story which is awesome. I am sure other women can too. Very inspirational and a great guide on how to live a frugal life.

Great book, very encouraging!

This is a great book! It has given me ideas to help stretch our family's budget and some much needed encouragement. I would definitely recommend it to anyone going through a financial crisis. Mrs. Odom pulls you into her story to give you hope in yours.

I enjoyed this faith based book.

Some of the information in this book I was already aware of, however, I liked hearing this story and feeling like I wasn't alone in my struggles. I also like how it's centered around Faith and gives you a new perspective on the situation.
