About this item

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 readers 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.

Vulnerability at it's best. This book is a must have for your fall reading list. The bird's eye view that you get of Erin and her family leading up to financial freedom is so raw and true. This is not a self-help book, this book is a real life example of the struggles of everyday life, but also the ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Trapped in a vicious cycle of paying off and accumulating more debt, I picked up Erin's book and found the one thing that I'd not given myself: Grace. Through Erin's part-memoir and part how-to writing, I learned that my focus needs to be on recognizing God's provision in my life, accepting that I c...see moreof the reviewer's review

Stories help us understand. They help us learn and grow. Finding out someone’s stories can teach us to live with more grace, hope, empathy, love…I think Erin Odom’s More Than Just Making It is one of those stories where we will have to “listen” to open our eyes and hearts to where someone has been, ...see moreof the reviewer's review
