Meet your guide, John Putnam

Hi, I’m John, founder of Smarter Stewardship. Whether you have a lot or a little, how you approach your money affects your relationship with God, your spouse, and the good works God has entrusted you to do on this earth. The resources, courses, and podcasts I’ve created will help you to make lasting change and live with more faithfulness, joy, and peace in all areas of your life.

You need more than a budget or a list of rules about money. You need a proven framework and resources to get to the underlying beliefs and habits that sabotage your ability to be faithful stewards of all God has entrusted to you.
