    A Former Monk’s Financial Guide to Becoming a Little Bit Wealthy---and Why That’s Okay

    From Monk to Money Manager is an entertaining and self-deprecating journey through Lynam's relationship with the almighty dollar-his childhood in a wealthy family, the long-haired hippie days running away from materialism, time in the Marine Corps looking for selfless service, and his twenty years in the monastery under a vow of poverty that led to his current profession as a financial advisor. In this unique look at wealth from a spiritual perspective, Lynam shares his belief that God doesn't expect us to live in poverty. The truth is, we need to be a little bit wealthy-fiscally wise and financially strong so we can help others and make the world a better place. When money becomes a part of our spiritual practice, used in love and service, it brings us closer to God.  His insights include how to build a compassionate relationship to our finances; some of the good, bad, and ugly truths about money; and the ten foundational rules for finding financial health.
