Money Legacies

Donald V. Romanik

Feb/2022, 96 Pages, PAPERBACK, 5 x 7

ISBN-13: 9781640654570



Each of us has a personal money story developed early in life and stemming from the ways in which our family of origin viewed money. 

This legacy shapes our attitudes about money even as we mature, including how we spend it, save it, and give it away. Consequently, our childhood often determines our approach to money during our entire lives. Donald Romanik helps readers discover the consequences of that money legacy, for individuals and for the churches and other organizations to which they belong.

Read an excerpt.

DONALD V. ROMANIK has been President of the Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) since 2005. Formerly, he has served as an attorney in both government and private practice and has been active in civic, charitable, and religious organizations.
A strong advocate of the ministry of all the baptized, Donald frequently writes and speaks on topics relating to leadership and resource development for Episcopal organizations, working to develop new models of lay+clergy partnerships and effective leadership teams to empower future leaders for a changing church. He lives in New York.

“Far too often, we Christians don’t think about how we spend our money any differently than any other person on our street, with earning and spending being much like sleeping and waking—something we just do. Donald Romanik calls us to the very important task of understanding that, as Christians, our use of money rightly should come out of our ‘why.’ Most importantly, he suggests some practical and nonthreatening exercises to help us start digging into that ‘why’ to help us get our finances aligned with what we feel God calling us to do as individuals and as congregations.”
—The Rev. Canon Rosa Lee Harden, Executive Producer, Faith+Finance
