The Day before We Became Rich, by Debbi Dougherty, is the author's account of her financial journey from lack to abundance. The purpose of the book is to encourage readers to build their faith in God despite their difficult financial conditions. In this narrative, Debbi tells how God has been so good and faithful to her. With intriguing and inspiring personal stories, she narrates how she and Kevin, her husband, rose from difficult circumstances.

Written in a journal format, this spiritual guide contains the monetary struggles and breakthroughs Debbi and Kevin have experienced. It consists of some valuable lessons that they have learned along the way. In addition, Debbi relates how she applied the wisdom of God to her problems and obtained positive results. She admonishes Christians to praise God in every circumstance, be patient, help other people, and be grateful to God at all times. Furthermore, she explains the principle of generosity and then highlights the benefits of being a generous giver.

Comprising 123 pages, the narrative is a quick read. It's enlightening and uplifting. It's captivating and easy to understand. The author presented her facts in a simple and clear way. The only flaw I saw in the book is lack of enough details. The author should have elaborated some of her points. A few sections have shallow description, as if she skipped some vital details. Nevertheless, the author succeeded in getting her message across. I enjoyed reading the narrative, and it has encouraged me to keep on helping others. I concurred with Debbi that the more you give, the more you receive, and irrespective of the challenge you face, if you lean on God, you'll overcome.

Intended for Christians, the narrative is mainly about looking to God for guidance and provisions. In an interesting manner, it unveils the importance of tithing and advises readers to hold onto their faith. It shows that God allows his children to go through hard times for a good purpose. Included in the text are a lot of extracts from the Bible. Hence, if you don't like books containing Scriptures, I guess you should skip this one.

Lastly, the book is engaging. It'll be very useful to readers experiencing financial problems. It was well edited since I noticed only a couple of grammatical errors. Therefore, I rate it 3 out of 4 stars. I couldn't rate it higher because, for me, it feels a bit rushed.

I love books that put God ahead of everything. Debbie and her husband did this and excelled according to your review. Tithing and generosity are foremost. The fact that all the situations we pass through are meant for our good is a great tip. We should accept all situations.

I like the concept of this as a good reminder that our money is a blessing from God. I think we can forget who the source is when we are striving for our finances to get in order. This one sounds intriguing! Too bad that it didn’t feel like a good pace and was rushed. It still interests me though. Thanks for this review.

Thanks for the honest review. I am wondering if the author gave any mention to negative experiences that could contradict this message. Sometimes we don't always see the way leading to good things, rather to trial and testing. Thoughts?

Having gone through the reviews, I am a victim of this. I have now learned to be patient and trusting that God has his way of pedagogy to man. I am giving the author Debbi and Kevin a big thanks. I rate 3 out of 4 star.

I feel like books like these state that God is only faithful if he blesses you with wealth. I don't like that type of message. So I'm going to pass on this one. Thanks for the information.

This sounds like an uplifting book. The topic of money and God is always a tricky one, so it is unfortunate that the author rushed the book. I don't think this is the book for me right now though. Thank you for the awesome review. :)

Hi Kandscreeley, nice to read your comment on my review again. Hope you're fine. The book doesn't state that God is only faithful if he blesses you with wealth. It shows that God is always there for His children, even during bad times, but He surely makes a way out. 😊 👌

I'm with Kandscreely on this. Thanks for the review, but I'm going to pass.
