For Young Adults

In a rapidly changing world, one of the hardest parts of life is making sound Godly financial choices.  Even making ends meet can be an enormous struggle and may seem like a losing battle, making the idea of any real progress seem unreachable.  Let The Idlewild Foundation help you.  Here are a few resources filled with practical day-to-day ideas, with more to come monthly.  And consider taking a Financial Peace University course at Idlewild Baptist Church. Call The Idlewild Foundation at (813) 264-8713 for more information.

For Parents

Parenting is one of the greatest challenges God has given us.  We live in a world where selfishness and self-centered thinking is not just promoted, it is worshiped.  Teaching Christian generosity in this environment is especially tough, but it is not impossible.  Here we offer a few practical ideas to help parents grow in God's grace as they work with God to grow their children into young adults.

For Seniors

Growing more mature means facing new challenges. At a time when we used to think we would have life down pat, it seems that life is patting (or beating) us down. But here are a few financial and practical steps for finishing strong and in step with the Lord.

Giving Help

The Idlewild Foundation exists to encourage individuals and families to make a greater impact for the Kingdom with their charitable giving, to learn to give in a tax-wise manner, and to help them balance their living with giving to God. Learn more about this life-changing topic, Christian stewardship, with the resources we have here.

Legal Documents

You can't get away from the impact the law has on our finances, giving and actually on every aspect of our lives.  Here we have some resources to help you begin to gain a Biblical and secure perspective on life and to help you make decisions that will shape your future - and even your eternity.  But know that the law is constantly changing and is very complex, so individual legal help from an expert is absolutely necessary.  Do not try to do it yourself!  Call The Idlewild Foundation at (813) 264-8713 and we can guide you to affordable Christian help.

For Wise Stewardship

Christian stewardship is far more than just Biblical money management.  Real stewardship involves your treasure, your time and your talents - all gifts from God and all to be used to serve God.  Real stewardship is a Spirit-led growth process, not something that just naturally happens.  Let us help you grow with the resources we have here for you.
