Ep 47: How to change your finances to become a SAHM with Stephanie Sims
Play • 31 min

So many families think they’re living the American Dream, until they want or need to make a change but can’t due to their finances. In the case of Stephanie Sims and her husband, they were living a great life and doing all the things they thought they should – like using their income to buy a bigger family home and new cars – until Stephanie wanted to stay home with her baby but couldn’t because of the family’s debt. About three years later and with two more babies, Stephanie and her husband had enough and decided to make drastic changes to the way they lived and used their money. Stephanie and I discuss how a budget and living below your means gives you the options you may want or need to raise your family on your terms.


About the Guest:

Stephanie Sims is a boy mama x 4, foster parent, and a wife of 10+ years. She’s a Special Education teacher by trade but has left the classroom to raise her children and spread her message of hope and generational change to other mamas.

In her work, Stephanie leans into 5 main topics: Faith, Finances, Health, Marriage & Mindset and believes in changing the seemingly insignificant choices we make each day to compound over time and break chains, tear down strongholds, and ultimately drive generational change.
