From Little to Much - The Key to Improving Your Finances

Jim and Susi Collins love giving back. Susi grew up with very little, but now is seeing ongoing financial blessing in her life. What's the key to this turn-around and can it work for you? Read Transcript


Reporter: JIM AND SUSIE

COLLINS LIVE IN EXCELSIOR,

MINNESOTA IN THE LAND OF

10,000 LAKES.

THEY'RE CBN PARTNERS.

IT WAS A STORY ABOUT A CBN

WATER PROJECT THAT CONVINCED

SUSIE TO CALL AND MAKE A

PLEDGE.

WHEN YOU SEE AN ENTIRE

COMMUNITY IS CHANGED BECAUSE

THEY'RE ABLE TO IRRIGATE

THEIR CROPS AND FEED THEIR

CHILDREN -- WHEN I THINK I

CAN GIVE $20 A MONTH AND YOU

CAN CHANGE COMMUNITIES AND

YOU CAN CHANGE GENERATIONS.

Reporter: BUT SUSIE

SAYS SHE ALSO GIVES FOR MORE

PERSONAL REASONS.

SHE WAS RAISED BY A SINGLE

MOM, AND THINGS WERE VERY

TIGHT FOR THE FAMILY.

I HAVE BEEN ON THE

RECEIVING END, AND I KNOW

WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE IN

NEED.

I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO

BE HUNGRY.

I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO

WORRY ABOUT WHETHER YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE A ROOF OVER

YOUR HEAD.

Reporter: AND OVER THE

YEARS, SUSIE HAS NOTICED

SOMETHING ELSE: AS THEY

BECAME FAITHFUL IN THEIR

GIVING, GOD PROVIDED FOR

THEM.

JIM WORKS AS A REP FOR A

LARGE COMPANY THAT MAKES

BELTS.

WE SAW AN INCREASE IN HIS

COMMISSIONS.

HERE IT IS, THE ECONOMY IS

NOT DOING AS WELL, AND GOD

PROVIDES.

ALL OF A SUDDEN AN ACCOUNT

COMES THROUGH THAT HE DIDN'T

KNOW ABOUT.

A SALES COMES THROUGH.

A BONUS PROGRAM GETS CHANGED

THAT BENEFITS US.

Reporter: AND SUSIE WAS

EXCITED TO TELL US BECAUSE

OF THAT, THEY WERE ABLE TO

PAY FOR THEIR DAUGHTER'S

TUITION.

FOUR YEARS OF COLLEGE

COMPLETELY PAID FOR WHEN WE

DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WERE

GOING TO DO THAT.

IT'S THRILLING.

Reporter: AND JUST LAST

MONTH, SUSIE WAS OFFERED A

JOB AT AN INSURANCE AGENCY,

WHICH WILL PROVIDE MORE

OPPORTUNITIES FOR THEM TO

GIVE.

I WOULD DEFINITELY

ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO PICK UP

THE PHONE AND BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

YOU WILL FEEL SO GOOD FOR

HELPING OTHERS, AND GOD WILL

DEFINITELY BLESS YOU.
