Share Save Spend seminar slated March 2 in Nisswa

Nathan Dungan, founder and president of Share Save Spend, will host a seminar from 2:30-4 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at Lutheran Church of the Cross in Nisswa.

Families and children are welcome and encouraged to attend.

A free-will offering will be take to offset expenses.

There will also be a forum from 9:30-10:30 a.m. that day in the church’s Chapel Hall, geared toward adults, especially those of retirement age.

For more than 20 years, Dungan has been an industry thought-leader on helping individuals and families align their values with their money decisions.

He speaks and consults with families and organizations on the topic of money and the effects of our consumer culture on money habits.

Dungan is also the author of three books and numerous resources, including “Money Sanity Solutions: Linking Money + Meaning,” “Prodigal Sons and Material Girls: How Not to Be Your Child’s ATM” and a textbook for high school students — “Personal Finance: A Lifetime Responsibility.”

A new study, using Dungan’s tools, showed that teaching youth about money can decrease their materialism and increase their self-esteem. The study, published in the journal Motivation and Emotion, is the first experimental evidence to demonstrate that decreasing focus on materialistic goals can cause long-lasting improvements in the well-being of youth.
