About the Book
Using biblical principles, but not relying on miracles or “name-it-and-claim-it” theology, Dan provides easy-to-follow, practical steps that can be used by anyone to escape financial bondage. Finally, he encourages readers to use their financial freedom to help others and advance God’s kingdom, and to use their newfound fiscal wisdom to store up wealth. Without shaming those who struggle financially, 5 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom is the perfect combination of spiritual wisdom and practical advice for those who desperately need it.
Five Simple Steps to Financial Freedom is the first book I’ve read by Dan Willis. As someone who helps facilitate a budgeting basics class for my own church and being in the middle of my own debt reduction journey, I was excited to read this book by Mr. Willis to see if I might gain some tips or tricks to help the class.
This book is written in a clear, simple to understand manner. I felt like Mr. Willis was speaking directly to me in this book and I appreciated it. It’s always interesting when reading a financial health book because in my experience the authors tend to scold their readers.
Mr. Willis avoids doing that, and he is insistent on promoting the idea that debt is bad for us because it can separate us from God. One of my favorite lines in the book is the following:
“God wants you to be free, but we’re not really convicted about being in debt. Do you realize that being in debt is a spiritual condition, not a financial condition? It is a sign that greed has set in.”
I had never considered that debt could be a sign that we’ve succumbed to the sin of greed and that it is inhibiting our spiritual growth. Debt is just a fact of life for most of us and we are aware that we will never really be free of it. It makes sense though. If we are in debt, especially if we are struggling, we are not going to give as much as we should of either our blessings and talents.
While this book is easy to read and will help those who have never read a financial health book before, the steps themselves are rudimentary and nothing I haven’t read in other financial books. The steps aren’t that detailed, but I think it would make a good book for beginners.
I give Five Steps to Financial Freedom 4/5 stars and can recommend it to those who have never considered what being debt-free can do for your spiritual and financial health. If you are looking for less generalized steps, this book is not for you.

This book review that you wrote really helped me get an idea about it. I was thinking whether I should buy it or not, however, after reading your review, I am sure that I need to go and check it out. There are lots of people out here who needs to read this. This book can really help most people with their problems. Again, this is not a novel, it is a book that is all about how we manage our lives.

In 2002 there were a total of eight debt relief programs in business. Today, there are at least 2,000 due to the recession. The U.S. government has implemented laws in recent past to protect the consumer from the rise of numerous debt relief scams, but consumers should never get complacent - do your homework when selecting a debt relief company.
Have not worked in 16 months due to bad knees and the Pandemic. Had a simple heart Ablation procedure last October and the doctor burned a hole in my heart. Died for about 15 minutes..took three doctors to bring me back to life...was in ICU for four days..9 more in a private room. Am unable to return to work until January. Our Governor in Texas is ending unemployment benefits this month. $2,028 to support my family will disappear. I had over $775,000 stolen from me from the Ray estate in Arkansas after my parents both died. Would appreciate your book. Have no money to send to you now. My seed was adopting a two week old abandoned drug infant who had less than two months to live!!! She just finished 7th grade honors classes!! God literally gave her a new heart and brain!!!
