Rachel Cruze shines a spotlight on the most damaging money habit we have: comparing ourselves to others. Then she unpacks seven essential money habits for living the life we really want - a life in line with our values, where we can afford the things we want to buy without being buried under debt, stress, and worry. The Joneses are broke. Life looks good, but hidden beneath that glossy exterior are credit card bills, student loans, car payments, and an out-of-control mortgage. Their money situation is a mess, and they're trying to live a life they simply can't afford. So why exactly do we try so hard to keep up with the Joneses? Are we really living the lives we want, or are we chasing someone else's dream, just trying to keep up appearances on social media, at church, and in our community? Why are we letting other people set the pace for our own family's finances?
In Love Your Life, Not Theirs, Rachel shows you how to buy and do the things that are important to you - the right way. That starts by choosing to quit the comparisons, reframing the way you think about money, and developing new habits like avoiding debt, living on a plan, watching your spending, saving for the future, having healthy conversations about money, and giving. These habits work, and Rachel is living proof. Now, she wants to empower you to live the life you've always dreamed of without creating the debt, stress, and worry that are all too often part of the deal. Social media isn't real life, and trying to keep up with the Joneses will never get you anywhere. It's time to live - and love - your life, not theirs.

"Money management home run!"
I really like listening to Rachel's money advice and a perspective from someone my age. She is very in tune with the modern challenges we face as young adults and gives excellent comparisons and connects her life in her sophomore book. I highly recommend this to anyone on or looking for a financial road map.
"Love the book, great, easy and helpful!"
I love it! very easy to understand, straight to the point and great tools!
"The Spark I Needed to Renew of Debt Free Journey"
Rachel narrates this book so it adds that extra personal touch.
Being a newly Ramsey "follower" and also a spender I thought I couldn't learn anything new from this book because "I have already heard it all". I was pleased that most of the book was actually fresh information and give me that little kick i needed to get back on the debt free wagon and take control of my future.
While this book doesn't force you to save save save. It does make you reflect on your life and it give you the power to decide for yourself what you really want to get out of this book.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
"Husband and I read it together"
We loved reading your book Rachel! We could not agree more. We're going to make the changes and love our lives not everyone else's. What matters is our finances not the finances of others. Thank you for inspiring us to work harder and be better!

"Waste of money !"
What a disappointment! I was really looking forward to this book. She basically put Dave's "total money makeover" into her own words and passed it off as something she wrote. What a waste of money!
"Total Money Makeover - Refresh"
I love Dave Ramsey and his principles, but this book is the same thing just in short version read by his daughter. Still a good listen, just not. Sure if it was fully worth my credit!
I love all of the books written by Rachel and Dave! I wish this book would have been around when I was in college as there are some very valuable tips for young adults to learn!
"great book to get on track to becoming debt free"
A few years ago my husband and I went through FPU, this is a great followup and reminder that staying on track will lead us to a life of biblical financial freedom.
"Good advice for healthy money habits."
Rachel Cruze covers a modern way of pursuing the financial life you want. Good read from a new author.
"My new bff!"
I loved it. Rachel is fantastic and down to earth. I wish she would be my new bff. this was just what I needed to get fired back up about my money!
