Once Our Lives is the true story of four generations of Chinese women and how their lives were threatened by powerful and cruel ancient traditions, historic upheavals, and a man whose fate - cursed by an ancient superstition - dramatically altered their destinies. The book takes the reader on an exotic journey filled with luxurious banquets, lost jewels, babies sold in opium dens, kidnappings by pirates, and a desperate flight from death in the desert - seen through the eyes of a man for whom the truth would spell disaster and a lonely, beautiful girl with three identities.

The decade that spans ages 20 to 30 sees adults evolve from complete financial dependence to, humanly speaking, complete financial independence. During their twenties, most people adopt formative financial perspectives and habits in their stewardship journey. Resolve brings focus and clarity to the five foundational stewardship principles that readers (of any age) should understand and apply to build a solid financial framework. Agreeing with the principles is easy. Developing the resolve and conviction to implement them is much harder. Will Ertel draws from his 25-year plus personal financial planning experience and his experiences with his three twentysomething children to exhort the reader to both understand and apply these principles.
