Use your time, money and faith in God to “live life to the fullest.” That’s what the upcoming “Time, Money and God” Convocation hopes to inspire students to do, according to junior Tyler Beutel, the founder and president of Pepperdine’s Personal Finance Club.
The Personal Finance Club and the Office of Financial Literacy have come together to bring Matt Munson, assistant professor of Accounting at Chapman University and author of “Timeology,” here to speak to students about his book.
The event is set for Nov. 23 at 6 p.m. Munson will speak to students about the importance of using time, money and God as a motivator in their own life decisions.
“One of the most important decisions we make in life is how we trade our time. It determines everything: how we experience life, what we achieve and what difference we make,” Munson wrote in an email. “This event is designed to help us gain the perspective necessary to trade our time for living our individual lives to the fullest we possibly can.”
Speaking about Munson’s book, Beutel said, “’Timeology’ is the framework by which we can link how we trade our time with living our life to the fullest.”
Munson has been a family friend of Buetel’s since Munson’s wife taught him in the sixth grade, Buetel said. He added that he and Derek Stoutland, the director for the Office of Financial Literacy, have been working on organizing this event for months.
Beutel said that his hope for this Convocation is that it will challenge the Pepperdine community to rethink and re-motivate their college lives and also allow them make to a faith-based, timely and financially wise decisions.
