Employing qualitative interviews with a diverse national sample of 184 religious families (N = 445 individuals), we present an in‐depth look at how participants (a) view and frame their faith‐based financial giving, (b) how they contribute to and receive from their faith communities, and (c) how the blending of faith and finances influences their marital and parental relationships.
