"Our advisor, Colby Gilmore, has guided us in our journey by helping us look at money from a biblical worldview. He has helped us make smart decisions regarding our finances and has coached us through how to protect our assets, advised us in future investments, helped us achieve our personal goals, and magnified the gifts God has entrusted us to give freely and joyfully."

"We first called Ronald Blue Trust to determine how soon I could retire. Colby Gilmore, as our planner, and the Ronald Blue Trust organization guided us on a spiritual path at exactly the right time to focus us on God’s will at this stage of our lives and we will be forever thankful."

"Colby is a fantastic financial planner who has helped me significantly improve my financial planning. He listens, looks to understand long-term goals, provides creative solutions, and serves his clients’ needs well. I strongly recommend working with Colby if you are looking for someone to provide you great advice with a genuine, caring approach."

My wife and I have many strengths in our relationship. Financial literacy is not one of them. Working with two non-salaried streams of income - a realtor and actress combo - we needed guidance on how best to plan for our future. We've learned that financial health can greatly impact marital health and agreed that financial transparency is a core value for our family. We began seeking referrals for a certified financial planner, and thank God we were led to Colby! Not long into our first consultation, we knew we were in good hands. Despite having zero basic knowledge of financial management, he made all terms and processes simple and easy to understand. Colby helped us set up life insurance policies, SEP IRA accounts, and perhaps most importantly, taught us how to create a charitable donation fund so that we can give cheerfully and with freedom. Not only that, Colby's approachable and relaxed energy puts us at ease on every call. We always know what to do next, what to anticipate, and genuinely look forward to our meetings.

When considering receiving counsel in our lives, whether relationally or financially, we believe it's important that we share core values. No value is more foundational to us than our faith as Christians. Ronald Blue Trust combines practical experience with biblical wisdom. We feel that Ronald Blue Trust not only prepares our family to steward our finances well - it does so in a way that prepares us to give generously both in the present and future.
