A healthy relationship with money consists of contentment and generosity, Thrivent Financial president and chief executive officer Brad Hewitt told the Woodbury Area Prayer Breakfast.

Hundreds attended the annual event, held Tuesday at the Prom Center in Oakdale, to hear Hewitt speak and pray for public safety, government, military, international community, businesses, parachurch organizations, churches, education, youth and families.

"Contentment and generosity are about as natural to me as jumping in front of a train," Hewitt admitted. "God doesn't need to be generous—he already owns everything. God needs us to be generous, to change us. Generosity changes your heart." He went on to encourage attendees to have a plan for their money—to work on their hearts and their minds.
