Help for your finances...
Perseverance is key in personal finances, but sometimes it’s hard to do, when you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. A few people sent me these emails about how the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Class has helped them. The next Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University classes begin Tuesday, February 4th. See page 9 for details and how to register!
- The Financial Peace University gave me the confidence that I could be strong in my financial planning. Before the class I had only about $500 in my savings account. Now I have $3,000. I have paid off several bills and I am having success in getting the others paid off. I have started a savings account for my new grand daughter which I am excited about. Also, I have become more involved with non- profit organizations. I can help out on a volunteer basis and a little financially as well. The non-profit donations are not large, but I feel like it is a start. I have also been able to increase my contributions to the Vineyard -which I am most excited about. God has rewarded me tenfold for my financial focus. -M.K.
- My greatest success after applying the principles of Dave Ramsey was that I was able to pay for graduate school without any school loans. I switched my spending habits to cash only and all of a sudden I had excess cash available each month. I used this extra money to pay for my tuition. I couldn’t have done this without Dave Ramsey’s help. -L.B.
- Just want to thank you again for offering this course. It’s so important!! After taking the session last summer and meeting with you, we were motivated to pay off old student loans that had been lurking around forever, and are currently debt-free (except for our mortgage), and have about $13,000 (above our 6-month emergency fund) in the bank so far, being saved toward a 20% down payment on a future home, or whatever the Lord leads us to! Best of all, we are more at peace about any lay-off or job change concerns that might pop up. So thankful for this ministry!!! -M.L
- I think I went through the class about two or three years ago. At that time I had debt hanging over my head. It wasn't as much as it had been when I was in my deepest debt but it was enough to make me not ever want to be in debt again. While in the class I paid off my remaining debt and continue to be debt free. I incurred my debt in my 20s. I was always living paycheck to paycheck and at times would need to borrow money from family to make my mortgage payment. Today I am living debt free and I pay for EVERYTHING in cash. My car was already paid off. I have been saving the money that I would have been paying for my car in a separate account so when I need a new car I can pay cash. Being debt free is the best feeling ever! - T.S.
