My Boy Dave

Shaina is taking a study at the church called Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. She is taking the class and then I listen to the audio lessons during my travels.

This is good stuff. We are 4 or 5 weeks into the 13 week course, but it has been an empowering class. For the first time, I feel like we have our head above water and better control of our finances.

FPU is a solid way to enable people to get out from under the cloud of debt, control spending, and be able to better give towards kingdom impact.

In a time when the economic outlook is bleak and the main role model we have (namely our government) is the worst role model to have in terms of spending, this is a great way to think in alternative ways.

So if money always seems tight or non-existent, or if debt is piling up on credit cards, then ask yourself if a class like this might be a liberating experience. Part of the upfront catch is that you have to pay $100 to join the class which creates a stronger sense of buy in.

We didn't take the class, but read his book--we use his financial model. It works well if you stick to it.
