Journey to Financial Freedom

Justin and I have been really trying to get out of debt. We are a part of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. Justin actually leads the course on Sunday nights at Crestview. We’ve had a really good turn out and much or our small group is from outside of Crestview. We have completed Baby Step #1 and are working towards Baby Step #2 which is paying off all debt except the house. Dave Ramsey always says “beans and rice, rice and beans” and boy is that true. We’ve been eating a ton of sandwiches, rice, ramen, noodles or all sorts (and just recently have been adding veggies to make it a little better for us). It’s hard but we have been able to pay off all of our credit cards (and cancel them). Now we are moving on to the cars which, hopefully will be paid off rather quickly (about a year early). Then those dreaded school loans! But…it will all be worth it in the end. We are “living like no one else so that later we can live (and give) like no one else.” We are excited and really seeing results. I want to strongly recommend this program and hope you will all try to make your futures a little brighter in the end. Nothing is impossible with God! God doesn’t like debt either. Justin’s favorite verse says it all… Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
