Today we went to “the other” church I had mentioned in my last post. I had known for awhile that they were about to start a financial peace program but hadn’t put too much thought into it. Apparently the program starts tonight though so that is what the sermon was about. They really want everyone in their church to have financial freedom so they would like everyone to join.
Although we have not completely decided to attend this church or not, we would so love to have financial freedom. I mean really, is there anything that feels so binding as money being “tight”. The pastor said that on average for every dollar the average American makes, they spend $1.22. That is crazy! Debt is such bondage, and it is horrible to have any kind of bondage really.
So, we decided to drop what we are doing for the next 13 weeks and give this program, Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, a real go. Now there is no way we could pay off said bills in 13 weeks, but it sure would be nice to start working towards that so we can have that all important peace!
Here’s to a fresh start!
