Financial Peace University: Week 1

Dave and I had our first FPU class Sunday morning at Grace. I have to admit that I was nervous about the whole experience, mainly because I have a low tolerance for cheese. I was worried the video teaching would be cheesy and overly "motivational" (if you know what I mean). Dave Ramsey is a really great speaker. He's genuine, and it shows. I was pleasantly surprised.

Beyond that, I can see that this is a masterful program. Everything is broken down to a basic level, but it's applicable no matter where you are in your financial journey.

For the first time in a couple of years, I have some hope in the area of finances. Even though we're far away from where we want to be, the end is in sight. It's not as bad as I make it out to be, and we're going to be fine...excellent, actually. My main prayer at this time is that we'd both just jump in 100% and try it together.

This week we're:

On Saturday, ask me if we did it.
