Yes, you CAN be debt-free! Take control of your money in just NINE weeks! We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan and starts this week at Linwood! It teaches God’s ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! FPU classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks. The cost is $100/family—which covers material. Childcare provided, if needed. Registration can be done via Linwood’s website – www.linwoodsda.org. Any questions, call 509-768-2593.
Success Story from DaveRamsey.com
9 weeks ago I had no job, no savings, and no idea how we were going to pay our monthly bills. God’s perfect timing allowed my wife and I to begin Financial Peace University. During the first week, I landed a job at a local factory. Dave inspired us to have a yard sale, sell old textbooks on Amazon, get rid of our cable bill, and I started getting amateur haircuts from my brother, which actually looks pretty good. Honest! When we started seeing progress, things started breaking. We called in a plumber, an air conditioning tech, and a washing machine repair man. Every week we kept learning together and applying Dave’s applications to our lives. We just completed FPU last night and I am proud to say that we were able to sock away our emergency fund, $1000. We also began our debt snowball and nearly paid $2000 off!!! I never thought we had enough money that we could tithe with until I realized that the tithe comes off the top, not from the bottom. We made tithing a priority for the first time in our lives. We still have a journey ahead of us, but I feel like a burden has been lifted and I can see my wife and I debt free someday. I love reading Dave’s encouraging words on Facebook and I will continue to utilize the FPU tools online. The greatest challenge came on week 6 when we found out that my wife and I are expecting our first baby. A new budget will be in the works soon and I feel I have all the tools for success. Thanks!!
