Dave Ramsey and Financial Peace University have blessed our lives in countless ways. When my wife and I began the course we were in the process of paying off what seemed to be an insurmountable amount of car and student loan debt ($52,215 in 26 months). After each class, we came away encouraged, motivated, and inspired to make the necessary sacrifices. This class opened the communication in our relationship, and because of this class our marriage is stronger today. God has blessed us tremendously through Dave Ramsey and this powerful class. Because we have recently become debt free, we now have incredible opportunities to give, save, and encourage others as they work towards Financial Peace.

Looking back, I guess it was God’s will that finances would define our marriage. When we came back from the honeymoon, I had an overdraft letter from the bank waiting for me. I foolishly attempted to hide this information from Megan and pretend that everything was fine, but the letters kept coming. Finances could have destroyed us. Then we read a book called The Total Money Makeover (think of it as the cliffs notes of FPU), and we realized that we needed a plan for our money and our future. We learned that God actually has a lot to say about money and what we should do with it. Following this plan has redefined our marriage. It is now the finances that continues to unite us. Our monthly financial planning is constant reminder that we’re working together for a greater purpose.

God has blessed our family in too many ways to count through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace program. With no debt payments, our family has experienced a freedom of choice, a joy of giving and a peace in our home without money stress that is too awesome for us to fully express. We are so thankful to God for changing our lives forever through this program that is rooted in His principles.
