Is Money a Big Deal to God?

 

“We are a class of imperfect Christians on a journey to engage with our finances in a more perfect way.  Led by the wit and wisdom of Dave Ramsey, we laugh, share, and communicate…and enjoy treats that our leader Bev Boyer so graciously provides each week (even when the roads are covered with snow and ice).  In short, the focus of the class (PEACE) represents our journey:  People Engaging And Combating the #1 Energy drainer: their finances. We are reminded by our tutor, Dave Ramsey, that ‘the Bible talks about money more often than it talks about love and grace.  Think our attitude about money might be a big deal to God?’  If you answered yes to that question, then you understand why we are participating in this course.  The class has met for only a few session so far, but we look forward to sharing our comments and reaction as we progress through the course.” – Dee Swanson.  Click here for more information on Financial Peace University.

“All four of us teachers (me, Joanne Griggs, Tim Miller, and Cameron Miller) have really enjoyed working with the classes.  After our first class was completed (a few years ago), we all looked at each other and said ‘Let’s do this again next year!’  And with each subsequent class, we have seen people come to the first class ‘with fear and trembling’ – sometimes because their own situation was really scary, and sometimes because they were afraid to try to budget.  Dave’s videos soon had us all laughing, both at him, and at all of us humans and our foibles – but he also teaches sound financial principles, and gives you the enthusiasm to begin to do the hard work that is required to re-think your financial life.  As the weeks progressed, we found our class members beginning to relax, and to take control.  By the last class, everyone had a good sense of where they wanted to go, and how to go about getting there.  Financial Peace University is empowering, and it’s a pleasure to be able to provide it for our members and guests.  I can confidently predict that we will offer it again next January(2019)!” – Bev Boyer
