Did you catch my big announcement on Tuesday? If not here is the run down. The Hubby and I have decided to take up the challenge to change our finances. We are working our way through Dave Ramsey Sermon series Life Money Legacy.
Each Friday I will be blogging about our journey!
Right away The Hubby related to Dave Ramsey. He started off telling a story about when he was 12 he had a lawn mowing business. Well The Hubby had one himself!
Two things that stopped both The Hubby & I in our tracks was: 1) Dave Ramsey hit rock bottom and 2) that the bible has financial principles.
In some ways The Hubby and I always thought we where the only ones going through our issues. I mean everyone looks like they have it together right?
Until this sermon the only verse I could recall about finances is the one about tithing. It never crossed our minds to ask God for direction through the bible.
During the sermon Dave Ramsey touched on 5 key things to implement in your life to help your finances.
5 Things To Implement:
1) Budget: write down on paper, on purpose before the month starts.
2) Get out of debt and stay out of debt. Proverbs 22:7
3) Relationships: dysfunction in the family loses you money
4) Save & Invest Money
On Tuesday I challenged my readers to make a financial binder. (Did anyone make one? Please leave a comment to let me know.) Yes, I made mine and made a budget. We also made some challenges for ourselves.
Gulp, that’s a lot of things… The Hubby and I have a lot of things to over come but I am sure it will be worth it. Come back next week to see what we have learned 🙂
