Financial Peace University

I meant to write a post on this earlier in the week, and am just now getting around to it. James and I are taking this course at our church. It is going to be an AWESOME class, I can tell already. . .It is a christian based course on managing your finances, saving money and becoming debt free. Here is how it is described on Dave Ramsey's web site...(
"Financial Peace University is a 13-week program that encourages positive behavior with accountability and support. Personal finance is 80% behavior and only 20% head knowledge.
-Teaches financial responsibility with easy Baby Steps
-Helps eliminate debt using the Debt Snowball
-Offers accountability and continued support with lifetime membership
-Trains participants to spend every dollar on paper with the zero-based budget planner
-Empowers people struggling with financial hardships by establishing a plan to take control of their finances"

So, needless to say, James and I are both looking forward to all we are going to learn and accomplish by taking this class. . .Our first homework assignment is to create a budget...Together... This should be fun =)
