Thank you Dave Ramsey!

You Dave, are next on my list to thank following Christopher Columbus! Now, you didn't accidently discover America BUT you have helped America to receive financial peace!!!! Now I can't yet say that I'm one of those said Americans but I'm at least headed in the right direction!
A group from our church has just finished FPU (Financial Peace University) and I believe we have learned a lot of concepts that will help us achieve financial freedom! I have found though that gaining the knowledge was EASY! It's applying this knowledge to our lifestyle that has been tough! This goes along with my weight issues. I know how to lose the weight it's just having the discipline to do it!

I also want to thank you Dave for the friendships that I have gained from this group! It is so nice to be able to fellowship with Christian friends and encourage one another throughout this class. Our lives can be so busy that sometimes we don't take the time to get to know our fellow churchgoers and this gave us the oppurtunity to learn, laugh, and laugh some more. Our last session was especially moving...spiritually yes, but also in a biological manner. Ahem. My bladder. One of our friends made some lovely coconut cookies to which became one of our biggest laughs of the night. I won't go into any details because even though I didn't mean what I said in how it sounded, it probably won't sound any better repeated here.

12 pack of Coke $3

Financial Peace University Kit $91

Brooke saying the most inappropriate thing without meaning to....priceless.

Did I just use a credit card slogan in my thank you note to Dave Ramsey? HA!

A special thanks also to Dwayne and Holly C. for putting their time and effort to instruct this class. Thank you also to our church for supporting us in this, I really believe this class has and will continue to impact those of us who took part in it!

Hey Brooke,
I love Dave Ramsey too ! We can all learn from him. I am teaching Financial Peace Jr. to a group of kids at our homeschool co-op.
Also wanted to let you know that I tagged you for a meme. Go to my blog to get the details.

Girl, you better watch it posting about Dave Ramsey and giving a cc slogan at the same time. He must have people scouring the web for posts about him. Seriously! One time I posted with his name in it and some freaky D. R. groupie (who had never commented on my blog B4) left a comment about my post....within seconds of my publishing it! Weird, huh?! Thank goodness it was a positive comment!
