Another Dave Fan ... and More Money Wisdom

It's no secret - the RAsburry household has thoroughly enjoyed being completely debt-free for the past 8-9 months (that is, out of debt, no credit card payments, owe no one any money, not making credit card companies rich and making the family poor - How sweet it is!). And it's no secret - I highly recommend the get out of debt plan taught by Dave Ramsey and his "Financial Peace University." What a blessing these have been!

It looks like someone else has been rather taken by Dave and his approach to managing money and having financial peace. Check out "MoneyPlanSOS," both a website for services and a blog.

Perhaps you'll really appreciate this financial coach's wisdom on things we say that keep us broke.

Or perhaps you need to learn how to teach your children some "four-letter words" that can actually help them.

I happen to like this guy's little pearl of wisdom on still tithing while getting out of debt.

But I especially like the notion of eschewing the labels of lower, middle, and upper classes - along with the constrictions and/or expectations that normally go with such nebulous labeling. From now on, no matter how much money I have or don't have, I'll proudly throw my lot in with "The Other Class."

"Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce" (Prov. 3:9)

"One pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth." (Prov. 13:7)

Mary and I have been blessed in the same way. It truly is the ONLY way to survive the coming earthquake (Larry Burkett). Much joy in serving our risen Savior!

Mr. Ashburry,

Thank you so much for all the great words and links to my website and blogposts. If you are ever in need of a speaker for a financial class one day then please let me know. I would love to meet you and members of your congregation!
