Money can be a hot issue topic in a marriage. Getting a hold on finances and organizing your budget is probably the best thing you could do in terms of spring cleaning. Most of us have had to tighten our belts but have you really focused on where you are spending money and how??
Enter Dave Ramsey! To me he is a rockstar helping millions of families realize what it means to be DEBT FREE. I recently got to go and tour his offices and see him in person, it was a thrill to see fun artwork of cut up credit cards and to see (or hear) the joy as folks screamed “We’re debt free!” on his show.
He really does know about handling money and does so through a Christian perspective. He is a radio show host and also has books, CDs, DVDs and more that all are meant to help you learn how to honor God with how you use your finances.
Just think… if you took all the money you save from grocery and drugstore deals and used/saved it wisely we could all be screaming on his show in no time!!
Some of Dave Ramsey’s best tools are:
Kids Monster Pack
The Kid’s Monster Pack includes all of the tools you need to teach your kids to learn to manage money well. The set includes Financial Peace Jr., all 6 of Dave’s illustrated kids’ books, plus the new Junior’s Adventures 6 CD Audio Set. Kids really can learn about issues such as money from an early age and it is important to start teaching these things from an early age. This set is for children ages 3-12 and takes a hands-on approach to learning about money.
Financial Peace University
FPU is great for helping families to get out of debt and save money. It teaches you how to make the right decisions with your money and empowers you to manage your money well. FPU takes easy to follow Baby Steps to help you to make progress, but not feel overwhelmed. It helps you to eliminate debt using the debt snowball, offers accountability and support, trains you to spend every dollar on paper with the zero-based budget planner, and empowers you by helping you to develop a plan. This is so helpful for anyone who is trying to get back control of their finances or manage their money well.
This set is a great way to get started with the Dave Ramsey system because it immerses you in the basics. Dave teaches you about his Baby Step plan in-depth, shares testimonies from other people, and teaches you step by step how to set up a cash flow plan and pay off your debt. The set includes The Total Money Makeover, Money Answer Book, Cash Flow Planning DVD, Dumping Debt DVD, Designer Red Envelope System, and Dave’s Budgeting Software.
