You can take FPU online, but it's most expensive this way. My church is offering it and I'll be doing it through my church. Only $93 for the new kit that goes with the class - if you order through the church. A friend told me she made back the initial fee inside of one month based on her ideas. I'm all about a good investment!

I just joined this team. Hopefully it will help me keep trying to get finances in order.
My husband and I went through FPU and it was very enlightening. We have been listening to Dave Ramsey for years and he is right on with pretty much all areas of personal finance. I am a full time student working on my BA in accounting and do not work right now. Our biggest problem is income, but that should change in a little over a year, so becoming debt free is slow right now. Taking the course is worth it, though. And if you get a chance to see him in person, Do It. He is a great motivational speaker and that really gives you more incentive to do what needs to be done.
You can't rely on anyone but you to provide for you when you retire. Things are going to get worse before they get better, if it does get better. I don't expect social security to be there when I retire, so I have to do it myself. The governments budget/debt is a reflection of our own inability to to budget and stay out of debt. Just say no to the spoiled child. I have heard Dave Ramsey say this many times.
Hope all have a wonderful day, DAR

I watch Dave Ramsey and believe in a lot of his philosophies, but found that it took a lot of soul searching and sacrificing with the help of my husband and we did it on our own. We are debt free and loving every minute of it. I have been doing it so long, I feel like I could write my own book."L"
