My wife and I are coordinating Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University at church. Our first class was yesterday at 3PM. It rocked! We had a total of 7 families attend our first meeting, and everyone left PUMPED to save money and get out of debt. If you are unfamiliar with FPU, it is a money management system created by Dave Ramsey. This is the first time I’ve actually “sat-down” with all of Dave’s literature, and I have to tell you, it is very, very cool. There are 13 sessions included in the FPU kit, and they cover topics like saving, debt management, and retirement.
The first lesson is called “Super Savers”. Dave talks about an emergency fund, saving for purchases, and saving for long-term investing and retirement. He is energetic, enthusiastic, and informative. If there is a FPU class going on around your area, I highly suggest that you attend!
