In Pursuit of Financial Peace…Learning to Break Free of Debt

In Search of Financial Peace

We all want a life that is full of peace. Nobody wants their life to be characterized by turmoil, stress, and discouragement. Everyone wants to have a peaceful and stable life. Financial Peace is one of the greatest types of peace. One of the most common obstacles standing in the way of a peaceful life is financial problems involving debt. Depression and marital problems in America today are quite often brought about by debt. You can have a successful career, a loving family, and a huge circle of friends and still be miserable. You can even have a great balance in your spiritual life, and still have a life of turmoil and distress because of debt

Inner Peace Begins With God

Having a right relationship with God is absolutely the most important key to a life of inner peace. I’m thankful my wife and I both are members of a wonderful church, and have both been born-again Christians for many years. We owe our entire life to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Without God, and the gift of His son Jesus, we are nothing. Even though we have had the inner peace of God that passes all understanding for many years, We realized something was missing.

In 2012 we realized we would never have the peace God wanted us to have until put God first with our money. This involved changing our entire perspective on how we managed our finances. At one time, we were drowning in debt. At the very worst point of our financial struggles, we decided enough was enough. We knew we had to change. That’s when we started implementing the financial principles taught by financial expert Dave Ramsey. That was one of the best decisions we ever made.

Financial Peace University

Dave Ramsey himself is a very devout born-again Christian. That is the primary reason we chose to apply Dave’s methods of debt elimination. Being a Christian, Dave not only offers great financial advice, but he also delivers it from a biblical perspective. In 2013, my wife and I enrolled in a 9 week Dave Ramsey class called Financial Peace University. That experience and the things we learned about money management and debt helped us to eliminate a huge amount of personal debt. We are currently down to nothing but a mortgage payment.

If you have never heard of Financial Peace University, or have heard of it and never checked it out, I encourage you to take a look at it! If you are in a financial state of chaos like we were, it could change your life! Below is a video that gives you a little taste of what Financial Peace University is all about.

My wife and I have had the distinct privilege and honor to be the facilitators for the Financial Peace University many times over the years.  We love sharing the information to others that we ourselves found to be so crucial in our journey toward eliminating debt from our lives. Debt will keep you in a self imposed prison preventing you from ever having real peace in your life. Part of having a life of peace comes from having financial peace.
