Financial wisdom from a woman of faith

Percentages

Today I had a great conversation with some wise friends.  They are in their 60’s and have made great choices financially!  They are reaping the rewards now and really enjoying life and their wealth.  We talked about how percentages really help guide the season of enjoyment.  You see if you are living debt free, giving away 30% of your income, it should be no big deal that you spend 5% on a vacation or 10% on a car.  So do the math.  And don’t let someone else’s budget guide yours.  God has entrusted it to you – ask him what you need to do with it!

Being Debt Free isn’t about life without payments.  It’s about life WITH opportunity! – Rachel Cruze

I love this quote for so many reasons.  So many accept a life of monthly payments because they reason that it’s not a big deal, after all they can pay the payment each month.  They are not willing to get aggressive and focus everything they have on getting that debt paid off.  And so it goes….years of payments….until finally they wake up an realize they’ve been living this way so long that they’ve passed up so many opportunities.

What would you do if you were debt free???

Quotes

Thinking in terms of minimum monthly payments will keep you poor.  Thinking long term and true cost will lead you to wealth!

Legacy Journey

We started our first class of Legacy Journey today!  This new material from Dave Ramsey is amazing.  The journey to financial freedom is so rewarding and I love celebrating with people each step of the way!!  Today we discussed the snares in our thinking about wealth. It was eye opening.  Societal pressures against wealth are the weights holding our country down.  So why be debt free?  Why build wealth?  It is a holy act.  It is worship to our God.  Imagine what our nation (and world) would look like if American’s embraced building wealth and stopped seeing it as evil.  I propose that there would be little need for government welfare programs.  The people of God and the house of God would be able to do what Scripture taught.  There would be abundant resources to care for the widows, the fatherless and the poor.  We need to reward work!  Encourage wealth!  Celebrate financial success!
