Budget like a Gazelle

Cody and I received one of the most amazing wedding presents, a great couple in our church paid for us to take the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Small Group! So, for the past 4 weeks, we've attended (with the exception of this past Sunday night-the wifey wasnt feeling too good!) Anyways, it has been incredible!! Cody and I arent HORRIBLE with money, but we sure needed a lesson or two on how to stop managing and start being successful! Especially in the ministry, we wanted to know how to make our "dollars go farther"!

Well, this past week, we've been doing our Cash Flow Planning Budget! AH-MAZING!! To be quite frank, I (LaRae) have HATED budgets! I never wanted to feel like I was tied down financially and strapped to allocating my funds where they needed to go! But, this is an amazing budget! It even gives you a BLOW MONEY catergory-- so great for Cody and I! haha. The best thing is that we KNOW where our money is going now-not just looking at our monthly statement and saying, "WOW, how in the WORLD did we spend all this cash!?!?!"

Anyways, if you're in financial trouble or simply need help understanding your money-DO IT!! It's fabulous!!

Love and Blessings,

I just recently started looking into Dave Ramsey's stuff too! It is amazing! I think I am going to go through the program. You will have to tell me what you think at the end!
