Is there any time better than the present to get your finances in order?... Okay, maybe a year ago would have been better but it's not too late to start making better money decisions.  We're in the middle of a global pandemic and economic downturn and so now, more than ever, our financial health is extremely important.

Over 4 Monday evenings, this course is simply a look at Dave Ramsey's book, "The Total Money Makeover".  Added to that are some supplementary Dave Ramsey videos that are not only educational but also entertaining.  It's a practical approach to money, debt, saving, spending and generosity based on some wisdom from the Bible.

Since our first TMM in 2016, we've had individuals and families completely change the trajectory of their finances.  From becoming debt free (YES, that is possible), having an Emergency Fund (Hmm, why would anyone need one of those right now?), getting a handle on their spending,  to even being able to be more generous with others, this course has helped dozens of people get in a healthier spot with their money.  And a less stressful spot as well.

Best of all, it's not based on some gimmick or get rich quick plan.  It's a simple plan that requires some hard work, dedication and time.

If you have kids, the BEST benefit may be what they learn from the TMM by watching you.  Yes, they're watching!  That's kind of scary as they are learning more from what you do than what you say... Yikes!

The important thing is that there is hope!  No matter whether you're finances are doing alright or are a complete mess, it's never too late to start.
