Financial Peace University
So, we've become big Dave Ramsey fans in the past couple months. We were hoping to attend FPU but all the classes are Wednesday nights, Sunday nights, in Vancouver or Newberg or beginning in SEPTEMBER which is not very timely for us considering the impending birth of our first child. Well, just for the heck of it I was on daveramsey.com just a bit ago and there's a new class available on Tuesday nights at 7:00pm starting July 1st (next week!) and going to September 23rd (one week from our due date!) in Aloha of all places! (it's probably less than 5 miles from us.) Then I noticed that the FPU lifetime membership kit is on sale for $109.00- that's $90 bucks off- so I emailed Matt and he said let's do it so we are all signed up! I'm excited. What a strange thing to be excited about- financial classes- but I'm stoked we'll be able to go through it (or most of it) before the baby gets here. What a surprise blessing for an otherwise blah Thursday! If anyone is interested in taking it with us that would be fun :)
If you have no clue what I'm talking about, here's a little diddy on FPU from dave's website. He's a Christian financial adviser who uses Biblical principals to teach people about how to handle money. He says he gives the same advice our grandmothers would give us except he keeps his teeth in. ;) We've been listening to his radio program- it's national but it plays pre-recorded on 1190KEX from 7-10pm on weeknights. He's pretty entertaining! People call in with the craziest situations... anywho- Dave is highly recommended entertainment and advice from the Happels :)
