Tomorrow begins a new experience for me, I am leading a class based on the Dave Ramsey series Financial Peace University. I was hoping for 15 to 20 people… we have 38 so far with several stating, ” I still may come” even though they haven’t registered yet.
This tells me several things, first, the subject matter is highly relevant and interesting, two, the promotional work was more effective than anticipated, and three, prayer really works. I started praying last year in June for this class, mostly because I felt passionate about how much good this could initiate in people’s lives and not just (church people), but for most of us. I realized that most of us do not get any real focused education about personal finances. In fact even those who go to school to receive training about finances often struggle with their own finances.
Even though this class will give people all the tools they need to do really well with finances the reality is that many will not have positive, long-term effects by taking this class, still, I am excited and encouraged that giving people tools is a worthwhile effort, changing people is God’s business.
