In the last 20 years or so as the economy has become worse and worse an increasing number of capable but poor young couples, single parents, and seniors have been made homeless. These people would work and support themselves if only they were permitted to do so. A huge part of this problem is debt, in particular student loan debt. Those who are still in their own homes are hanging on by a thread usually because most or all their income is lost to debt service.
Recognizing that this fundamental and preventable problem is so important is the motivation for provision of the free and open to the public Dave Ramsey Financial Peace training offered by both Adult Life Training, Inc. and Abundant Life Church. The next classes start in September, with one beginning Mondays 6:00PM-8:00PM and two others Wednesdays 7:30PM-9:30PM ( one for college age students and the other for adults).
Links to register on-line are http://www.daveramsey.com/fpu/locations/class/1026344 (starting Wed 9/7) and http://www.daveramsey.com/fpu/locations/class/1022752 (starting Mon 9/19). A “Membership Kit” can be purchased from the Ramsey organization, but it is entirely optional. Interested people (or families, or groups) can also call Abundant Life Church at 260.432.0014 for additional information, to register, or to arrange training through your own church or organization.
It’s bad but it’s not hopeless: none of us has all the answers but together we can do more than any of us can achieve alone.
