Nearly 1.5 million families have been able to positively change their financial situation through Financial Peace University, the 13-week course taught by Dave Ramsey on DVD, and is coming to Murfreesboro.
“FPU teaches families and individuals common-sense principles like how to make a plan with their money so they are able to free themselves of debt and build lasting wealth,” a release states. “FPU is available for churches, military, non-profit agencies, and businesses.”
Classes will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 4, at 311 Butler Drive in Murfreesboro.
Dave Ramsey knows first-hand what it is like to be broke and hopeless, the release continues. Because of his experiences, he decided to help other people change the way they handle their money and began teaching FPU in 1994.
“Because of the lessons we learned in FPU, we have been able to pay off $36,000 in just 17 months,” says Christine Cohn, a former FPU participant. “Debt had caused us to stop dreaming because we couldn’t look into the future without feeling stressed. Now we have a plan for our money and working together for our future.”
After each lesson there is a small group discussion that provides accountability and encouragement. Topics include saving for emergencies, budgeting, relationships and money, and getting out debt.
“FPU is a fun and easy to understand program. Whether you are deeply in debt or financially secure, FPU will help you gain a new perspective on how to handle your money,” Ramsey added. “These lessons are especially essential right now as people are trying to regain control of their finances.”
According to the news release, the current economy has people feeling more hopeless than ever when it comes to their money. In an effort to recover the economy from the ground up, Ramsey has begun The Great Recovery that challenges individuals to take personal responsibility for their finances and leaders to educate others about finances through programs such as FPU.
Each class participant needs a kit that includes a lifetime family membership to FPU, an FPU workbook, an FPU envelope system, 13 audio lessons, bonus CD, budgeting forms, debit card holders, and Ramsey’s best-selling book – Financial Peace. Kits can be purchased through the host location, daveramsey.com or by calling 888-227-3223. Contact Andy Mitchell at 615-631-5919 for more information or to register for the Murfreesboro classes.
