|Money management program starts Sunday at local church|
Financial Peace University (FPU), the 13-week program taught by Dave Ramsey, has helped more than 750,000 families positively change their financial future.
This life-changing program teaches families and individuals how to handle their money through common-sense principles and small group accountability.
Christian Faith Outreach church, on Highway 6 in Imperial, is a site for the FPU classes, beginning Sunday, Feb. 8, at 6 p.m.
As they work on a Total Money Makeover, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months.
Dave Ramsey began teaching FPU classes in 1994 in Nashville, Tenn. In 1997, FPU was made available on video across the country with thousands of classes around the nation today.
Topics covered include saving for emergencies, budgeting, relationship and money issues, buying big bargains, getting out of debt, understanding investments, understanding insurance, retirement and college planning, buyer beware, real estate mortgages, careers and extra jobs
Ramsey is a personal money management expert, a radio personality and best-selling author of “The Total Money Makeover.” In his latest book, he exemplifies his life’s work of teaching others how to be financially responsible, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, live prosperously into old age, and give generously to others.
By age 26, he had established a four-million-dollar real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30.
