Joe Sangl came to Galax this weekend and brought his Financial Freedom Experience with him. We had the assignment of making a monthly budget last night as homework. I won’t say it was fun – but not as bad as I had expected. Following it may be a little harder. Joe did a great job of giving practical, biblical reasons to make your money behave. If you ever have the chance to go hear Joe – you should go. He is passionate about seeing people freed from financial prison. I am actually excited about getting some discipline into our finances. It has been about 9 months since Mike started full time ministry and left his engineering job and we have had some financial changes that we really haven’t spent time evaluating. This crusade, as Joe called it, came at just the right time. Another thing I am excited about is teaching these principles to our kids. We are planning to order Financial Peace Jr. from Dave Ramsy to get us started on helping our kids be good stewards of their money. I’ll let you know how it goes.
