Rev. Clay Horton shares his personal experience with Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University:

My life is more fun and full because I budget.  Seven years ago I never would have connected “fun” with “budget.”  Taking Financial Peace University was life changing for Errinne and me.  Because of the class, I am a better husband, father, friend and church member.

For years I avoided taking Financial Peace University because I did not want to budget.  We were not in debt, we were not living pay check to pay check, so I figured we were doing fine.  When we finally buckled down and took the class, I realized that in many ways we were on an “ok” track, but the class helped us get on the best track.  And who doesn’t want to be on the best financial track?

Errinne and I do not have lucrative paying jobs, but we’ve learned to use each penny we are blessed with most efficiently.  We live our lives without financial worries because we have a strong emergency fund and know how to roll with the financial punches in life.  

When we take a child to the ER, my only concern is my kid’s health, not the bill, because we’ve budgeted for expenses like these.  A few years ago, Coleson was born (hospital bills), we purchased a house (down payment), and bought a new car (our fuel efficient car wouldn’t hold two car seats) all within the span of 3 months.  We paid all of this in cash because Financial Peace taught us how to budget for big upcoming expenses.  As a whole, Americans are extremely wealthy.  In fact, if you earn $50,000 a year, you are in the top 0.31% richest people in the world according to globalrichlist.com.  

Too often, because we don’t know how to budget or save money, we as the richest people live like we are poor.  When we are good stewards with our money, we are able to take care of the needs of our family and even enjoy some of life’s pleasures without feeling guilty because we know we’re financially taking care of tomorrow. 

Life is certainly more fun and full when we do not have debt hanging over our heads.  Life is fun when we can pay for treats or vacations knowing we are also investing in our retirement plans and our children’s college funds.  Life is meaningful when we can tithe fully to the church and give to causes and organizations that need our support and make a difference in the world.  

Budgeting is not fun.  Getting our finances in order can be tough.  But because I took Financial Peace University, I am able to live a fuller life.  If you haven’t taken the class yet, I hope you prayerfully consider taking the class this fall.  I truly believe it can change the course of your life forever and impact your spiritual, physical and mental health
