6 Reasons You Should Attend Financial Peace University

6 Reasons You Should Attend Financial Peace University

For the longest time, I was clueless about finances. But now I have a plan and that fact has changed everything for me and my family.

The statistics for the average American are frightening when it comes to finances. The following table is from this article by Nerd Wallet (which is a fantastic name).

If you find yourself in the following situation, Financial Peace University is for you:

  • You are alive

Yes. If you are alive, Financial Peace University is for you. Here’s why:

6 Reasons You Should Attend Financial Peace University

1. It will give you a proven, holistic financial plan

Many of us find that instead of us controlling our finances, our finances are controlling us.

Before my wife and I had a plan, we constantly felt like we needed to file missing person reports. Yes. Missing persons, as in green persons.

But now we have a plan that has helped millions of people get out of debt, create margin, increase generosity, and build wealth.

2. It will give you a plan when “life happens”

If something breaks (things always break), instead of swiping a credit card or taking out an unsecured loan, imagine being able to pay cash for whatever it is that broke.

That‘s an amazing feeling.

3. It will give you a path to actually get out of debt in less time than you can imagine

Imagine what it would feel like to have no payments. Imagine not owing anyone anything.

Financial Peace University gives you a plan to get out of debt.

The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. – Proverbs 22:7

4. It will give you the ability to give more than you ever have in your life

Jesus said that it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).

Check out all these stories of people talking about how they’ve been able to increase their giving and be a blessing to others:

Cultivating generosity in your heart and in your budget is what followers of Jesus do.

5. It will help you build a legacy that goes far beyond you

Imagine being able to pay cash for your kids’ college. Imagine being able to help them learn the value of hard work, saving, giving, and spending responsibly.

I am so excited that my kids will have the knowledge they need to avoid the mistakes that my wife and I have made with our finances.

When we make changes and pass those changes along to our kids, our family tree is transformed. When we get control of our finances and become intentional about them, we teach our kids in word and deed how to be good stewards of God’s resources.

6. It will equip you to be a faithful steward

God has given us what we have to be a steward, a manager of those things. It’s not so much about what we have, it’s what we do with it.

God wants us to honor Him in our finances just like He wants us to honor Him in our hearts and minds.
