One thing that Dave Ramsey has learned through more than 25 years of guiding people on how to win with money: It doesn’t happen in one day. But it can start in one day!
Join Dave, Chris Hogan, and Anthony O’Neal on Sept. 28 for the first-ever Financial Peace Accelerated — a live teaching of all nine lessons in just one day.
At Financial Peace Accelerated, you will learn how to:
- Break the cycle of financial stress by creating and living on a monthly budget. It’s time to tell your money where to go instead of wondering where it went.
- Attack your debts one at a time with gazelle intensity, so that one day you can scream, “’I’M DEBT FREEEEEEE!”
- Put yourself on the path toward millionaire status by understanding how to save for the future, invest like a pro, and give with outrageous generosity!
At the event, you will also receive a year-long membership to Financial Peace University where you can review all nine lessons, discover all the tools you need and enjoy free access to EveryDollar Plus, our game-changing budgeting app.
Individual tickets are $89 and couple tickets are $129. Register here.
The all-day event is Saturday, Sept. 28 at Calvary Orlando, 1199 Clay Street, Winter Park FL 32789.
Dr. Kara Powell recently published The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Family and through her research and parent interviews, the power of parents apologizing to their kids quickly became clear. Here’s one thing that she has learned through her research:
What separates Christianity from every other religion is grace. All other religions believe we reach God through obedience and behaviors; in Christianity, God reaches us through unmerited grace.
If we want our homes to drip with grace, we as parents need to be quick to apologize. Confessing our mistakes to our kids and asking them to forgive us not only builds closer family relationships, it also helps our kids experience the closeness of God’s tender mercies.
So thanks to our research, I’ve started saying two words more frequently to my kids. I’m sorry.
“I’m sorry for the tone of voice I used when I asked you to empty the dishwasher.”
“I’m sorry that I misunderstood the conflict you were having with your brother and jumped to an unfair conclusion.”
“I’m sorry that I wasn’t sensitive enough to how tired you were from soccer.”
If you want to make your home a hub of grace, try the following:
1. Keep your personal antennae up for times when your own fatigue causes you to speak unkindly to your kids.
2. When you feel like you’ve wronged your kids, tell them that you’re sorry and ask for their forgiveness.
3. Make sure you are quick to extend forgiveness to your kids when they need to do the same.
According to our research, saying “I’m sorry” isn’t a sign of parental failure. It can be a bridge to greater family intimacy and faith.
A nutritious meal. A safe place to sleep. Access to resources. Knowing somebody cares. Hope comes to life when a homeless adult or child’s suffering is finally alleviated.
