I have been very inspired by ALL in blogland that have manged to get out of debt and especially at such young ages, with multiple children and in a fairly short period of time.
I and my husband and 2 children are on a budget and have always loved Dave Ramsey. B4 kiddos my hubs and I went to his 5 hour seminar here locally and were hooked! We had just purchased a home and had some student loans, but that was it at the time. I can even remember when we first went to get the loan for our home, the loan officer looked a little shocked at our paper work and as we looked at each other thinking we were not approved. She turned to us and said this is awesome you all have no debt!!! Like she was shocked, at the time we were too poor to even think about debt we didn't know any other way to live! Looking back I know why she looked so shocked and I wish we had that same thing to say for ourselves now.
So, now that we have awakened from our backslidden (from Dave Ramsey) state and seen that life is too short to continue to stay in debt. Don't get me wrong we are blessed beyond measure I am thankful for all we have, but God's ways are perfect!
I will be posting the changes our family is making in hopes to encourage US as well as others to get out and stay out of debt. I'm sick of living a "NORMAL" life....Normal stinx I want to be WEIRD like Dave Ramsey says so well and I will keep reminding myself of that when the opportunities for new "things" and all the debt that goes with them roll by!
